I have ringing in the ears (tinnitus)....

constantly but can pretty much ignore it during the day. At night when I lay down to go to sleep is the worse. I can't sleep with the TV or radio on, so those aren't an option. Does anybody have any other suggestions?

  • See an audiologist. Often tinnitus happens because of a hearing loss and the brain "invents" the noise that would normally be heard. It can also be a side effect of some medications. I understand there are homeopathic remedies, but I don't know much about them. Good luck!

  • What is the cause of the ringing? I had ringing at night too & found out that I had high blood pressure causing it. I take medication now & my blood pressure is perfect & no more ringing. If it is caused by loud music then you could try buying a sound machine with "white noise" like wind. Dex baby products makes one that I use in my Sons bedroom. But you should see your Doctor.

  • Yes, live with anemia and do take supplements to help and my doctor sayd that that can cause it. I don't have high blood pressure. Like right now, my ears are ringing off the hook.

  • You have to find the reason for the ringing in your ears first - By going to your doctor. In the mean time you can read this article, maybe it will help... http://ezinearticles.com/?Tinnitus-Medication---Are-There-Medications-For-Tinnitus-and-Do-They-Work?&id=4777737
