Hi Soetiono,


Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.

Ringing in the ears (tinnitus) there are many possible causes, one of the most common is exposure to excessive noise in the ears, for example due to the habit of using hands-free to listen to music. In addition, the following factors can also trigger tinnitus:

aging
Cerumen impacta (earwax buildup)
Otitis media (inflammation of the middle ear)
Otitis externa (inflammation of the outer ear)
Meniere's disease
Head or neck injury
Inner ear damage
Hypertension
Atherosclerosis
Somatoform disorders
Drug side effects, and so on

Disorders of nerve function, including those that play a role in hearing function can also be one of the triggers (but not the only one). As for one of the vitamins that are important to nourish the nerves are vitamin B1, B6, and vitamin B12. Therefore, a deficiency in this vitamin can also indirectly trigger tinnitus.


A thorough examination is needed, not only from the ENT aspect, but also the overall health condition to find out the possible causes of the complaints you are experiencing. Often, the process of determining the cause of tinnitus diagnosis cannot be done in a short time. Therefore, if you have visited the doctor several times, but there is no improvement, you should return to an ENT specialist. If necessary, the doctor will perform a series of supporting tests, ranging from hearing tests, x-rays, or CT scans.


Currently, you can take the following steps to prevent tinnitus from recurring and recurring:

Avoid excessive noise exposure
Don't scratch your ears too much
Keep your ears dry
Avoid indiscriminate consumption of drugs, especially drugs that are ototoxic
Stay away from cigarettes, alcohol, and excessive stress

The last point but no less important than the series of efforts above is, check your ear health regularly every 6 months to an ENT specialist.


Hope it helps ya..
