The Sounds of Tinnitus Are Symptoms of Something Else Going On
The sounds of tinnitus can be so severe that they interfere with your normal everyday life. Millions of folks around the world find their tinnitus sounds so distracting that they find it hard to function normally in the workplace and do the everyday things that most people take for granted. But what you may not know is that your tinnitus sounds are just the symptoms of an underlying problem or problems. Find out what here.
Typical tinnitus sounds are described as whistling, whooshing, knocking, ticking, booming, ringing, hissing, etc. But, although these are sometimes called the symptoms of tinnitus, they are in fact the symptoms of an underlying problem or condition. Tinnitus is not technically a medical condition as such, but rather a ‘symptom’ of a condition.
Typically these underlying conditions are things like, for example ; inner ear / auditory nerve damage, noise-damaged hearing, head trauma, whiplash, meniere’s disease, otosclerosis, blocked eustachian tube, allergies, stress, hypertension (high blood pressure), and even the result of some drug treatments.
Normal treatments for tinnitus consist of medication using antidepressants, antihistamines, anticonvulsants, cardiovascular and intravenous lidocaine, etc. Others are the use of hearing aids and audio maskers, and, psychotherapy, counselling, tinnitus support groups and so on. Complimentary therapy such as self-hypnosis, meditation and yoga etc. can also be tried. Even acupuncture may help a little. But, unfortunately, there is no medical cure for tinnitus sounds.
The problem is that these are either ‘coping’ or ‘masking’ mechanisms, so that you learn how to live with your tinnitus sounds. They do not address the root cause of your tinnitus, which are the underlying conditions. So that whilst you may get some initial relief, all too often your tinnitus will just return. It is reckoned that some 93% of all tinnitus suffers never get relief from their tinnitus sounds.
