Ringing or buzzing in the ears is far from normal. We’ve had patients who’ve ignored tinnitus, which can be a symptom of a serious ear condition that needs to be addressed. The sounds may be coming from one ear or both and most of the time it starts gradually. Tinnitus is not a disease but a symptom. It can be caused by an ear infection, exposure to certain medicines or ear conditions like Meniere’s disease. One way to avoid this symptom is to stay away from loud noises.
When you come into our Panama City office, our ENT will ask you a number of questions to better understand your condition and offer an accurate diagnosis. Pay us a visit and put a stop to those unwanted noises in your ears.
