Why do Ears ring?

Why do ears ring?

Have you ever heard a ringing from your ears, but then you cannot see where the sound could possibly come from? During this incident, you are actually the only one who is hearing it, as it is only happening inside your ears. This is called tinnitus.

Tinnitus is a ringing of the ear that could last a few minutes. No matter what you try to do, the ringing will not go away. This phenomenon actually happens when your ears are injured, or have become over-stimulated. It is like a warning signal that the cells in your ears send to your brain.

Usually, tinnitus happens to people who have been too exposed to loud noises, and did not do anything to protect their ears. Although it can happen only a few times, a constant ringing in the ears can be very disturbing and annoying.

Ringing in the ears, however, is not only caused by too much exposure to loud noise, but it can also happen if the ear has too much wax in it. It is also possible to experience tinnitus if you have an abnormal blood pressure, if you have allergies and ear infections, if you are eating certain types of food, or taking certain medications.

Tinnitus is not to be taken lightly, especially if it happens constantly, because it could be a warning sign for a more serious problem. If you have heard ringing in your ears, and do not do anything to prevent it, you could actually create further damage, since the effects are cumulative. If you do not take care of this problem, you may hearing ringing in your ears more often than you already do.
