Ringing in ear after weight lifting (7weeks and counting)

I was doing a heavy dead-lift near the end of my work out, I didn't complete the lift as I was going for a new max, at the end of the attempt my right ear was left with a high pitch ringing, it never quits and will constantly switchs between 2 or 3 different tones all day and night. I was wearing headphones during the lift at average volume. Nothing I do really effects the ringing, some times i think if i lay down or sit up the pitch might change but its hard to tell if that is the case. Nothing like this has ever happend before. I have seen my doctor, he told me to try and use mental crystals in steam, but it has had no effect, and probably not that kind of problem. I am on a long wait list to see a specialist, so for now, I thought I would ask around if any one can shed some light on my problem, and if there is something i can do to help it.

Please help if you can.

Ringing In The Ears After Exercise | LIVESTRONG.COM

Quote:
Cause

The most typical form of tinnitus after exercise is caused by the increased blood flow in your body. When you exercise, your heart pumps more blood to help support your muscles with oxygen. This can result in extra blood pumped to areas that may not need it, like your ears. Ringing in the ears can also be the result of ear infections and colds, which could increase as you put pressure on your ears through increased blood flow during exercise. You might also experience tinnitus from keeping your workout music too loud in your ear

If it is tinnitus, it is usually life-long.

I have had it for as long as I can remember...you get use to it. I can't hear it anymore unless I really pay attention.

Either way, you should see an ENT. You can get a referral from your GP. I know you said you are on a long wait-list....is it for an ENT? It shouldn't take that long to see one...maybe you can be referred to another one. Also, you can phone the office and see if you can be put on a "cancel list". If you have a flexible schedule, you can usually get in pretty quick.

I'm in Chilliwack, might have to do with local availability, and I'm pretty sure it's an ENT I think. When I asked my GP if it was tinnitus, he felt it was unlikely, because according to him, tinnitus doesn't usually come on so quickly like it did for me, least that's what he said.

I am always ready for the worst of any situation, but life long is really depressing, I consider myself and amature audiophile, and I've always be extra careful with my ear safety, I have custom made ear plugs, if i go to a concert or lounge I wear ear plugs, I dont listen to music or movies overly loud. And now if i have a bum ear for life, my car audio, home theater, and studio headphones all feel wasted...

Anyways, any other ideas?

IF it is tinnitus, you will be okay. I can tell you that it lessens over time and you will no longer notice it. I promise you! It was VERY annoying at first but it does not affect my life.

Have you recently had a head cold? Did he look at the ear drum? Could it have been ruptured? Do you crackling sounds when you swallow?

I had a flu a couple weeks after it happend but I was clear before it, he looked in the ear he said he saw no damage. I dont think it was ruptured. I do not hear crackling sounds when swallowing, just three differnt, one quiter one i dont hear often, and two that are always switch, in five secnods i will be like -----_____---__-_____-------____--_ thats what i hear most of the time, it'd be better if it were just one tone

hmmm...well, you can have fluctuating tinnitus. This can be effected by your blood pressure, food allergies, environmental allergies.

if there is no crackling or congestion, it probably isn't a Eustachian tube dysfunction. Any noticeable hearing loss? The ENT will conduct a hearing test during your appointment...but have you noticed anything? Any luck getting on the cancellation list?

I think I'm on the list, so it's just a waiting game. And yes i feel as tho a few higher tone sounds seem muffled in that ear.
