Hearing a buzzing, or other odd noises in the ear. People who suffer from vertigo also often hear a strange buzzing or whirring noise in the ear. Depending on what is causing the symptoms, this noise can vary. Some people hear a hissing noise that is continuous, whereas other people hear a flutter or a click, or even a whistle. The pitch experienced can be high or low and the noise can vary in frequency or sometimes even be continuous. It is exceedingly difficult to deal with and can be very distracting from the activities of everyday life. It is not a symptom to be ignored as it is associated with a loss of hearing.
