Constant ringing in the ears is a trial. Will it ever end? There is good news!

If you have ever experienced or are experiencing tinnitus that lasts for more than a day, you are not alone. Asking, “Will my tinnitus go away?” is a common question. Tinnitus has many different possible causes, and getting to the real cause will help you know how to proceed. Fear not! In many cases, your tinnitus will likely clear up on its own. If it is not, Clarity Audiology in Baltimore is here for your hearing needs.

Your Tinnitus Will Likely Go Away

In most cases, tinnitus can and will go away on its own. The time that it lasts varies per person. Sometimes, it might just be a passing moment, but other times, it could last for days or even several months. 

For a small percentage of people, the ringing in the ears is constant and can even worsen. However, there are ways to deal with it and improve it. 

Overall, expect your tinnitus to go away with time, especially after you have removed its cause and care for your health proactively.

Potential Causes of Tinnitus

That ringing, buzzing, or clicking in the ears can have multiple causes stemming from any part of the ear. 

It could be conductive, meaning that an ear blockage is the culprit. For some, removing built-up earwax is all it takes for the ringing to stop.

It could also have to do with the Eustachian tube; Eustachian tube dysfunction (ETD) could result in both tinnitus and increased ear pressure.

A prevalent reason is noise-induced hearing loss. If you were exposed to high-decibel sounds, it could temporarily injure your ears. Repeated exposure would lead to permanent tinnitus, so do your best to eliminate these triggers.

Some medications, including large daily doses of aspirin, can cause tinnitus. It may stop once you stop taking the medication.

Tinnitus could also be a sign of aging; the tinnitus could be due to a fault in the cochlea or the auditory nerve connecting the inner ear to the brain.

Next Steps

If your tinnitus is permanent, there is still hope. No matter your case, the best advice is to rest, eat well, and relax. Include nerve-repairing foods in your diet. Using white noise can help mask the tinnitus, but you want to avoid exposing your ears to more constant sound if it is noise-induced. If the tinnitus worsens and persists, visit us at Clarity Audiology. Once again, in most cases, you can expect it to go away.
