I was exposed to a loud noise (gunshot). Since then, I have a static noise in my ears when it is really quiet, and I get a pressure at the back of my head that often turns into a headache. Sometimes, I also get a tone in my right ear. If I do some physical activity, I may have dizziness. This has been going on for six weeks now. I have been to an ENT and did various tests (attached). None are showing hearing loss, and since the tests are clean the ENT cannot determine what is wrong.

Thank you doctor,
I have seen 2 ENTs. They both checked my ears and said that everything looks good, and eardrum looks healthy. I am scheduled for an MRI soon. In a quiet environment, it is like static. Imagine sitting in a very loud place like a dance club or bar, and then suddenly all the sound is turned off. You will have this sort of static in your ears that typically goes away after some time. That is what I have. This sound is also triggered when the back of my head is resting on something soft, like the back of the couch or a pillow. There is also a very soft tone that I hear in my right ear. This will come and go, but it is so soft that again I can only hear it in quiet environments. It may get louder depending on the stress or if I was exposed to some loud noise. I do not get headaches from bending. I also do not get vertigo. There is no facial pressure or pain, post nasal drip, decreased sense of smell, ear discharge or thick nasal discharge. I have had acid reflux before, but it has not been an issue recently. My hearing is good. On some days, I have a little fullness in the right ear. It feels a bit like the fullness you get on an airplane. It typically goes away after few hours.
