Tinnitus (Ear Ringing) – Causes, Symptoms, and Treatment

 The strange phenomenon where the ear is ringing without audible sound
from the outside is called "tinnitus".

Generally, the ear ringing appears when you have some difficulties in
hearing. This jarring noise gives you various agonies from
sleeplessness to depression. The exact cause of tinnitus is a hard-to-
find answer by many specialists.

Does tinnitus cause stress? I do not think that way. It is stress
that cause tinnitus, isn't it? Tinnitus itself is not a disease but a
symptom resulting from wide range of causes, including ear
infections, foreign objects, earwax, injury from loud noises or
sounds, and side effects of some medications such as aspirin and
serotonin.

Although this is not definite, some research groups reported to us
that climate or certain seasonable atmosphere might make people to
have ear ringing, and also to those who have nervous temperament.

WHAT IS TINNITUS? A definition from an internet news:

The symptoms of tinnitus include ringing noises in the ears or
hearing sounds that seem to be coming from inside your head. The
sounds of tinnitus may be varied and sufferers report the noise as
ringing, buzzing, whistling, beating or roaring. The noise may be
continuous, may come and go, be heard in one ear or in both. Tinnitus
is sometimes associated with hearing loss. For some, tinnitus may be
nothing but an annoying little sound they hear every now and then,
but for the unlucky ones, tinnitus can reduce the ability to
concentrate or hear outside noises and may become completely
debilitating - preventing the sufferer from leading a normal life.

WHAT REALLY CAUSES TINNITUS?

Tinnitus is usually caused by damage to the microscopic hairs that
line the auditory cells in the ear. These hairs usually move in
response to sound waves detected, producing a brain wave that is
experienced as sound. When damaged, these hairs become bent or broken
and move randomly in a constant state of irritation,
producing "sound" impulses in the brain.

Degenerative damage in people of advancing age is a common cause of
tinnitus and usually paired with hearing loss. In younger sufferers,
exposure to loud noise is probably the leading culprit.

Other causes of tinnitus may be as benign as a small plug of wax in
the ear that is easily removed. Tinnitus may also occur as a result
of head and neck injury, stiffening of the bones in the middle ear or
as a side effect of prescription drugs.

Sometimes, tinnitus may be caused by an actual sound produced in your
body that becomes audible due to disease or proximity to the ear
(objective tinnitus). Circulation problems such as high blood
pressure and atherosclerosis can cause the sound of blood flow in
vessels close to the ear to become more forceful, or turbulent -
allowing your ear to detect the sound. Malformation or narrowing of
blood vessels in the head and neck can have the same effect. More
rarely, tinnitus is a symptom of a tumor in the head or neck.

There is no definite answer for tinnitus at all. All the answer seems
to be just guessing games.

Probably, your physician told you, "Hmmm, there's no abnormality
anywhere, anyhow. Hmmm, here's your medicine." It is impossible that
there's no abnormality. If there is nothing wrong, where does that
ear ringing come from?

Well, how does that ringing sound produced? Many doctors in Japan
believe that the cause might be due to autonomic imbalance;
vegetative dystonia, or distortion of Gnathal, arthropathy. Aside
from that, stiff shoulders and high blood pressure are at top list.
Most doctors are unclear about the real cause of tinnitus.

    Hello to everyone else out there who has a ringing in their ears. It is brutal. I know. I remember the exact moment when it started for me a few years ago and I never thought it would be continual. Like many / most of you I have likely exposed myself to too much load noise at many different times. That said, the fact that my symptoms would occasionally diminish has led me to try to peice together some ryme or reason. After a few wrong attemts at finding a cause and effect for the good days or moments vs. the days of constant loud ringing [does everyone else experience these variations ?] I think I have found the answer!!! I have a habit of always falling asleep watching T.V. I wake up half way through the night, turn of the T.V. and go to bed. Does that sound familiar? Or is it the radio mabey for you? I have learned that if I go to bed/sleep with out the noise for afew days in a row it all but disappears! I am a creature of habit so have only so far gone three or so days in a row on afew occasions, not full time cold turkey so to speak but every time the reduction in the ringing seems to correlate exactly with my time sleeping without back ground noise. I'm thinking maybe a part of the brain remains stimulated while we are sleeping becouse of the continued audio stimulation. Maybe the brain is not able to completely get to REM or some such thing. I'm no doctor or scientest [obviously I know] but I really think I am on to something and I hope this can help some others out there. E mail me @ tcskelton@accesscomm.ca if anyone would like regarding this. Good luck to all of us. I hope what I am saying turns out to be at least an answer for some of us.

    I recently learned that if we don't know the cause then we should build up the kidney energy as it is at the root of almost all ear ringing. Check out the internet under chinese medicine, kidneys, and ear ringing.

  17. It is important to keep in mind that tinnitus is a symptom, not a disease. As such, the optimal treatment strategy should be directed toward eliminating the disease, rather than simply alleviating the symptom. Also, because tinnitus may be symptomatic of a more serious disorder, it is important to try to find the medical cause before deciding on tinnitus treatment.
