Yes, but it never lasts long at all & it isn't super loud. I also have been having my ears pop for a while now & it's like I keep going through a phase where everytime I swallow or burp or something, one will pop and I won't be able to hear good forever! It drives me insane. It started when I was sick with some respiratory crap & now it happens often at random. So annoying!

I have ringing in my ears quite often. I've had ear problems my entire life though.

Yeah I do. I feel like it's pretty common to have at least sometimes.

Yes, mine even hits different tones. Mine is due to crappy sinuses and pressure.

Yes--all the time. I have very bad ear infections and also change altitudes frequently during the day when we go into the mountains....

Yes I have ringing in my ears most times and have been diagnosed with tinnitus. It's nt as bad though now since I no longer sit under an air vent at work.

When I was younger I would have it at least once a week, was never diagnosed but ever since I moved from the coast to a city I rarely ever got it. I actually read online somewhere on a paranormal site that ringing is to prevent you from hearing other voices and if you listen hard you can hear them, but to becareful because if you can HEAR them, you'll SEE them!
I don't dare try!

I do sometimes, but it's usually only after a really good orgasm.

Yes, but nothing major or consistent enough to bother me. When it happens, I put my finger in my ear, and it is almost immediately gone. I have no clue why that makes it go away!

Has been happening more often. Continue to drum, and there is no way of keeping it quiet.

yea, I just try to ignore it. I keep thinking about that scene in Children of men, after the bombs goes off.

No I have not. I suppose I'm lucky for that. The only ringing I get in my ear is the damn alarm clock.

I have been playing in Metal bands for almost 20 years. All things considered, I think I am doing pretty well. Yes I do get some ringing occasionally, but my hearing is pretty intact. I think I was around 28, and I was playing in 3 bands and recording other bands a lot, and I decided that I really had to start wearing earplugs.

The thing I didn't realize at first was, once you get used to wearing earplugs, it's not a big deal. But at first it is such a drastic change that it is kind of discouraging. Now, I carry earplugs with me all the time, and use them to sleep through noise, tune out the background on road trips, they are a really handy thing to always have in your bag.
