Ringing ear
I had a tonsil infection on my right side in January 2004 and it was painful for just one day .I got antibiotics and it went away now my right ear always rings in conjuction with blood if ii press down a vein leading to that ear on any position on my neck the ringing goes away. If i release then there is lots of ringing that goes on in that ear.All docs gave me ear ointments but nothing worked.What must have gone wrong.If i face to the right it doesnt ring but if i turn my face to the left then the ringing starts again.Is it going to b like this forever or it will go away plesase help.

Dear HM

I am not sure whether you have seen an ENT before. For this particular problem that you are experiencing, the best would be to get the opinion of an ENT specialist. Please e-mail me and let me know, if you need a referral or a second opinion, i will gladly refer you to someone in your area.

Hope to hear from you soon
Kind regards
