What causes ringing in the ears?

Sometimes, when it’s fairly quiet, I start to hear a loud continuous “Beeeeeeeep” in my ears. Sometimes, to make it go away I just find something to take my mind off of it, so I won’t pay attention to it. Sometimes, that doesn’t work. Sometimes I can’t get rid of it for a while, and it gives me a headache.

Why does this happen?

Answer #1

Its called tinnitus, and its usually your brain bing aware of sounds in your own body. Like when you hear the ocean in a seashell. But since its within your own ear, you hear the real noise, not the modified one in the seashell.

Answer #2

there are so many so many different myths about that…not sure what to believe anymore…but my mom says its when someone is talking about you! Idk…my mom is superstitious that way.

hope it stops & you feel better. ♥
