Tinnitus (Ringing)

Will Tinnitus prevent me from diving?

Tinnitus or ringing in the ears can have many causes. Your doctor should investigate the underlying cause regardless of the condition being acute or chronic. Gradual progressive Tinnitus can be due to noise exposure as well as advancing age. It is usually associated with a hearing loss. If the underlying problem is not serious, there is no reason to curtail diving.
