Constant Ear Buzzing

Updated on August 25, 2010

Constant Ear Buzzing

Are you always hearing a sound in your ear when there is no other noise to contend with it? If so, your condition could be known as tinnitus. I’ve heard stories of women who’ve never had tinnitus before after having children, would be lying still and all of a sudden hear their child’s “cries” in their head. In the case that I’m thinking of, the sounds didn’t last long, just long enough for her to jump out of bed and realize that she was “hearing things.” While I’m not sure if that is a true symptom of tinnitus, constant ear buzzing is definitely one of the more sure and common symptoms. More than a disease, tinnitus is called a phantom sound. Why? It’s called that because it keeps you wondering is it’s really there or not. The common question from people who have experienced tinnitus is am I really hearing this or is it all in my head. In the case of the mother hearing her babies cries, she never thought much of it simply because she’d just become a mom and figured, in her words, that her brain had recorded her babies voice and it just plays it back from time to time. Believe it or not, her perspective was close to the actual truth and description of what tinnitus really is. In the absence of outward noise or noise from the outside, sufferers of tinnitus hear noise from the inside or from the inner ear.  When the outside noises out weigh the noises from the inside tinnitus sufferers feel some relief although the constant ear buzzing is still present in the inner ear.

Constant Ear Buzzing

 

Constant buzzing in the ear does require professional attention simply because tinnitus is associated with hearing loss. So beyond being plain annoying, it can also be a sign of something worse to come. As with all medical issues, the earlier you receive medical attention, the better your chances are of avoiding or at the very least, preparing for any issues to comes. Constant ear buzzing is also a common side effect of some medications. That is the place you should start, if you are taking medications, to find the source of the buzzing sound. Be sure to let your doctor know what if any medications you are taking so that they can be ruled out as a possible source of your discomfort. At the end of the day, everyone hears a ringing noise or buzzing sound or hissing, clicking or roaring sound from time to time. Some people describe it as the sound the older televisions used to make when you turn them. It is not the every now and then ringing or buzzing or tones that you hear that should concern you. It is only if you hear this constant ear buzzing or ringing none stop and especially if it is getting louder and louder and in some cases interfering with your sleep should you get concerned and see your physician.

      Dear praveen000,

      An interesting article on tinnitus. As you know there is little conventional medicine can do, but there are several natural remedies which can offer some relief.

      Kind regards Peter
