Re: Persistent ringing in ears after vipassana

I just attended a 10 day retreat.  On day five I developed a horrible ringing in my ears and it is still with me a week later.  I don't know what I did or what happened.  Has anybody heard of this before?  I think I am going insane the technique is only making it worse.  Any insight anyone has would be much appreciated.


Hello Brian,

I have suffered with tinitus for a long time and the brain has a miraculous way of tuning it out. It just becomes background noise that you do not notice until you are still and present.

It could be that you had a mild / certain tone of tinitus that you have never noticed and from practicing Vipassana and becoming deeply aware you now notice it.

I wish you all the best.
