Ringing in ears? Should I? - June 28th 2012, 11:32 PM

Okay, for as long as I can remember (yes, even as a child) I've had ringing in both my ears, I have no hearing issues but sometimes it becomes annoying as hell and I can't stand it.

It horrible and I hate it. Should I see a doctor about that? I'm going to the doctors on July 13th for a physical and another issue, but the issue isn't for my ear...

Should I tell my doctor, that I have ringing in my ears? I mean I checked the "Yes" box on the new patient form thingy for health problems/issues and I checked "Yes" when they asked "Do you have ringing in the ear?"

I mean I'm going to a new doctor and when I go will he check out my medical records and will he also look at the medical history check list that I filled out when I signed the forms and stuff? I'm not really sure.

I would get it checked out by the doctor. The only reason I can think of is sometimes if you constantly listen to loud music through headphones or something like that you can get ringing in your ears. If that is not the case, then I would get it checked out xx

I even had this as a child and of course I thought it was normal to have ringing in the ears, but apparently it's not.

When I younger, I never listen to loud music at all by ear phones and I was like 6 too so back then 6 year old never had ipods then.

The fancy medical lingo for "ringing in your ears" is tinnitus. It varies from person-to-person, some have it randomly, others have it in only 1 ear, some may have hearing difficulties, etc... . Unfortunately, there are many, many potential causes for tinnitus and one of them is loud sounds. Another one is sounds that aren't very loud but last for a long time. These are the two causes doctors will initially ask about because they're the easiest to treat, however, it could be almost anything else. Since you had it when you were a child, it's quite possible you had (and maybe still have) chronic bacterial otitis media or repeated cases of acute bacterial otitis media. These can only be determined by the doctor using an otoscope or bringing you to a clinical audiologist for hearing tests, although the latter is less common and often more expensive.

Often ringing sound in era is a symptom of tinnitus. Though this is not a disease, it can cause neurological damages or hearing loss. So it is advisable to consult your doctor and get treatment.

Yes, you should go to the doctors. The ringing in ear may cause deaf as I know. Just a few times, I have such a phenomenon, so no big deal for me. But it's really not good to bear it if the ringing lasts long.
