Brief Answer:
Take treatment as advised

Detailed Answer:

Hello,

You are having tinnitus. You should get examined for any hearing loss or ear discharge. Blood pressure should be measured and if raised should be controlled.

Drugs like Amitriptyline can be taken for symptomatic relief.

Hope you found the answer helpful.

I do not feel any nausea / headache / dizzy / anything else. I wanted to know if this is curable at all and if so then what are kinds of treatments options available ? Thanks in advance.
