Treating a Blood Vessel Condition Causing Tinnitus Treatment

Treating a Blood Vessel Condition Causing Tinnitus TreatmentOne of the causes of tinnitus has to do with the blood vessels found within the year. Tinnitus itself is generally not a condition to worry about, but rather a symptom of an underlying cause. Most people do not have to worry about the symptom unless it becomes bothersome.

For others, though, it can signal the presence of an underlying blood vessel condition that may require further treatment. When you visit your LCSW-R in New York City, you’ll learn more if you may have what is called pulsatile tinnitus and what treatment options may be available to you for it.

What Is Pulsatile Tinnitus?

Treating a Blood Vessel Condition Causing Tinnitus TreatmentPulsatile tinnitus is one type of ear noise that some people can develop. It is not like the traditional ringing in the ear but rather a more rhythmic sound. It may correlate with your heartbeat. It may sound like a whooshing sound or it may be more of a thumping sound. It is related to the way your blood is moving through your body. Also, known as a vascular form of tinnitus, only about three percent of people who experience tinnitus will have this form. It is considered a rare instance.

It occurs in the blood vessels that are found within the neck or head. You may have increased blood flow or a specific narrowing of the opening portion of a blood vessel. In some cases, you may have both. When this is the case, it causes a turbulent blood flow through the body and this is what you hear in your ears.

Treatment for Tinnitus

What Is Tinnitus?There are several treatment options that may be available to you if you have this form of tinnitus. The treatment will relate to the cause. For example, some people may experience this because of hypertension. In this cases, reducing blood pressure will be key. If you have twisted arteries, another common cause of this type of sound, you may not need any type of treatment. In still other conditions, it may be related to a growth, artery disease, or tumor. These all need to be further investigated by your doctor. Most of the time, treatment for these conditions is available and may be noninvasive.

However, even though it is rare, you should report any type of pulsatile tinnitus to your doctor right away. If you are not sure, contact your LCSW-R in New York City.

Can White Noise Machines Help Treat Tinnitus?

Can White Noise Machines Help Treat TinnitusWhen it comes to treating tinnitus, there are several options available that may work for patients. One of the options your doctor may recommend is the use of sound therapy. In short, the sound can help to mask or otherwise limit the amount of sound you hear from tinnitus itself. One of the options you may learn about is a white noise machine. This type of care may be one of the least invasive treatment options that offers an effective result. Working with your LCSW-R in New York City can provide you with treatment options for your symptoms.

How can a White Noise Machine Help You?

Can White Noise Machines Help Treat TinnitusWhite noise machines are newer types of treatments for tinnitus. Generally, the device will generate white noise. When used as a treatment for tinnitus, the device works to reduce the unwanted sounds significantly. Some people report that the sound is gone altogether.

White noise is a unique sound. It is made up of various frequencies of sound along the complex sound spectrum. When used at the right level, it can create a rather soothing sound. In fact, some dentists use white noise as a way to help reduce anxiety in patients.

For treatment for tinnitus, the white noise generator is a small device much like a hearing aid. You will place it on your ear or right behind the ear. The device is battery powered. And, once in place, it will produce a constant, but very low noise that sounds like a rushing sound. This sound is then transferred from the device into the ear using a small tube. This moves the sound closer to the ear drum. It is generally used in both ears, though some patients may only have it present in just one. As a neutral sound, it works very well to reduce any other ringing sound you have.

Can White Noise Machines Help Treat TinnitusWhat we know about tinnitus indicates that it is generally not the presence of a real sound in the ear, but rather the brain working to turn up your hearing so it can hear better. With that understanding, then, it makes sense that, with the use of a white noise machine, it is possible to see a reducing in the amount of tinnitus heard. The white noise works because it helps to make the auditory system less sensitive to sounds in general. Work with your LCSW-R in NYC to determine if this is the right treatment for you.
