Ringing Ears Are Characteristic Of A Person?
Good morning, I want to ask to know if someone has a complaint or symptom, what do you think? is there a special form that can be used to assess someone experiencing symptoms or complaints of tinnitus. Or can it only be measured by audiometry? thank you

Tinnitus or ringing in the ears is a symptom of a disease. Tinnitus can appear at any age. Diseases that can cause tinnitus include:
1. Hearing loss due to noise
2. Blockage in the ear canal
3. Meniere's disease
4. Side effects of using drugs
5. The presence of a tumor on the head or neck.
Hypertensive conditions and atherosclerosis can also cause tinnitus.
To diagnose the cause of tinnitus, examination by an ENT specialist is required. The doctor will ask about your tinnitus, as well as other symptoms. Then the doctor will perform an ear examination, either with a tuning fork or audiometry.
Tinnitus treatment varies depending on the cause of the tinnitus. It is necessary to know the correct diagnosis before starting treatment.
