Tinnitus (Ringing in the Ears)

The medical term for a buzzing or ringing noise in the ears is called tinnitus or ringing in the ear. However you might also hear sounds other than ringing including buzzing, roaring, whistling and hissing.

Ringing in the ear or tinnitus can be frustrating. The sound you hear can interfere with hearing real sound.

People of all age group can develop tinnitus and you may experience in one or both ears.

Tinnitus can be of two types, one being objective where you and other people can hear certain noises in your ears due to abnormal blood vessels in and around your ears, another being subjective which is more common where only you can hear the ringing, roaring and other sounds.

Cause of Tinnitus:

The common cause for tinnitus is damage to the middle or inner ear. Damage in the tiny bone or eardrums in your middle ear interfere with proper conduction of sound.

Tumors in the auditory nerve or in the ear may also cause ringing in the ears. On a regular basis exposure to very loud music can also be the cause of tinnitus in some people.

People who use jackhammers, chainsaws or other heavy equipment are more likely to be in the risk zone to have tinnitus.

Medical conditions can also cause these symptoms, such as:

  • Hearing loss which is age related
  • In your middle ear muscle spasms
  • Meniere’s disease
  • High blood pressure
  • High cholesterol
  • Neck and head injuries
  • Overabundance of earwax

Treatment for Tinnitus (Ringing in the ears):

To diagnose tinnitus our doctor will examine your ears and conduct a hearing test.

To treat any deformities or damage in your ears you might also undergo tests like CT or MRI scans.

We will first treat any underlying medical conditions causing your tinnitus, and will address any blood vessel abnormalities and remove any excess earwax. Your existing prescription medications can also be changed to restore normal hearing if medications are contributing to your tinnitus.

Noise suppression machines may also help to dull the ringing, roaring or buzzing as it will provide with relaxing noises to mask your ear sounds.

Manage your tinnitus by reducing stress, though stress is not a cause of it but it can make it worse.

Prevention from Tinnitus:

Prevent tinnitus by protecting your ears from loud noises, keep an eye on the volume of your radio, television and personal music player.

It is also advanceable for you to avoid any kind of medications that may be the cause for your tinnitus symptoms to recur.

Schedule regular hearing test with us to promptly detect any problems with the structure of your middle and inner ear.
