Dear Jab

The sound that you are referring to is called Tinnitus and it has a number of possible causes. A few possibilities are:
hearing loss, noise damage, certain medication, alcohol, smoking, vitamin deficiencies, certain diseases, blood pressure, stress etc. The important thing is to get to the root of the problem. The best is normally to start with a general check up by your GP and also a hearing evaluation by an Audiologist. These professionals will be able to refer you if any further evaluation is needed. A few tips in the meantime is to make sure that you have a healthy diet and lifestyle, get enough rest, avoid stress for long periods and if the tinnitus is very irritating when you are alone or in quiet, then put some background sound on like TV or Radio.

Please let me know if you need any further information or a referral to an Audiologist in your area (izabelle@widex.co.za)
