Dear Rennel

The sound that you are hearing is called Tinnitus and there are a number of causes for it. To name a few; blood pressure, hearing loss, certain medication, noise exposure, specific diseases, smoking, drinking etc. What is important though is to get to the root of the problem. If the tinnitus is just in one ear, please make an appoinment to see an Ear, Nose and Throat specialist as soon as possible. If it is in both ears, you can start with a general check-up by your GP. I would also stronly advise that you have your hearing evaluated by an Audiologist. If you need any referrals to someone in your area, please let me know (izabellepieterse@gmail.com)
