Tinnitus presents itself in various ways. Some hear a ringing sound, while others hear whistles or a combination of sounds including hissing, buzzing, music or humming. The main ‘bad’ thing about it is that it’s a distraction, and constant worry.

It’s hard to go about life with a ringing in your head.Ringing Ears? It's Tinnitus.

Tinnitus itself is not a disease, but a non-specific symptom that can be brought on by a change in the mental or physical state, not necessarily related to hearing in the ear or the auditory pathway.
Research shows that most people develop tinnitus after hearing a very loud noise, for a short duration spanning minutes. That is expected, and nothing to worry about.

It’s a problem, however, when the tinnitus persists. If you are one of these people, you need to pay attention to whether your symptoms are worsening to the point where you should get professional care.

Consult with a doctor, who can check for physical causes. The usual culprits are things impacted earwax or Meniere’s disease. More serious problems could be an infection or hole in the ear drum, and in worst cases – a tumor.

In this vein, these are some other measures that could help:
