Ear ringing

Ear ringing

Together with other abnormal ear noises, ear ringing is medically called tinnitis. Tinnitus can arise in any of the four sections of the ear: the outer ear, the middle ear, the inner ear, and the brain. If tinnitus persists and its cause is unknown, a hearing test (audiogram)should be done. Measures can be taken to lessen the intensity oftinnitus.
