The Cause Of Buzzing Ears That Never Goes Away?
want to ask, my ears were ringing and then an audiometric test was done. The doctor said that everything was normal. It’s been regularly done ear cleaning. But the ringing doesn’t go away. Why?
Thank you for the question.
The annoying buzzing in the ear (tinnitus) can not only be caused by accumulation of earwax. This condition can also occur for other reasons, for example aging, exposure to excessive noise, otosclerosis, inflammation of the ear, Meniere's disease, Eustachian tube dysfunction, acoustic neuroma, to muscle spasms in the inner ear. Disorders of organ systems outside the ear, for example atherosclerosis, hypertension, brain and neck tumors, malformations of blood vessels in the head or neck, disorders of the jaw joints, as well as head or neck injuries, can also cause tinnitus. In addition, several types of drugs, such as erythromycin, polymyxin B, cancer drugs, diuretics, quinin, antidepressants, and aspirin, if taken long term, often also trigger tinnitus.
There are many causes of tinnitus, and each of these conditions can be treated differently. Therefore, even though it has been checked and treated, if your condition has not improved, we recommend that you check yourself again to the doctor or ENT doctor. Later, your doctor may also direct you to undergo a radiological examination, such as a CT scan and MRI before providing definitive treatment.
In the meantime, you should get plenty of rest first, avoid prying your ears with any instrument, make sure your ears stay dry and don't get in by insects or other foreign matter. You also need to avoid excessive exposure to noise, increase rest, and do not take any medication without the advice of a doctor.
Hope this helps ...
