This ringing sound can only be heard by the sufferer and often disturbs the sufferer because he constantly hears the sound and interferes with hearing. Usually caused by aging, due to inner ear disorders where there is damage to the process of transmitting sound to the nerves and brain, accumulation of wax in the ear, middle ear infection, high blood pressure.
Vertigo is a spinning sensation or feeling like the environment is spinning and is caused by a disturbance in the balance system. Vertigo that often is vertigo due to disturbances in the balance system located in the inner ear. One type of vertigo is Meniere's disease where one of the symptoms is tinnitus.
It can be said that your ringing ears can be caused by one of them due to a buildup of wax in the ear. And ringing in the ears does not trigger vertigo, but ringing in the ears is one of the characteristics of vertigo, namely Meniere's disease. If indeed there is a buildup of dirt then you can consult a doctor for cleaning. However, if after cleaning the earwax and ear wax still ringing in the long term, and you experience dizziness, nausea, vomiting, hearing loss, and frequent colds, it is best if you consult an ENT doctor so that the doctor can perform further examinations. Meanwhile, avoid picking the ear and avoid the entry of water in the ear.
