Tinnitus Management

Tinnitus is difficult and tiresome. Let us help you manage the condition.

Tinnitus (pronounced ti-ni-tis), or “ringing in the ears,” is the perception of a sound in one or both ears, without there being an external cause for that sound.

Tinnitus (also known as ‘ringing in the ears’) is the frequent experience of bothersome sounds inside the head. The condition is very common, effecting 44 million Americans and is the most common injury for our armed service men and women.

Others cannot hear the sounds that are described as ringing, buzzing, or chirping but for individuals with tinnitus, the sounds are very real and perceived as a threat to their well-being.

The sounds heard with tinnitus can be intermittent or constant, and loud or soft. Tinnitus can affect your life every day; maybe you experience sleepless nights or distracting noises. Sometimes, it is ear pain that won’t go away. While the experience of tinnitus can vary widely, the effect upon sufferers is often similar: difficult and tiresome. These sounds may come and go, but for most, the symptoms produce a constant, maddening drone.

Tinnitus symptoms can range from slightly bothersome to completely life-altering, and since tinnitus is most often noticed in quiet environments, it can create sleeping problems that lead to long-term fatigue.

Tinnitus (pronounced ti-ni-tis), or “ringing in the ears,” is the perception of a sound in one or both ears, without there being an external cause for that sound.

Tinnitus is the experience of frequent, bothersome sounds inside one ear, both ears or more central in the head. While loved ones and doctors cannot hear these sounds (described as ringing, buzzing, whooshing, or chirping), for individuals with Tinnitus, the sounds are very real and can be a threat to their well-being. If you have this condition, know you are not alone: Tinnitus affects around 44 million Americans, and is the most common injury for our armed service men and women.
Unfortunately, Tinnitus can be difficult to understand because its cause can be as elusive as its cure. It is not a disease, but instead a symptom that something may be wrong in the ear, the auditory nerve, and/or the part of the brain that processes sound. It can affect those with and without hearing loss, and there is often no specific reason for tinnitus.
While the experience of tinnitus can vary widely, the effect upon sufferers is often similar: difficult and tiresome.

Some Causes Of Tinnitus Are:

  • Untreated medical conditions
  • Natural aging
  • Sudden impact noises
  • Exposure to loud sounds over time
  • Head and neck injuries
  • Medication side effects (called ototoxicity)
Tinnitus can be difficult to understand because its cause can be as elusive as its cure. Tinnitus is not a disease, but instead a symptom that something is wrong in the ear, the auditory nerve, and/or the parts of the brain that process sound. Something as simple as a piece of earwax blocking the ear canal can cause tinnitus.
