How To Describe Tinnitus?

Tinnitus is described as the perception of sound when no external source is producing that sound. We often see our Chatham-Kent patients describe their Tinnitus as a buzzing, hissing, whooshing, or ringing noise in the ears, as Tinnitus sounds vary in each individual. There are some who experience a high-pitched ringing in their ears where others have a low-frequency or music-like humming. With Tinnitus, sounds can be continuous or intermittent and heard in a wide range of intensity from mild to severe.

What Causes Tinnitus

Our Chatham-Kent Tinnitus experts are skilled in understanding the causes for tinnitus, an essential part of effective management and relief.

There are many factors that can contribute to Tinnitus, including:

  • Loud Noise Exposure: Prolonged exposure to loud noises, including attending concerts without proper hearing protection or working in loud environments, can cause damage to the delicate hair cells in the inner ear, triggering Tinnitus.
  • Hearing Loss Related To Ageing: As individuals get older, the natural ageing process can cause a decline in hearing function, which may lead to Tinnitus.
  • Blockage Due To Earwax: With excessive amounts of earwax accumulating in the ear canal, irritation can occur and trigger Tinnitus.
  • Various Medical Conditions: There are medical conditions, such as cardiovascular disease, high blood pressure, and Meniere’s disease, that can contribute to Tinnitus.
  • Medications: A side effect of some medications, particularly those taken over a long period of time or in high doses, can begin the development of Tinnitus.
