Hi Nico

What you are experiencing is tinnitus. This ringing in your ears can be related to many factors including stress, high blood pressure, medication, noise and hearing loss. It is important for you to have a full hearing evaluation done by an audiologist. If necessary she will refer you to an ENT specialist. Tinnitus can be managed it just needs to be evaluated to find the reason. Feel free to contact me on debbiep@widex.co.za if you need a referral to an audiologist in your area.
