I recently got a severe ear infection which came on suddenly and within an hour of its onset I aquired a clogged feeling in my left ear and then tinnitus. I cleared up the ear infection within 5 days but over a week later I still have mild tinnitus and now outside noise and my own voice is amplified in it. I was wondering if anybody has suggestions or has anybody experienced this before. I still take ACV everyday but I stopped putting garlic in my ear. Maybe I should start that back up again. Thank you ahead of time for any help you can give me. Colleen

Severe tinnitus immediately following an ear infection: Not even 6 hours ago I could feel an ear infection starting in my left it. It progressively got worse until it quickly grew into horrible dizziness and then ringing in my left ear. Right now i'm sitting here in the middle of the night with this loud ringing which is not allowing my to sleep. I've downed ACV and have had clove of garlic in my ear for the last 4 hours. The pain from the ear infection is nearly gone. I know I still have it when I yawn b/c I can still feel pain. I'm praying that when the inflammation goes down and the infection goes away the tinnitus will go away also. I'm hoping I can get any other ideas I'm not already trying. Has anybody else ever experienced this? I'm just amazed at how quickly this came on! I have a client who has SEVERE tinnitus is both ears and I see the effects it has on him so I'm extremely concerned!
Thanks for any help you can give. I'm hoping when I fall asleep I'll wake up and it'll be gone!!
