What causes ringing in ears?

I really don t know how to explain my problem. My left ear has been having issues for a couple months. It died not hurt it just is an anoyance. It is like ringing but enstead of the ring I hear (what sounds to me) my own heart beat. At times it is so loud that it is affecting my hearing. Is there anything I can do. It is hard to concentrate on my normal life activities. It all started while I was deployed to Iraq.

Hello,

It could be a tinnitus. As a first line management you can take drugs like Betahistine for symptomatic relief. If symptoms persist better to consult ENT specialist and get evaluated.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Wishing you all the best. Thank you.

Regards,
