Dear Dudu

I need to have more detail but it sound to me like you might have a whisltling sound in your area, which we refer to as Tinnitus. There are a number of types and causes for tinnitus as well as things that can make it worse. To name a few: certain diseases, certain medication, hearing loss, noise exposure, age, alcohol, smoking vitamin deficiencies, stress, high blood pressure etc.

I am concerned about the fact that it is just in one ear. I would recommend that you see an Ear, Nose and Throat specialist as soon as possible. It would also be advisable to have your hearing tested by an Audiologist. If you need any referrals to people in your area, please let me know and i will gladly refer you.
