Tinnitus, or ringing in the ears can become a chronic condition. From what you've described, you've had this for almost a year now along with additional symptoms. The typical testing for patients with tinnitus would include a hearing (audiogram) along with a test of the ear drum (tympanogram). In some situations, providers may also recommend further testing including imaging studies like an MRI
