Ringing in my ear????

I have had a ringing in my ears for many many years.  About ten years 
ago I went to an audiology specialist and had it looked into and all 
they said is that I have a very slight hearing loss and not to wear 
walkman headphones and stay away from loud music.  They said they 
found no evidence of physical damage or anything else for that matter.

Well, it is now ten years later and the ringing is getting louder.  I 
called an audiologist recently and asked about my problem and she said
that it could be due to a high frequency hearing loss.  Is this a 
valid possibility?  I then asked her what I could, or she could do for
me and she said that IF that is the cause she could do nothing.  This 
is quite upsetting to me and since she said she could do nothing I 
blew it off(why spend $200 on tests for them to tell me they can't do 

Should I keep blowing this off or should I get a hearing test done?  
Are there any other possibilities as to the cause of my ringing?  Is 
there anything I can do to hear total silence?
