Ugh just kill me

So the doctors are finally showing concerned for my ear problems now that I have ringing in both my ears. I thought my inner ear infection was just not fixed still somehow but they said it’s completely gone and the ringing in another ear is unconnected and it’s possible it’s a tumor in my head causing it. I don’t have any medical insurance anymore though so I can’t get it checked or go to the specialist they told me about. I really, really hate this bs. Its ridiculous how we don’t have any real health care thats not ridiculously expensive in this country and who knows maybe I’ll die before I have anything else to stress me out.

I have serious ringing in both ears, got worse after a shooting accident (fucking ear plugs fell out) and now my hearing is totally fucked. Going to see a specialist in the coming weeks.
Nothing makes me feel older than not hearing conversations. Ugh.🙄😔
So I feel for you brother. 🤗🙏😇

Sinus congestion can cause ringing in ears. If you ever have post nasal drip or itchy throat in the morning this is a sign.
I used to often keep ringing in ear with no infection.
Good luck hope its not serious
Curious as to why they would jump to tumor because ringing in both ears is so often sinus pressure?

[@867436,REMsleep] they ruled that out. I’ve had ringing in my left for 18 years now but my right is new. I have no actual normal causes of ringing in the ears either.

[@364703,Captainjackass] But an 18 year tumor is rather unlikely so I still hope that its not serious and I don't think that you should worry alot but do get whatever follow up that is suggested as soon as you can
No insurance at all? Not even Medicare? How stupid is that? (Not you, the situation.)

[@1201381,ShadowfireTheSarcastic] I’ve been working on applying for it but have yet to hear back after months.
