  1. “So quiet it rings in my ears.” A familiar saying? Listening to ringing in silence is basically the norm. This was proved as early as 1954, when perfectly healthy students were placed one by one in soundproof cells and after 15-30 minutes they heard ringing in their heads and ears.

    This is explained by the presence of constant subthreshold activity of neurons in the cochlea hair cells (the organ of hearing). In complete silence, this subthreshold activity increases, and the person listens to the ringing. Listening to the blood flow has absolutely nothing to do with it.

    *For reference: blood flow through the vessels is always heard in the form of a pulsating noise*

    As I wrote above, listening to ringing in silence is not a pathology. This becomes a pathology when a person is fixed on this bell. Fixation occurs due to stress, anxiety and depressive disorders.

    Therefore, first of all, it is necessary to contact a psychiatrist or psychotherapist to correct psychoemotional disorders.

  2. Ringing in the ears, hum, squeak in complete silence. So the hearing aid perceives the movement of blood through the vessels of the head, located near the icoma.

  3. If sometimes, then it's okay. In theory, this may be a sign of rising blood pressure, the first signs of sensorineural hearing loss, but more often it does not mean anything.

  4. the movement of blood through the vessels is also explained by the “noise of the sea” in the sink… however, it is enough to put a sink or just a glass to your ear in a quiet room. to make sure it's as dead as a scientist's head. Read my book “The Yellow Brick Road House” and you will understand everything.

  5. It is said that at the same time you can hear how blood flows through the vessels of the head. Perhaps this is the sound we take for such a ringing in the ears… I don't know what else to write 🙂
