I have tinnitus and just live with it. Nothing helps. The other day, I did have a head cold and a SECOND tone showed up in one of my ears. It did finally go away but had me a bit worried I was going to have 2 tone hearing issues.

You do not wait it out. If your ears are ringing today they will be ringing 50 years from now. No cure; they can't even nail the cause.

Your ears, sinuses and teeth are all connected, and when those areas get crammed with thick mucus due to de-hydration, it needs to be drained. Not draining is how bad bacterial infections start.
I use Ocean Spray, too...and just to be clear...

It's saline solution, not cranberry juice!

I have the same problem - my doctor says it is a faulty eustachian (sp?) tube. He said that Guifanesen (sp?), the main ingeredient in Mucinex sometimes works to relieve the pressure build-up. I get the "extra-strength" Mucinex, and take one every 12 hours, and it does seem to relieve the pressure.

As far as the ringing, he said the only thing he had heard of was "Quietus", which I hear advertised occasionaly on the radio. Due to it's high price, I've never tried it. However, there is a fairly new product at Walgreen's (and other pharmacies) called "Ring Relief." Compared to Quietus, it's fairly cheap. (about $12.00 for 60 pills here in AZ). For me it does not TOTALLY get rid of the ringing, but it does seem to take the edge off of it - make it not so noticeable.

Hope these give you some more ideas - I know how frustrating it is. Why oh Why didn't I use hearing protection when I was younger . . . ?

Both of my ears have been ringing for over 25 years (tinnitus) caused by loud noises such as shooting when I was a kid without ear protection! There's no cure for tinnitus but I guess I've kind of got used to the ringing, but it's the hearing loss that goes along with it that really sucks!
