Dear customer

Thank you for being online.

The symptoms you have described of having occasional ringing in ears since last 3 weeks along with dizziness 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,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).

The exact diagnosis can only be made after physical examination & tests.

So my best advise for you is to please make an appointment with your ENT doctor to have the tests & examination done so as to know the exact underlying cause of this ringing & then treatment will be done accordingly.

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.
