Hearing loss and ringing in the ears can be caused by many different factors. Being exposed to a very loud and sudden noise with no ear protection can explain short term noise in the ears that goes away in a few minutes or hours. Constant, buzzing or ringing in the ears without an external factor can be caused by a wealth of different things. These can be unknown causes, wax buildup, ear infections, blood flow changes such as anemia and high blood pressure, Meniere’s Disease, Temporomandibular Joint Disorder aka TMD or TMJ.
Other causes are Otosclerosis, an unusual bone growth in middle ear, head injuries such as concussions, neck injuries like whiplash and Cervical Spine injury (C-Spine injury), Eustachian Tube dysfunction, Ototoxic medications like aspirin, ruptured eardrum, smoking and exposure to loud noises.
