Hello doctor,

I have noticed that when I am alone in a closed room or studying, I hear some sound. My father used to say this is because of wax in the ear, but when my ears are clean, I still hear the sound. I am sure that my hearing is fine. Could this be the sound of blood circulation? Is it normal to hear a little sound in a closed room?

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

This is called tinnitus, and there are many reasons for it. Some of the reasons are an infection of the middle and external ear, otosclerosis, sensorineural hearing loss, glue ear, anatomical variations of the vessels, etc.

First, we need to examine your ears and do an audiogram, then only we can come to a diagnosis.

Thank you doctor,

A few years back, I got an audiogram done, and it was normal. Should I do it again?
