Ringing, Buzzing, Roaring and Hissing
High pitched sounds such as ringing, roaring, hissing and buzzing are common tinnitus symptoms, with low-frequency noise and musical hallucinations also experienced by some people.
If you suffer from tinnitus symptoms and work – or have previously worked – in a loud space, your condition may have been caused by your employment or working environment.
Determining the cause of your tinnitus symptoms
If you think that your job may be to blame for your ringing ear, answer the following questions:
- Is your ringing worse in evenings after work?
- Are you regularly exposed to loud noise at work?
- Do you have to use loud equipment or machinery as part of your employment?
If you have answered ‘yes’ to any of the questions, it is possible that your work or working environment is the cause of your tinnitus.
Regardless of the reason for your ringing ears, we would recommend that you visit your GP in order to get referred to a hearing specialist. They will be able to determine the exact cause of your symptoms and offer you any treatment and medical advice you require.
