Dear doctor,

I am hearing ringing sounds in the ear. It is three weeks now. I consulted a doctor and he said that everything looks normal but gave me Neomycin and I still have the ringing.

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

I understand your concern regarding ringing sounds in the ear or tinnitus.

This can occur due to varied reasons like:

  • Oldage.
  • Noise exposure.
  • Blood pressure medicines.
  • Local diseases in the ear.

It can occur without a known cause too.

I would advise you to get an audiometric testing done and share the report with me.

Avoid exposure to any loud noises.

If it is disturbing your sleep, use a high-speed fan or clock to mask the sounds.

Try not to concentrate on the sounds and you could take an anti-anxiety drug, after consulting your physician.

Hope these measures would help.
