From this study (1 year ago):
I've had a hissing sound for approx. 10 years (seems like forever) Checked with doctor a few times because I was thinking it could be lipitor. He says no, so I took myself off of it (probably 6 yrs ago) for two weeks. No change, so I continued to take it. My dosage has been the same from the start. I also
have a feeling of pressure and a cracking or popping feeling that fluctuates,
but never goes away. I was checked for ear infections off and on and the doctor
says no. Often (especially at night) the pressure and hissing cause me to "panic" where I have to calm myself down by doing something that can distract me from hearing the hissing. Bottom line, doctor says no, that some have this problem. Thank you for "listening".

I had the same symptoms but did not take your medication. I went to an ENT and was diagnosed with Meniere's disease. I thought I was going crazy as the sound made me feel out of control and panicky. If you have not been to an ENT, it would probably be a good idea to see one. It could even be tinnitus. Good luck!
