My mother has had tinnitus for at least 5 years now, heard lots of noises as loud as a lawn mower. Recently, she says she"s been hearing music instead, the same song over and over. She says it's driving her crazy.

Tinnitus caused long time hearing loss in left ear. I hear constant ringing noise but it seems from both ears. I have recently experienced dizziness.

I have a constant ringing of the ears that will sometimes lessen for brief periods to the point where I can hardly hear the ringing.
