    Can fluctuating hormones cause ringing in the ears?  I've been to an ear doctor, I have little hearing loss, but this ringing all seemed to start when I was going through menopause.

     

    Thank you.

    No, Mickey, ringing in the ears (tinnitus) is not a symptom of menopause.  There could be a very slight chance you are having a reaction to medication if you're on hormones.  The best way to tell is to go off them for a few days.  If the ringing goes away, you have your answer.

    Good luck,

    Sandy

    Yes, I have heard and read that not only can estrogen cause ringing in the ears, but so does menopause.  I had a full hysterwrectomy with ovary removal (both) and I have ringing in my ears all the time now.  Drives me nuts!  But...I asked the same question and was told by 3 different doctors that, yes, hormonal ups and downs and hormones can bring it on.  Though medications can cause it too.  In my case, it was induced from surgical menopause.
