My ears have been buzzing for quite a long time and are really annoying, just when I was examined by an ENT doctor and then endoscoped, but the ears were clean. Guess what causes it?

Hello Inayah Wildati,


Ringing or tinnitus is a ringing in the ear that is felt by the patient. Usually occurs in one ear only. Tinnitus is a symptom that can occur in abnormalities of the inner ear, impaired hearing function (hearing loss) due to old age, trauma to the ear, accumulation of earwax or disruption in blood circulation. In addition there are also other diseases that can be the cause of the onset of tinnitus, namely:

Meniere's disease
Temporomandibular joint disorder
Acoustic neuroma
Disorders of the Eustachian tube (the tube that connects the middle ear with the nasopharynx / area behind the nose and larynx)
Head trauma
Hypertension
Atherosclerosis

Tinnitus that must be wary of is that which appears continuously so that it interferes with your activity and even interferes with your sleep, tinnitus accompanied by impaired balance, tinnitus that persists> 7 days, tinnitus with decreased hearing function. In such tinnitus conditions further examination is needed. The initial examination can be done with an ENT specialist, the examination aims to evaluate the ear area, balance test, and hearing function test. Are complaints of tinnitus arising from abnormalities in the ear, if there are no abnormalities in the ear, it may be necessary to suspect an abnormality outside the ear that causes tinnitus. Other investigations such as MRI or CT-scan may be needed.


Treatment will generally be tailored to the underlying cause. We recommend that you re-control with the ENT doctor who checks so that there are no changes in symptoms after drug administration. If it is suspected that abnormalities outside the ENT system it can be advisable to see a neurologist. Some aids such as masking devices (sounding ringing), hearing aids, applications that make sounds like waves / rain to divert ringing sounds, might help reduce complaints of tinnitus. It also requires appropriate drug therapy in accordance with the abnormalities found. Thus the explanation from me, hopefully useful.
