Tinnitus is an annoying issue for many people, especially those who listen to loud music. If you have ringing in your ears that drives you crazy, there are a few ways to help reduce your symptoms. The tips that follow are all designed to help you manage those troublesome sounds in your ears.

Before seeing your hypnotherapist, do some research to help him or her assess the cause of your tinnitus symptoms. Some doctors can’t provide a proper treatment because they do not have the education about the topic; others do know about tinnitus, and they can help you.
When you begin to hear the ringing, you must stay calm. Generally, it will go away quickly, and nine times out of ten, it does not mean that you have anything serious. Think about what you have done the past couple of days and if there’s nothing that you think could be the cause of it, then you probably want to consult with a doctor.

This calms you down and reduces your blood pressure.
You should not lay in bed trying to fall asleep for more than about 15 minutes. If you still have not fallen asleep, get out of bed. Don’t do anything that will stress you out or keep you awake. This isn’t the time to start on large projects such as cleaning the garage. Rather, try to do a soothing, relaxing activity. Be sure to only sleep in your bed, and don’t allow yourself to waste a lot of time struggling to sleep. This can become a ritual.
