Ringing In the Ear
Sometimes I get a ringing in my ear, it goes louder then quiter like a alarm, I think more often I get it when I am going to bed and I have to just lie and listen to it till it stops..
I dont know why I get it?
I am not taking any medication, I do have anxiety abit every so often over certain things..
Does anyone else just get this every so often?

ringing in the ear
See your doctor and see an ENT! Could be a lot of things:
1. Certain medications like asprin can cause it
2. Too much salt, caffeine, aspertain from diet soda (or sweeterners)
3. Could be a tumor (which is why you need to see a doctor)
4. Could be from allergies
5. As in my case (I think but it could be an allergy - again check with a doctor and try something like Claritin for a period of time) it could be a virus that will work its way out.
6. Stress, high cholesterol etc. Again, a good reason to check with your doctor.

Ringing in the Ear
I had similar symptoms and it turned out to be electro magnetic hyper sensitivity -- I especially had symptoms after cell phone or cordless phone use. Definitely worth exploring.
Feel better

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and I understand your concern.
You would need psychotherapy sessions like CBT besides toprol and ativan. Psychoeducation and relaxation excercise like yoga and meditation are also beneficial.
I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
