Ringing In The Ears
by Neil Bauman, Ph.D.
A lot of people say they hear “noise” in their ears, or that their ears are “ringing.” One lady wrote, “I’ve not seen much on how to deal with the constant noise in my ears. It has gone way beyond the ringing I so often see mentioned.”
That ringing sound, called tinnitus, is more of a stereotypical sound than a reality. I say my ears are “ringing,” but what I really hear is a high-pitched whine, or a low-pitched rumbling sound. Some people hear “crickets.” One person described hers as sounding like someone pounding on a piece of sheet metal.
The truth is, tinnitus has many different sounds. Tinnitus may be a ringing, roaring, rushing, beating, clicking, banging, buzzing, hissing, humming, chirping, clanging, sizzling, whooshing, rumbling, whistling or dreadful shrieking noise in our ears. To some people, tinnitus sounds like rushing water, breaking glass or chain saws running. All these numerous sounds come under the generalized heading of “ringing” or tinnitus.

However, if you are really serious about alleviating or eliminating your tinnitus, you need the specialized information contained in the book, “When Your Ears Ring–Cope with Your Tinnitus–Here’s How.” You can get a copy at http://www.hearinglosshelp.com/products/books.htm#tinnitus .
