Ringing of the ears

It is a medical condition called "tinnitus". It can be caused by listening to loud music or noises, but it can just happen without obvious cause. Don't wear headphones loud and don't go to loud concerts, go to an ear specialist and have it checked out to rule out any pathology. Often it comes and goes by itself, but if it has no pathalogical reason then there is no cure other than masking it with other noise like the tv or radio. BTA About tinnitus

Many people experience an occasional ringing (or roaring, hissing, buzzing, or tinkling) in their ears. The sound usually lasts only a few minutes. Ringing in the ears that does not get better or go away is called tinnitus.----------------------------------------------------------------------------

What is the problem with loud noise when it comes to ears? Can it really do damage or is that just a story made up by people who hate loud music?

It’s actually been medically proven that prolonged
exposure to loud music and loud sounds can damage hearing in the long run.
Obviously trauma to the ear from something like an explosion can cause
immediate hearing loss, but music etc is more likely to cause a slow

It’s highly recommended to use ear protection when
engaging in very loud level activities such as mowing the lawn.
A study has also shown that listening to music while
exercising can cause further damage to hearing as the blood flow during
exercise is diverted from our ears to our arms, legs and heart – making the
ears more vulnerable to noise.

Try this site:

Many sufferers make use of self-help treatments such as:
  • Maskingthe tinnitus with competing sounds, such as low music (using personalheadphones) clocks, or other noises such as ‘white noise’ generators.This makes it easier to ignore the tinnitus, help concentration andsleep.
  • Useof hearing aids for hearing loss - being able to hear sounds you cannotnormally hear may help override the tinnitus noise
  • Cognitive behaviour therapy can help people to change their response and lower their awareness of tinnitus.
  • Deliberately trying to concentrate on something else and to ignore the tinnitus
  • Stress management - stress and fatigue can make the condition worse.
  • Avoidance of alcohol, nicotine, caffeine, and certain foods that are known to aggravate tinnitus.
  • Use of earplugs, earmuffs and avoiding loud noise to limit further damage to the ears.
We are actually not supposed to provide medical/legal advice on this site, but I just thought this may help you. Hope it does :)
