Hi, welcome to the ehealth forum and I am glad to help you.
You seem to be suffering from tinnitus, a hearing disorder that can subject you to all sorts of bizarre ear noises. Nerves and special nerve endings inside inner ear simply wear out with age and overexposure to loud noise. That means your inner ear may be sending fake sounds to your brain. Tinnitus may be caused by an earache, a bacterial infection, fluid in the middle ear, a hole in the eardrum or a big plug of wax or in very few cases it could be the result of a tumor on the auditory nerve of the inner ear.
You must consult ENT specialist to clear up this problem. Avoid too much aspirin (>8-10/day) and avoid loud noise.
Hope this helps. Take care.
