Detailed Answer:
Hello XXXXXXX

Thanks for posting a query,

The symptom you are suffering from is called as tinnitus. There are many causes of it. The main cause being excess wax, inner ear cell damage, or any inner ear bone changes. I suggest you to consult an ENT specialist immediately to confirm the diagnosis.

Any query do follow up and keep me updated.
