Tinnitus: Causes, Treatment & Prevention

Tinnitus refers to a feeling of ringing or hearing noises in your ears. The noise that you can hear when you are suffering from tinnitus is not due to any kind of external sound. Normally, other people are not able to hear it. It mostly affects fifteen to twenty-five percent of the population, mostly adults who are older.

This disease has associations with age-related loss of hearing. It can also be due to problems in your circulatory system or an injury. Some of the other causes are as follows.

Causes of Tinnitus:

  • Hearing loss

There are some minute hair cells in the cochlea or inner ear that often move when the ear gets sound waves. They trigger electrical signals from the ear nerve to the brain or auditory nerve. In case the hair is broken or bent, it can cause a leak in your electrical impulses leading to tinnitus.

  • Medications

Medications of a higher dosage can make your tinnitus worse. When you stop using all these medications, the noise often stops ringing in your ears.

  • Neck or head injuries

Neck or head injuries can affect your brain, hearing nerves, and inner ear. This causes tinnitus.
