Buzzing in ears
Feb 26, 2001

Dear Dr.,

I have noticed that since my HIV infection last year I have this constant ringing and buzzing in my ears. Do you know why HIV causes this? Is there a cure? Is this common to HIV?

Response from Dr. Bartlett

Are you taking any medications, including aspirin or over the counter medications that could contain aspirin? If the answer is no, ringing in the ears is not a common symptom of HIV or its complications and I would suggest consulting with an ear, nose and throat physician.
