When someone is experiencing ringing in their ears, it can be a subtle yet pervasive annoyance. No one likes to sit down for some quiet time and hear noise. It can be especially worrying when it signifies a medical problem. The person wonders, will this lead to a permanent condition called Tinnitus
Thankfully, not all instances of this are permanent. But when it is Tinnitus, unfortunately it is.
There are things that a person can do to reduce their risk of developing Tinnitus. One of these is to do with avoiding situations with loud noises
without the use of proper ear protection. There are noise cancelling headphones that must be purchased if one needs to work in such conditions.
Another has to do with how loud a person puts their personal head phones. It is best to keep it at a safe level rather than blare the music loudly. People who really care about their hearing should avoid concerts. If there is a band one must see, then do not go up to the loud speakers. Also, consider wearing discrete ear plugs to cancel out some of the decibels.
