Tinnitus in ears
I was diagnosed with hearing loss a couple of years ago - I think due to shooting without hearing protection. As a result I have a constant ringing in my ears, but lately it seems to get worse - is there something I can do to reduce this?

Hi Looch,

It is possible that the biggest cause of the tinnitus in your case is the loss of hearing, in which case amplification
(hearing aids ) would be able to sort out the tinnitus for you.

There are also some natural remedies available to help with the tinnitus but the success of these remedies is debatable.

You can ask your specialist regarding these remedies and medication available. I would advise that you consult with your hearing care professional to look into amplification.
