Dear Marrianne

What you are referring to is called Tinnitus. There are a number of possible causes and it is important to get to the root of the problem. To name a few: blood pressure, hearing loss, certain medication, noise exposure, vitamin deficiencies, smoking drinking, stress etc.

The best is to start with a good general check-up at your GP. He or she will be able to refer you to an Ear, Nose and Throat Specialist if necessary. The next step is to have your hearing evaluated by an Audiologist - if you don't know of someone in your area, please let me know and i will gladly give you the necessary contact detail (izabellepieterse@gmail.com).

In the meantime make sure that you get enough rest, have a healthy diet and avoid spending time in complete quiet.

Please let me know if you need any further detail

Kind regards
