I have been to see 4 different doctors, for ringing in my left ear. I just started having this problem 2 months ago. It seems to get worse if I have a cold. The last doctor I just went to said it was from a deviated septum. Has anyone had this same thing? I snore alot, have headaches all the time. Its driving me nuts!!!!!!!! Since this ringing began, I now have panic attacks, NOT FUN!!! It keeps me up at night, and stresses me out HELP!!!!! Can a deviated septum really cause ringing in the ear?

  • A deviated septum can't directly cause tinnitus, but people with deviated septums are more prone to sinus infectious, which can develop into ear infections, which do cause tinnitus. I suspect antibiotics would clear up any drainage problems you're having and eliminate the ringing. Has your doctor given you any antibiotics? If he just tells you that you just have a "cold," he's probably wrong...it sounds to me like you may have an ear infection or sinus infection. Just in case you're wondering, tinnitus can also be a symptom of a lot of other things, like allergies, heavy metal poisoning, certain medications, or a defect in your ear bones. Ask your doctor to test you for all of these things!
