Medical experts also suggest that persisting Covid could be a trigger. Sometimes, the immune system reacts in strange ways as a response to fighting a long illness. For example, ringing in the ears could be a symptom. 

“Tinnitus is a prominent symptom in many people with long COVID and those with vaccine-associated conditions.
