I think in my case it was a combination of listening to music too loud over the years, and being exposed to heavy machinery for some number of years at work.
You might not get ringing in the traditional sense. I have a normal constant ringing in the right ear, but the sound of faint crickets chirping in the left. I don't really notice it during the day due to ambient noise in the enviroment.
There is no set cure. There supposedly is some treatments that will calm the nerves and may dull the sound. Alot of people who have it bad try listening to white noise while they fall asleep. They claim you can "retune" your ear and eliminate the effects.
Don't mention the music.... You can use it to get extra cash out of Uncle Sam in the future if you blame it all on your job.
