Sometimes my head will start hurting like a dull headache

Resolved Question:

I have been hearing this ringing in my head that sounds like crickets chirpping away at night. The problem is that I hear it all day long even when I am just waking up in the morning. Sometimes my head will start hurting like a dull headache when the noise is really pronounced. Would this have anything to do with high blood pressure or ADHD? Should I be concerned about this noise.

The constant & steady ringing in the ears is called tinnitus.

There are many causes for tinnitus , but some times no cause can be evident also.

High blood pressure may be a causative factor.

The causes may be -exposure to loud sound, ear wax, stiffening of bones of the ear or otosclerosis.

There may be vascular causes like high blood pressure, any blood vessel malformation, or any abnormal flow of blood may lead to this feeling.

You need to consult an ENT specialist to have an examination of your ear.

I hope this information will be helpful.

Please ask if you need any clarification.

Thank you.
