What causes ringing in ears which is commonly referred to as tinnitus can be many reasons some known and many unknown but it is thought to be a symptom of something that is wrong in your body. Usually this ringing in ears affects both ears but sometimes there can be ringing in one ear only. There are also other sounds that can be produced but ringing is the most common. There can be a swishing noise in ear, roaring, clicking, humming, whistling, etc.
The common causes of ringing in one ear only include but are not limited to;
1. Head and Neck Injuries
Hearing loss or other problems with hearing is one of the most common identified risk factor for the development of tinnitus. The functioning of the ears is enabled by a complex set of nerves and brain functions that enable hearing. When you suffer a head or neck injury or trauma, it can affect the inner ear, brain functions that are tied to hearing as well as hearing nerves. These types of injuries or trauma can lead to ringing in one ear only.
2. Capillaries Malformation
Blood vessels (capillaries) can be malformed through a condition that is known as arteriovenous malformation (AVM). With this condition, the connections between arteries and veins is malformed which can result in tinnitus that affects one ear only. This is one of the causes of pulsatile tinnitus which usually results from the various types of blood vessel disorders including AVM.
Pulsatile tinnitus also known as objective tinnitus can produce noises that can be heard by another individual besides the sufferer such as a doctor using special hearing device. Pulsatile tinnitus makes up only about 4 percent of total tinnitus cases. Most types of tinnitus are subjective meaning that only the sufferer is able to hear these phantom noises.
3. Acoustic Neuroma or Vestibula Schwannoma
The cranial nerve runs from the brain to the inner ear and is responsible for balance as well as hearing. This condition represents a benign (non cancerous) growth or tumor that develops on this cranial nerve which can affect balance and/or hearing and result in tinnitus that usually affects one ear only.
