Ibuprofen,too much licorice, a change in the weather will make your ears ring too.
I am sure there are more but those I have direct experience with.

Sometimes an antihistamine works to dry up the eustachian tube and that helps. I have not tried it in a while. Since my last ear infection my ear has been humming along quite nicely. I should take my own advice. lol

Mine ring all the time though. I thought Tinnitus was an occasional thing brought on by loud noise or infection.

All you have to do is put the word "chronic" in front of it, and it becomes permanent.

I remember when my ears rang and my head exploded all the time and I thought I had a brain tumor. Good times, good times.

I was hoping to avoid that part - At what point do we determine it is chronic? After a week, month or year?

I'm still trying to wish it away

Mine varies in loudness and disruptiveness. The worse time for me is at night when trying to go to sleep or when I wake up in the middle of the night and can't go back to sleep. I don't know. I just chalked it up to occupational exposure in the military.

Well I followed the dead around for awhile and went to A LOT of pretty loud concerts when I was younger. Just can't get why it started seemingly outta nowhere....

Right elbow, and shoulder. In fact my whole right arm. Pain is shooting up and down from both elbow and shoulder joint.

It's really annoying.

Har! Probably.

It's a combination of tennis elbow, and repetetive strain type thing. My hand as well is painful. Add to that there's a swelling under my arm (yes I got it checked, just a cyst deep underneath the surface). I think it's pressing on a nerve.

Half of this shit is down to the computer I think. A dog who pulls on the lead doesnt help much either ;p
