Brief Answer: Tinnitus Detailed Answer: Hello Thanks for the query It looks like you are experiencing something called as tinnitus which is quite common. Most often it is caused by viral infection of the middle ear. Here are my suggestions to you 1. Avoid listening to loud music and ear phones 2.Avoid exposure to cold climate and cold winds. Make sure your ears are covered when you are going out 3. Tab Betahistadine 8mg is usally given for a period of 7 days, to be taken three times daily. It brings down the symptoms.Please discuss this suggestion with your ENT specialist I hope I was of help, if you have any further queries please get back to me Regards
