Yes

If you take aspirin, especially; however so many products hide aspirin with code names only a PhD can discover.
Quick Google search ‘products containing aspirin.’ It’s just that Dr. Google is much more thorough than I am.

Yes, have had the ringing for years, but since having a virus causing sore throat and deep cough early April for which they have me 10 days antibiotics, now I have a buzzing also! The dang buzzing is like a fly or lawn mower in the neighbor's yard. Really affecting my hearing badly. May need yup resort to hearing aids soon ugh

My sis in law had it really bad. Doctor after doctor couldn't figure out the cause, until she found a really good ENT who diagnosed a fungal infection in her ears. Once treated it went away. Something to ask about.

Hope I can find ENT who will look for fungus, etc and not just try to sell hearing aids! I went to one couple months ago. She did hearing test and escorted me to their audiologist to discuss hearing aid options. Took their papers and left

How would a hearing aid help with tinnitus? Doctors can be so frustrating. Best of luck finding a good doc.

Jamie Enriquez My thought exactly!

I did but found through research that once I eliminated all foods with aspertame or MSG it totally went away eventually.

I do not use any artificial sweetener or MSG for those very reasons.

Betsy Proctor 3 years

I stopped aspartame years ago (was addicted to Diet Coke in 80's and 90's. I may get MSG if it's buried in anything other than Chinese food.
