What exactly is Tinnitus?
Tinnitus is often an idiopathic condition. What that means is that the cause or origin of Tinnitus is often not known. It is estimated that almost 50 Million Americans suffer from Tinnitus at some stage in their life.
Though the vast majority of Tinnitus cases are temporary in nature, Tinnitus can also be chronic and very debilitating. Though Tinnitus is very prevalent, medical information about the condition is not very comprehensive.
The only recourse for Tinnitus patients is to see an audiologist who will check for hearing loss. If hearing loss is present, a Tinnitus patient may be prescribed hearing aids. Hearing aids can only prevent the Tinnitus from getting worse and will not reverse Tinnitus. While age-related hearing loss is one of the main causes for Tinnitus, they are definitely not the only cause.
What's causing Tinnitus?
There are also other causes such as Tinnitus caused by dehydration.
Dehydration can cause havoc in the body’s blood pressure, ear muscle functioning, changing inner ear fluid composition and also by decreasing lubrication in the ear. All of this can present as ear problems like Tinnitus, vertigo and other conditions such as muffled hearing.
Infections in the middle or inner ear can contribute to the development of tinnitus.
Similarly, a blockage caused by a buildup of earwax, inflammation, or a foreign object lodged inside the ear canal can also lead to tinnitus by disrupting the normal functioning of the ear and causing ringing, buzzing, or hissing sounds.
Loud noise, for example, is a common cause for Tinnitus.
This is most often experienced when people experience a ringing, buzzing or hissing sound in their ears for a few hours or days after attending a concert or other loud environments.
Certain medications are known to cause or exacerbate tinnitus as a side effect.
Some examples include nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), certain antibiotics, antimalarial medications, loop diuretics, chemotherapy drugs, and high doses of aspirin.
But don't worry. Treatment is possible!
Suffering from Tinnitus and not being able to cope with the condition often leads to a vicious cycle of anxiety, depression and stress that often makes Tinnitus worse. Habituation is a powerful tool in such cases.
Habituation will not reverse or eliminate Tinnitus but will help a Tinnitus patient cope and get used to the ringing in their ears, thereby preserving their quality of life.
