Tinnitus is most commonly referred to as ringing in the ear. But really, it doesn’t have to be just ringing. It can be any number of noises you hear when there are no external sounds of that nature to be heard.
So don’t be fooled; just because you don’t hear ringing in your ear doesn’t mean you don’t have tinnitus. Any phantom noise could mean you have tinnitus.
You Might Have Tinnitus If…
* You hear ringing
* You hear buzzing
* You hear roaring
* You hear clicking
* You hear hissing
If you hear any one of these things at a time that there is no ringing, buzzing, roaring, clicking, or hissing going on externally, then you probably have a case of tinnitus. It could be high, it could be low, it could be a squeal, it could be in one ear, it could be in both ears.
And sometimes the phantom sound might be so loud in your head that it interferes with your ability to hear actual sounds. It could be there all the time, or it may be something that comes and goes.
Tinnitus itself isn’t so much a problem. It’s actually just a symptom of something else that could be wrong. So it’s not something you should take lightly by any means.
How Tinnitus Can Affect You
Tinnitus will affect people in many different ways. Much like how individuals can react to the same pain differently, each person will react differently to the symptoms they are experiencing from tinnitus.
* Some people can have difficulty sleeping or concentrating on things. In other words, if you’re always hearing this phantom noise then how do you focus on anything but.
* Some people may feel depressed or anxious. Being the only to hear a noise could do that to a person.
* Some people may have problems at work or school which can be attributed to their tinnitus, because they are so focused on this phantom sound that they drop the ball on their assignments.
* Some people become more stressed out when listening to these phantom noises.
* A changed emotional state in general could be present in some people who are experiencing tinnitus.
In rare instances doctors might be able to hear a patient’s tinnitus for themselves. This is what’s known as objective tinnitus. In this case the doctor can hear this rhythmic tinnitus with a stethoscope up to a patient’s ear or even when just standing in really close proximity.
Most often in this case the patient has a vascular or muscular problem. It will almost seem to the patient and the doctor as if you can hear your heartbeat right in your ear. This only occurs in about 5% of all tinnitus cases, though. Easier to diagnose in this case, but also pretty rare.
The most important thing anyone can do for themselves is listen to their body. If you hear noises, don’t ignore it even if people tell you that you are crazy. Give your doctor all of the information and help them help you.
Effectively Treating Tinnitus
* If you have wax build-up this can cause the tinnitus. Your doctor will simply remove the impacted wax by flushing it out of your ear.
* If you have a blood vascular condition which is causing your tinnitus, then you could receive multiple different treatments depending on your case and the severity. It could be treated with medication to treat the vascular problem, or you might need surgery.
* Some medications can cause ringing in the ears. So if you’re on a medication, then finding a new medication may be all that’s needed to treat that problem and stop the ringing.
* Sometimes white noise machines can help treat the tinnitus.
* A hearing aid can help with your tinnitus. In some cases the start of hearing loss could be why you experience tinnitus, so a hearing aid can help cover up that ringing in the ear.
* You may need TMJ treatment. TMJ is a jaw joint dysfunction. Sometimes people who have TMJ will find relief of their tinnitus once they get their TMJ treated. (Also learn more about TMJ Ease)
* Massage therapy. Sometimes tightened muscles in the neck and jaw area can cause tinnitus. Massaging these muscles may help relieve the ringing you are experiencing.
* Improving your physical activity and your diet can have a positive impact on everything, including tinnitus. If you have high cholesterol or blood pressure, then this can cause pressure in the ears which can lead to tinnitus. Taking stock of how you live your life and reducing stress, as well as eating better and exercising, will treat a problem you didn’t even know you had (high cholesterol and blood pressure) and get rid of a problem you wish you didn’t have.
* Have a hearing test. Knowing if your auditory functions are working correctly is important in determining what is causing the ringing and taking steps to rectify that.
* If you have a thyroid problem, then treating that can treat your tinnitus too.
* Since a brain tumor is a possibility for those who suffer from tinnitus, getting a CAT scan to find out if there is a tumor is important. Surgery or other therapies can then be used to remove the tumor if that’s a possibility.
Because tinnitus is simply a symptom of something else not working within your body, it’s very important that you find out exactly what’s not working right and treat that problem so you can get rid of that pesky ringing.
Once you know what’s going on with you, you’ll sleep easier and stop hearing these phantom noises whenever you try to go to bed at night.
