Hearing repeated sounds and echo in my ear.

Posted by @huoda, Feb 12, 2017

I hear repeated sounds in my left ear. It was preceded with very mild discomfort which evolved to echo.

@huoda Thanks for your posting. I’m sorry to hear of your sounds and noises. As a person with tinnitus myself, I know how annoying extra noises can be. It might be helpful for our Mayo Community to respond to your situation if you provide a little more information. For example, how long ago did it start, does it last all day, when did the sound change to an echo? Also, have you talked with a doctor regarding it? If so, did he give you a diagnosis or suggest a treatment? Looking forward to getting to know you better. Teresa

Thank you, Teresa, for reply. I’m 50 years old, on hypertension treatment for 17 years. I have never complained of any ear issues, but I have intermittent sinusitis relieved with over the counter medication. Since a year, I had very very mild discomfort in my ear, but there was nothing abnormal when I visited my doctor. Three days ago, I started to complain from echo which suddenly accompanied with a hearing of repeated sounds when I talk or when I listen to others.

Thanks @huoda for the extra information. You mentioned a mild discomfort in your ear, is that a feeling of fullness or an ache? Is your hearing as good in that ear as in the other? Did the doctor you saw do a hearing test or any other type of test? Also, was it an ENT doctor.? If not, I would suggest that you see an ENT doctor. They might be able to pin point the problem better than a primary care doc. Just some thoughts. Best wishes as you continue your search for answers. Teresa

My hearing is ok. You are right, I think it is better to consult an ENT specialist. Thanks again Teressa. It is wonderful to find someone respond to you 🙂

Hello Kana
Thanks for your suggestions. No, I didn’t see any discussion. I searched online for an answer, and I ended up here :). I think I’m lucky.

checking in with you @huoda. Were you able to seek consultation from an ENT? Are you still experiencing sounds in your left ear?

I recently have been experiencing many of the mentioned symptoms: fullness in the ear, echo sounds, pulsing sounds. After an MRI, a VNG test and a hearing test with an ENT it was discovered that there was a benign tumor in the inner ear tube which affects the auditory nerve. This also causes balance issues. I was referred to an PT that specializes in Vestibuler balance issues. My ENT said I could take some medication as mentioned but it inhibits the brain from getting stronger in dealing with balance and dizziness so I will try to go without it. I understand that radiation an/or surgery to remove the tumor may cause more damage.

Hi @mitchelkandy. Welcome to Mayo Clinic Connect! Thank you for sharing you experience.

Did your ENT mention what the tumor was called?
