Brief Answer:
Reduce irritants switch to noise baskers

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Do you have any other symptoms like weakness, vomiting, headache or hearing difficulty. IF not this seems to be a new symptom. Age related changes in the ear can cause this.

Generally loud noise, coffee, nicotine, alcohol and new medications cause new symptom of ringing in the ears. Avoid them first. A soft music or radio or infact a table fan sounds can bask the ringing sound in the ears, you can try them.

Generally antianxiety medications help in low dose.

Let me know if you have anything to share.
