Hi
Welcome to Healthcare Magic and thanks for putting up the query
You are having tinnitus. It can be due to wax in the ears or any acute loud noise exposure or neural loss.
Please tell me if you have any relevant history.
Any history of nasal infection or throat infection in the recent past?
For how long are you having these symptoms?
Any hearing difficulty?
You should get a pure tone audiometry done.
Follow up with the required information so that I can suggest you better.
Take care
Thanks and regards

I have constant post nasal drainage. I have a history of having my ears lanced 20 times during my child hood for ear infections, I have had these for about 10 years on and off.

You can use nasal spray and take steam inhalation. This will help to relieve the symptoms temporarily.
