I just wanna relax and go to sleep but this shriek is overwhelming and the stress is making my headache worse. T^T
The only thing I can do is cover both my ears with my hands like I'm trying to not hear someone yelling. Fingers to the top of my head. And drum my fingers. It only works for a bit but helps when it's bothering me.
Sadly, this only works as long as the drumming continues
I often get it as my migraine is starting but it doesn’t usually last long. I’m sorry you have to deal with that
It's an Eternal Shriek for me, but it's been particularly loud this week.
I’m so used to it by this point that it doesn’t phase me, but that’s prob not a good thing
Or you're just better at accepting annoying stuff lol
Dana I like that spin on it
The normal screech (or maybe like crickets) in the background isn't so bad for me, however when it starts ringing loud I firmly press my ears closed and it lowers the noise level at least.
It’s a sensory aura, so I don’t know if you can do anything to stop it. I also get it before and during a migraine:(
Check your blood pressure
Good advice (and important because these things should be checked), but I get the ringing in my ears with perfectly fine blood pressure (sometimes even low, which I know isn't ideal either but yeah! )
I have the same issue, but do know that once my blood pressure was addressed with meds years later. the ringing stopped. Right now I have a cold and the ringing is awful.
Carlie That happened for my dad! He fixed his blood pressure & it stopped. Sadly not my case, though
I have tinnitus in my right ear its not part of my migraine I wear ear plugs to sleep it helps a bit
I wish earplugs worked for me
I started sleeping with headphones in and low volume binaural migraine and or sleep music playing. Many run for three hours so I can get sleep.

I use cozy phones head phones. They are easy to sleep with and can be used as a sleep mask. They are very soft too
Tinnitus can be maddening. I have it in my left ear really badly, which is my pain side.
Caffeine makes it much worse, and so does chocolate.
Some medicines do too, like Aleve or ibuprofen.
It used to drive me wild until I realized adding background noise concealed it.
So I have the TV or radio on all the time.
Also, I use a bite guard because when I grind my teeth it’s much worse.
Sent with love.
Yeah I use a white noise generator on my phone and it helps big time.
Google the Reddit tinnitus cure. It works for some people
I'd be very surprised if that's a cure at all, who ever invented it would be a billionaire by Now!
Non stop ringing for several months now. Used to be just occasionally
I was low on b12 and started taking a daily supplement and it’s helped my vertigo, along with magnesium. I also use Flonase daily.
It helps tinnitus is what I meant to say too!
I've had permanent tinnitus for 4 years Now! It's making my migraines worse, but it's usually a lifetime affliction so I have to put up with it.
Constant and has been going on for as long as I can even remember. I honestly don't even remember a time when my ears didn't ring. Sometimes it gets very loud and I have trouble blocking it out, other times I am just so used to it, it is kind of like people who live next to freeways and don't hear the constant hum of the traffic anymore. When it gets really bad I will usually run the air conditioner and listen to that steady hum instead just so I can sleep.
Sorry about your major disruption. Get it all the time. Have it right now. Somehow I just learned to live with it. Think of things that interest me and do things I enjoy. Perhaps listen to an audio book or music to help fall asleep. Perhaps ask doctor for sleeping medicine like Trazadone.
I have it every day n gets worse when a migraine is proaching
