    Can't say I have ever heard (no pun intended) of this.

    Can you explain? What do you mean by ringing?


    Do not try and bend the spoon. That's impossible. Instead... only realize the truth. There is no spoon. Then you'll see that it is not the spoon that bends, it is only yourself. -Spoon Boy

    It depends on the source.

    If it is unbearably excessive, there are ways to cancel out the ringing and make it inaudible.

    Ear ringing can happen from carbon monoxide poisoning, and if you have something loud, or something like a computer fan that emits a CONTINUAL ANNOYING AS HELL RINGING SOUND *glares at the soon-to-be-replaced PC fan*, it will leave a ringing noise. When going deaf people have also reported this symptom. I suggest making sure you don't have carbon monoxide poisoning, a loud ringing computer fan, etc.

    *Breaths in Carbon Monoxide while lighting a piece of dynamite*

    aaah that's what your talking about.

    Just Kidding!!

    Still can't say I know what you're talking about (wait, I just did :?). What does this ringing sound like? Is it like a bell or something? Or is it (does it sound like) an echo?

    i get the occasional ear ringing, very occasional.

    like a very high pitch and constant sound that blocks out other sounds.

    Is it like the sound of electronics when they are turned on before your brain stops registering the sound. That high pitched noise (usually from the TV).

    Or, in TCM, we might call that a deficiency of Kidney Qi.

    My sister developed something called tinnitus after standing too close to a loud speaker at a concert once. It's when part of the inner ear is damaged so it sends signals to the brain telling it that it's hearing sound when it's really not. It can be treated but not cured. You should look into that and see if the symptoms match yours. If you're just hearing the occasional ringing it's probably no big deal.

    The answer is plainly 99% NO

    All you can do is learn to 'ignore' it for example if you listen to a piece of orchestral music it is possible to listen 'particularly' for a particulur instrument, your brain is extremely good at filtering out what it does not need to hear. This is thought to have been developed from the time we were in the jungle, all those noises, many of no consequence but now and again a 'danger' signal. like at a noisy party someone over the other side of the room mentions your name and you hear it, your ears literally 'prick-up' also like walking past a 'sleeping' cat it's ears will prick up at the sound of foot-prints (possible danger) but hardly ever at a car driving past!

    So with time you ignore it, after you have had it for 30-years or so you may find like me that the only time you notice it is when it stops for a few seconds!

    There are a very small number of cases where it can be, curable one such is where it sounds like the noise of 'galloping horses' - Like the Emporer Calligula had (you know him he promoted his horse to some high office), this is where a small blood vessel runs close to the inner ear and transmits vibrations of the individual bloodcells rushing through it.

    Whatever it sounds like you should see a physician/specialist. But don't hold your breath

    If you close your eyes as tight as you can and clench your teeth hard does the noise appear to increase?

    Well, here's some advice from the ancients.

    1. Drink a tea with equal amounts of comfrey, cinnamon, and chamomile.
    2. Rub some sesame oil on the mastiod bone behind your ear twice a day.
    3. 3 drops of garlic oil in your ear at night before bed (-edit- do not try this at home).

    Hope it helps.

    So far as I know about 2% if tinitus victims can be cured through having their ears de-waxed, BUT if you have tinitus this should only be done by a medical practitioner. Apart from that NO! - I indicated some time ago in the thread "what are you listenening to" - I posted "Tinitus" by the ears or something similar.. You get used to it, look it up on the net and you'll see why it cannot be aleviated or cured. What you can do is avoid further damage - keep away from loud noises, our ears simply did not evolve to cope with 120dbmw Car sterios and these jerks who go around with them are gonna regret it in their 40's (or maybe earlier!). The more your hearing deteriorates the louder you turn up the volume and the more damage this does to your ears, it's a vicious circle understand this well and you have some control on how much and fast it will affect you.

    I'll go directly against Dabob on this one DO NOT put anything in your ears unless directed by a physician!

    Haha, thanks Megabrain. I should have said that. It's just I'm known for trying crazy stuff like that and didn't really think to put a warning.

    I you truly caused perminant physical damage to your ear than my tips probably wont do anything. Although they (accept #3) may be worth a try seeing as how they can't harm you. I'm not a physician however.

    I think actually this will make it work, when you get home the next day, your wife will notice the smell, whack you around the head with your high school baseball bat - takes your mind off the ringing for weeks...
