What Happens With Tinnitus?

Tinnitus occurs when there is a perception of sound when no external source is providing that sound. We consistently have our Chatham patients describe their Tinnitus as a whooshing, hissing, buzzing, or ringing noise in the ears, as Tinnitus sounds can have a large variance from person to person. There are some who hear a low-frequency humming or music-like tune, while some individuals experience a high-pitched ringing. Tinnitus varies greatly and can be continuous or intermittent at intensity levels ranging from mild to severe.

Triggering Tinnitus

Our Chatham Tinnitus team are highly skilled in understanding the causes of tinnitus, which is essential for proper management and relief.

Tinnitus is caused by many different triggers, including:

  • Prolonged Loud Noise Exposure: Activities such as attending concerts without hearing protection or working in a noisy environment can cause damage to the delicate hair cells within the inner ear, which can cause Tinnitus.
  • Age-Related Hearing Loss: The natural ageing process that occurs as people get older can cause a decline in hearing function, which may result in Tinnitus.
  • Blockage From Earwax: If excessive earwax builds up in the ear canal it can cause irritation leading to Tinnitus.
  • Certain Medical Conditions: Medical conditions including Meniere’s disease, cardiovascular disease, and high blood pressure can contribute to the development of Tinnitus.
  • Medication Use: There are some medications, particularly those taken over extended periods or in high doses, that include Tinnitus as a possible side effect.
