7 Uncommonly Known Facts About Tinnitus

7 Uncommonly Known Facts About TinnitusTinnitus is a condition of the ear which usually manifests itself as sounds which are not coming from the external environment. People who suffer from this condition may experience hearing a buzzing, humming, ringing, or hissing sound in their ears. We’ve got the facts about this condition.

#1. Noises in the Head:

In general, tinnitus is characterized by hearing noises in the head, however, these are not usually the result of any psychiatric condition. Symptoms can vary between patients and the noises can be heard anywhere in the head, in one ear, or in both.

#2. Many Causes:

Whilst many people believe that tinnitus is caused by prolonged exposure to loud noises, the truth of the matter is that this condition can be brought on by several different reasons. Some people will develop tinnitus for no obvious reason, whilst for others, it is brought on by an infection or through hearing loss.

#3. More Common than You Think:

As a condition, tinnitus may be more common than you realize. In general, around 10-15% of adults will experience tinnitus during their lifetime, with around 50 million citizens in the U.S. suffering from this condition to some degree. Around 12 million patients have tinnitus which is so serious that they must seek medical help.

#4. Can be Caused by Stress:

7 Uncommonly Known Facts About TinnitusIf you lead a stressful life or suffer from anxiety, then you may be at a higher risk of developing tinnitus. Stress and anxiety can be common contributors to this condition; many patients who suffer from chronic stress, panic attacks, or depression are more prone to hearing ringing and other sounds in the ears.

#5. Not All Cases are Equal:

Many cases of tinnitus are caused by the brain interpreting sounds coming from the ears. Because of this, the sounds heard as a result of this condition can vary greatly between patients. While a ringing in the ears is the most common symptom, it’s not uncommon for patients to hear other sounds such as buzzing, clicking, humming, or a mixture of sounds.

#6. Smokers are at Higher Risk:

Studies have shown that smoking isn’t just bad for your heart and lungs – the toxic chemicals found in cigarette smoke can also be harmful to your ears, with known links with ear infections and tinnitus.

#7. It Causes Embarrassment:

7 Uncommonly Known Facts About TinnitusMany people suffering with tinnitus are too embarrassed to mention the condition to their friends or family, and can often be put off from seeking help.

The Best Holistic Treatments for Curing Tinnitus

The Best Holistic Treatments for Curing TinnitusDo you suffer from a ringing in the ears that’s happening all too often? If so, then there’s a chance that you’re suffering from tinnitus – but don’t worry, since there are several natural treatment options out there which can help. Most experts view tinnitus as a condition which causes ringing in the ears, however, this can also be manifested as other abnormal sounds and sensations. For many, tinnitus symptoms will eventually go away as the ears adjust, however, if you have been dealing with tinnitus for some time, you might want to try one of these natural treatment options.

#1. Counseling and Coping Strategies:

Experts recommend that patients suffering with tinnitus become as educated as possible about the condition and learn how to best deal with the symptoms. This could include getting educated on biofeedback in order to control your stress reaction to tinnitus sounds, for example. If tinnitus is really beginning to get you down or make you anxious, then talking with a counselor can help you manage the emotional side effects.

#2. Avoiding Prescription Drugs or Alcohol:

The Best Holistic Treatments for Curing TinnitusResearch has shown that some prescription and over-the-counter drugs, even simple painkillers, have been known to make the symptoms of tinnitus worse. Smoking, and drinking too much alcohol, are also linked to tinnitus and can worsen the symptoms. If you believe that your medication could be the root cause of your tinnitus, then speak to your doctor about lowering your dose or switching to a different brand.

#3. De-Stress:

If you are super stressed all the time, then this can lead to inflammation in your body, a main cause of tinnitus and other ear problems such as infections and vertigo. Along with that, being stressed out can make dealing with the symptoms of tinnitus worse due to the fact that it changes how your brain reacts to the sounds heard. Chronic stress can reduce your immunity and make you more susceptible to infections, nerve damage, allergies and other ear problems. Natural stress relievers such as exercise, yoga, meditation, and calming essential oils can help tackle a tinnitus problem brought on by stress.

#4. Remove Earwax:

The Best Holistic Treatments for Curing TinnitusIf you have excessive earwax, this could be a main contributing factor to your tinnitus symptoms. However, be careful when dealing with this – putting q-tips or anything else into your ear to clean it can actually contribute to blockages and damage. If you are worried that you have too much earwax which could be causing a health problem, then speak to your doctor about having it drained.
