Thank you for your query.

1. There is no cause for worry. Tinnitus is not associated with serious disorders in over 99% cases. Tinnitus has a tremendous nuisance value. Almost all people at some point in their lives experience tinnitus.

2. Get our ears examined to rule out any ear wax which is one of the commonest causes of Tinnitus. Also rule out any perforatio of the ear drum. You may also get middle ear pressure checked (Impedance Audiometry or Tympanometry). Also can you share your audiogram here?

3. What is your exposure to occupational noise and loud music / earphones / mobile phones? Exposure to loud noise is also a leading cause for tinnitus.

4. Does your Tinnitus change when you clench your teeth? If so, a dental reference is needed.

5. Nasal congestion is common during pregnancy and may lead to Tinnitus. Take regular steam inhalation.

6.Balloon Sinuplasty is a new option.

7. Kindly let me know the results of your investigations. This will help in suggesting further treatment. I must emphasize that in a vast majority of patients of tinnitus, the cause is never found. However there are further treatment options depending on the type of tinnitus.
