A hearing condition that is often ignored as a real hearing condition is tinnitus. Tinnitus can also be referred to as the loud ringing you hear after being exposed to loud music or loud noises, for example, gun shots that go off or exposure to loud noises in industrial environments. The ringing is caused due to the damaging of microscopic endings of the nerves in the inner ear.


Although the most helpful routine to stop ringing in your ears is prevention, there are steps that you can take to treat tinnitus:

  1. Skull Thumping
  2. Cover your ears with your palms, fingers pointed back and resting on the skull.
  3. Rest your index fingers on top of your middle fingers.
  4. Using a snapping motion, flip your index fingers down off your middle fingers and onto the back of the skull. Continue with this motion until desired results are achieved.
  5. Wait it out


Tinnitus is caused by exposure to excessive loud noise, and 90% of the time takes care of itself by disappearing after a few hours. Should the symptoms last for more than 24 hours, always seek advice from a health care professional.

  • Find the root of the problem


Often Tinnitus is caused as a symptom of another hearing impairment. The conditions are usually treatable. Underlying issues can include:

  • Presence of excessive earwax.
  • Blood vessel conditions, such as impaired blood circulation may make tinnitus worse.
  • Have your doctor re-examine the interactions of your medications
