Tinnitus Treatment Options
Tinnitus is a condition characterized by ringing or buzzing noises that originate within the ear or the head. Symptoms that accompany this condition can cause both stress and discomfort.
Though this condition is not typically dangerous, it may be a symptom of an underlying health condition. Tinnitus can cause a wide array of side effects including fatigue, sleeplessness, difficulty concentrating, memory difficulties, depression, irritability, and anxiety. The accompanying symptoms may prove to be debilitating.
Possible Causes of Tinnitus;
- Age-related hearing loss
- Exposure to loud noise
- Earwax build up
- Abnormal bone growth in ear
- Meniere's disease
- Head/Neck injuries
In some cases, Tinnitus may be resolved on its own. In other cases, treatment may include addressing an underlying condition. It is important to note that there is not one treatment that will work for each individual. Treatments may not make symptoms disappear completely, but they may work to ease the severity of the symptoms. Many patients have found that a hearing aid can help with the symptoms that accompany Tinnitus. An Audiologist can work with you to help identify the cause and explore possible treatment options for your unique circumstances.
