To stop ringing ears, it’s important to know what’s causing the problem. Unfortunately, this is a difficult diagnosis to make, as there are many potential causes of ringing ears, or in extreme cases, Tinnitus. These noises may appear either in the ears, or the head itself. For some, the noise they hear is a real noise, that can actually be registered on special instruments. For others, hearing noises in the ears is the result of hearing loss related to that pitch. Look at your situation, and try to determine what might be causing your tinnitus.
