Is there anything that will stop ringing in the ears?

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you been dealing with the ear issue? Have you had any colds or flus recently?

This has been going on for many years. I have no hearing problem.

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

I also have heavy pressure in my head--mainly my temples.

Dear customer

Thank you for being online.

Ringing & buzzing in ears is medically termed as a condition called tinnitus.The most common cause of this is damage to the microscopic endings of the hearing nerve in the inner ear.Other causes are:hearing nerve impairment due to advanced age,wax buildup or foreign objects in the ear canal, ear or sinus infections,exposure to loud noise,diseases of the central nervous system.

In many cases,it may simply go away on its own.Otherwise treatment includes anti-anxiety drugs and antidepressants,antihistamines, anticonvulsants,Tinnitus retraining therapy (TRT).Treatment with low doses of anti-anxiety drugs such as Valium or antidepressants such as Elavil help reduce tinnitus.

So my best advise for you is to please consult your ENT doctor for the best treatment option accordingly to reduce/stop ringing in ears.

Thank you.

Hope this helped

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
