How Is Tinnitus Described?

The perception of sound with no external source of sound is categorized as Tinnitus. Varying from person to person, our Blenheim patients regularly describe Tinnitus as a hissing, ringing, whooshing, or buzzing noise in their ears. There are some patients who describe a low-frequency humming or music-like tune, while other individuals experience a high-pitched ringing. There is a large range of Tinnitus intensity from mild to severe, and can be experienced continuously or intermittently.

What Triggers Tinnitus

When it comes to effective management and relief, our Blenheim Tinnitus experts have a deep understanding of the causes of Tinnitus.

A variety of conditions can trigger Tinnitus, including:

  • Extended Exposure to Loud Noise: Exposure to loud noises for a prolonged time, such as concert attendance without adequate hearing protection or working in a loud environment, can cause damage to the fragile hair cells in the inner ear, causing Tinnitus.
  • Hearing Loss Due To Age: The natural ageing process can trigger a decline in hearing function, which can sometimes result in Tinnitus.
  • Earwax Buildup: If excessive amounts of earwax begin to block the ear canal it can cause irritation leading to Tinnitus.
  • Medical Conditions: There are certain medical conditions that can contribute to Tinnitus such as cardiovascular disease, high blood pressure, and Meniere’s disease.
  • Certain Medications: There are some medications that can trigger Tinnitus as a side effect, particular in medications that are taken in higher doses or over extended periods of time.
