Question
Why is it that when there is a constant loud noise, i get a buzzing feeling and sound in my right ear. Maybe related, I've had tinnitus in both ears for a few years. What could this be?

Answer
Hi, Phillip,

You have tinnitus again, a noise, buzzing or otherwise, that is seen spontaneously or sometimes after loud noise exposures.  It can be a sign of a hearing loss.  If you have no pain or dizziness, than you can watch things for a few days.  If this bugs you too much or is getting worse or associated with other symptoms, then have your doctor check you and your ears.

Good luck, Dr. Olson

I would be happy to attempt to answer any questions about general pediatric topics, either medical issues or behavioral issues. This would include all the various questions one receives in a busy pediatric practice. I`m a board certified pediatrician in northern Michigan and have been in practice for over 15 years. I enjoy the teaching role I have in our practice and would enjoy the opportunity to help others with their pediatric problems.
