Why do I have Tinnitus?
Tinnitus is a symptom, not a disease. There are many possible causes of tinnitus, but some people develop it for no obvious reason. The most common cause of tinnitus is noise-induced hearing loss, but it may also be a result of the natural aging process, ear wax buildup, ear infections, sudden explosions, head or neck injuries, traumatic life event, reaction to medication, or temporary exposure to loud sound.
Many people seek medical intervention for tinnitus, as it can be a distressing problem that can interfere with daily living and one’s enjoyment of life.
There are no known medications that cure tinnitus, so sufferers are often told that “There’s no cure for tinnitus. You just have to learn to live with it”. Thankfully, this is not the case. We can achieve significant relief from the aggravation of tinnitus.
Tinnitus relief techniques
Hearing aids are beneficial for more than 80% of people who have tinnitus. The better you hear, the less your tinnitus stands out. Your brain hears other sounds more and this makes tinnitus less noticeable.
Modern hearing aid technology can now provide sound therapy. You may find that listening to different types of sound can move your attention away from the annoying tinnitus and provide relief. One can also download tinnitus apps onto their smartphone to enable access to soothing sounds to make you relax more.
