What causes persistent headache with buzzing sound in the right ear?

Hi, I ve had a headache for about a month now. It started off with a dizzy spell and nausea then turned into a headache which is mainly to the top right hand side of my skull. The headaches vary from the back of my head to the top and sometimes above my eyes but is always there. The headache sometimes eases but I always have pressure and tightness in my head. I also have a buzzing in my right ear. I have been prescribed amitriptyline but doesn t seem to help. I ve had eyes tested and blood tests and these were all fine. Please help me.

Based on your description, it appears that you could be having problems related to the inner ear.

You need a clinical examination and undergo certain tests to know what could be the cause, so that it can be treated accordingly.

Kindly consult ENT specialist for clinical evaluation and appropriate management.

This morning when answering the phone at work the dial tone and the people talking sounded funny. At first I thougt it was the phone, but later when I happened to answer the phone with my left ear, everything sounded normal. I immediately switched to my right ear and noticed that the dial tone was louder and more of a buzz ier sound than the normal steady tone, also the people had a sort of robotic sound. Now there is a slight ringing, or white noise sensation in my right ear. I did have a slight headache for a while, but took tylenol and it went away. Any idea what could cause this so suddenly?
