I am 77 years old, have had tinnitus since I was 19 - constant ringing an whistling in my ears - much worse with aging - occasional ticking, occasional sound of water running. Nothing to be done - gingko bilboa supposed to be helpful. No headachaes. If you do mention it to others you will be surprised to find how many also are bothered by it. Wish I could be more encouraging - you should look into the headaches. Good luck.
