Audiology/Otolaryngology/Rumbling In Ear


Zilvinas wrote at 2013-01-05 11:56:45

The biggest problem is that rumbling in ears is not the same as tinnitus and should not be understood as ringing in the ears.

I am experiencing rumbling in my left ear for two years already. Nobody and nothing could help here. Audiologists consider it as tinnitus, but it is not!

Rumbling occurs on peaky loud sounds, hits of dishes and plates. It might occur when touching the ear, when people shout or speak loudly. But only then.

I'm still looking for some proffesional help too.

I am qualified to answer all questions related to the diagnosis and rehabilitative treatment of hearing and balance disorders. This includes evaluation of hearing and balance, counseling, amplification (hearing aids and assistive devices), tinnitus (noises in head) evaluation and management, cochlear implants, and audiology in general.


I started my career as a hearing instrument specialist (on a trainee license) in 1998. After almost 2 years, I decided that I needed to pursue higher education if I was to provide the best care to hearing impaired patients that I could. In 2007, I completed my Doctor of Audiology and have been providing audiological care for almost 5 years. I have vestibular, cochlear implant, and pediatric experience along with prescribing, fitting, and verification of hearing aid amplification as part of comprehensive hearing loss rehabilitation.
