How Can Tinnitus Impact People?

Tinnitus occurs when no external source is producing sound however there is the perception of sound. Tinnitus is often described as a ringing, buzzing, whooshing, or hissing noise in the ears, as our Wallaceburg patients describe Tinnitus sounds that vary from person to person. An individual may experience a high-pitched ringing, while others experience a low-frequency humming or music-like tune. Tinnitus can be experienced at various intensity levels ranging from mild to severe that can be continuous or intermittent.

How Tinnitus Can Be Triggered

Our Wallaceburg Tinnitus experts provide effective management and relief as they are skilled in understanding the causes of Tinnitus.

There are a variety of factors that can trigger Tinnitus, including:

  • Exposure to Loud Noise: Activities such as attending concerts and working in a noisy environment without hearing protection that have prolonged exposure to loud noises can damage the small hair cells in the inner ear, leading to Tinnitus.
  • Ageing Related Hearing Loss: As people age they can find that the natural ageing process leads to a decline in hearing function, which can cause Tinnitus.
  • Earwax Obstruction: If excessive earwax accumulates in the ear canal it can lead to irritation and trigger Tinnitus.
  • Possible Medical Conditions: There are some medical conditions that can contribute to Tinnitus including cardiovascular disease, high blood pressure, and Meniere’s disease.
  • Prescribed Medications: Tinnitus can be triggered as a side effect of some medications, particularly those taken over a sustained period of time or in high doses.
