  • Sun 14th Oct 2018 - 1:03pm

    Usually signaled by ear ringing, tinnitus has affected the lives of millions of individuals. We say affect because it could be loud enough to ignore its presence. There are people who get stressed, or worse, depressed by the constant noise. It may not be as detrimental as it sounds, but the medical conditions that underlie it could be much more serious. Blood flow related conditions such as anemia, high blood pressure, malformation of the capillaries, and atherosclerosis are some of them. Included in the list are Meniere's disease, injury in the head or neck, blocked ear canal, hyperthyroidism, and loss of hearing. As this is the case, a medical advice should be sought.

    Also caused by repeated exposure to loud noise and use of certain medications, this ear ringing tinnitus is likewise manifested by a buzzing, clicking, hissing, roaring, whistling or humming sound in the ears or head. Additions to the symptoms are dizziness, headache, a sense of fullness and pain in the ears. It comes as low-pitched or high-pitched, can just come and go, and knows no age bracket.

    The thing about this condition is that there is no cure for it. But to put its sufferers' worries aside, there are various treatments that have provided its sufferers with relief. There are commercially available ones, but it is suggested to try out the natural treatments first. Among these is not to get stressed. It might be easier said than done, but it is perhaps the best remedy that we can put our hands on. Smokers might also have to sacrifice their dose of nicotine as it is one of the aggravating factors of tinnitus. Salty foods, coffee, soda, and alcohol are also some of the substances to be avoided. Furthermore, a diet that is rich in protein, choline, zinc, and the vitamins A, B, and E should be taken into consideration.

    It is often suggested to ignore the unwanted noise as much as possible. This can be done by listening to our favorite music, but we should make sure that it is put in a moderate volume. But for those who need further help, the use of maskers and hearing aids may work for them. Hearing aids would be helpful for those who have hearing loss problems, although these could also be of help to those whose hearing is alright but want to make the ringing sound less noticeable. Maskers could function the same, except that they produce white noise to mask the bothersome noise. Alternative remedies like acupressure, acupressure, aromatherapy, herbal and homeopathic medicines have also been tried out and have been reportedly successful.

    Ear ringing, tinnitus, buzzing ears, however you may want to describe the noises, it is still that noise that we hear in our ears or head. It is either we defeat it, or we let it negatively meddle with the lives that we are leading.
