Why Do I Hear Ringing in My Ears?

“Why do I hear ringing in my ears?” This question is always your concern when you realize that you hear noise that no one else hears.

There are a few reasons why you may be suffering from a buzzing in ears or ringing in ears. This is known as tinnitus and it is becoming very common nowadays mainly because of lifestyle reasons.

There are quite a few causes of tinnitus as there are several manifestations that trigger the ringing of ears. There are times when stress becomes the main culprit in the entire catastrophe that you may seem to experience right now.

Some medications are also to blame as one of the causes of ear ringing although they are not chronic in nature, meaning you do not have to have it forever. Also bear in mind that this is a symptom, so there is definitely an underlying trouble hovering behind it.

Here are some causes of tinnitus (ringing in ear) that are usually adding to the buzzing of your ears:

Subjective tinnitus

Subjective tinnitus is caused by loud noise around you.

Have you ever wondered why it is subjective? This nature is often taking place in your mind or you are making it happen due to  wrongdoing or lifestyle. For example is exposing yourself to loud noises, which you can control but simply ignore. The usual people who suffer from subjective hearing loss due to Tinnitus are those who work as construction workers and use power tools with or without protective gadgets such as earplugs.

You could also decrease your normal hearing levels if you belong to the music industry. If you are working in events wherein your client is a rock star, you will be engaged in decibel levels way beyond what your ears can handle, so at the end of the day, you head home with a serious ringing in your ears. The more you are exposed to this the more long term damage will be caused.

The ringing and buzzing sound can also come via an external ear infection, an acoustic shock that happened during your sound check process or when you accidentally set the volume to ultra high.

Objective tinnitus

When you say objective tinnitus, this may refer to muscle spasms in the ear also known as pulsatile tinnitus. This is confirmed by your doctor when he says that he can hear or he believes he hears a noise from your ears.

This is all about an altered flow of blood. There are cases when the “Oh it’s just nothing” mentality that most patients have when they begin to feel something unexplainable is happening to them, can actually be a life-threatening disease.

Whatever the cause of the ringing in your ears as long as you address the problem as soon as possible , you have the greater chance of curing it yourself. This illness has lead many people to commit suicide so you can see the extent to which this problem can have a profound impact on your life and that of your family.
