Why is there a ringing sound in my ear???

Is that normal when I have a sound in my ear? I have a permanent ringing sound on my right ear, even when I close my eyes and try to sleep... ever since I'm like 12? Recently.. a few days back when I was involved in strenuous exercises, my left ear went ringing and I could not hear anything on my left ear... What's worse is whenever I shoot with my rifle, my right ear goes blank and I could only hear the ringing sound there.. What illness do I have? Does anyone know?

It is called tinnitus and it is quite common. You should tell your doctor and have your ear examined, but there may be nothing that can be done about it. Loud noises and gunfire will make it worse. I have it in one ear and I find it difficult to hear what people say when I am in a place with a lot of background noise. The ringing sound is often most noticable, and seems loudest, when there is no other noise at all. Some people think deafness means absence of sound, but many deaf people hear this noise constantly in their ears.

I think it is serious and you may consult a doctor. I believe he is not living far from your home. He can only tell you the reason after checking. Anyway it is not normal to hear any sound continuously for long time when there is no specific source.
