What Are The Impacts Of Tinnitus?

When there is no external source producing sound, however there is the perception of sound, it is classified as Tinnitus. Our Ridgetown patients regularly describe their Tinnitus to us as a whooshing, buzzing, hissing, or ringing noise in the ears, as Tinnitus sounds vary from person to person. There are some individuals who describe a low-frequency humming or music-like tune, while other experience a high-pitched ringing sound. Tinnitus occurs continuously for some, and intermittently for others, with intensity that ranges from mild to severe.

What Is The Cause of Tinnitus

In order to effectively manage and provide relief for Tinnitus, our Ridgetown Tinnitus experts have an in-depth understanding of the causes.

Tinnitus can be caused by numerous factors, including:

  • Sustained Loud Noise Exposure: When exposed to prolonged loud noises, including working in a loud environment and attending concerts without hearing protection, the delicate hair cells in the inner ear can be damaged, leading to Tinnitus.
  • Hearing Loss Related To Age: As individuals get older, the natural ageing process can cause a decline in hearing function and may result in Tinnitus.
  • Buildup of Earwax: If large amounts of earwax are accumulating and blocking the ear canal it can cause irritation which can lead to Tinnitus.
  • Contributing Medical Conditions: Medical conditions such as Meniere’s disease, cardiovascular disease, and high blood pressure can contribute to the development of Tinnitus.
  • Medication Usage: Tinnitus can be a side effect of some medications, particularly those taken over extended periods of time or in higher dosages.
