Tinnitus symptoms: What you need to know about the noise in your ears.
Tinnitus is a condition where you hear sounds that are not in your environment, such as ringing, hissing, beeping or pulsating sounds in the ear. Tinnitus can be constant or come and go, and can vary in strength and pitch. Tinnitus can affect your quality of life, your sleep, your concentration and your mood.
Possible causes of tinnitus symptoms
Tinnitus symptoms can have many different causes, such as hearing damage, age-related hearing loss, ear infections, wax plugs, stress, high blood pressure, medications or other illnesses. Sometimes no clear cause for tinnitus can be found.
When you should seek medical attention for tinnitus symptoms
Tinnitus symptoms can also be a sign of a more serious condition that needs medical treatment, such as:
- Meniere's disease: A disease that affects the inner ear and causes dizziness, hearing loss and tinnitus.
- Acoustic neuroma: A benign tumor that grows on the auditory nerve and can press on the balance nerve, causing tinnitus, hearing loss, and balance problems.
- Otosclerosis: A disease that causes the small bones in the middle ear to stiffen and prevent sound waves from reaching the inner ear. This can lead to tinnitus and hearing loss.
- Eustachian tube dysfunction: A condition in which the eardrum that connects the middle ear to the pharynx becomes blocked or inflamed, preventing equalization of air pressure in the ear. This can cause tinnitus, ringing in the ear and pain.
- Temporomandibular joint (TMJ) syndrome: A condition in which the jaw joint becomes inflamed or misaligned and causes pain in the face, head and neck. This can also affect the auditory nerve and cause tinnitus.
If you experience any of the following tinnitus symptoms, you should seek medical attention :
- Tinnitus that is only in one ear or that alternates between the ears
- Tinnitus that is pulsating or rhythmic
- Tinnitus accompanying hearing loss or vertigo
- Tinnitus that occurs suddenly or after a head injury
- Tinnitus that is very loud or bothersome
- Tinnitus that affects your ability to carry out your daily activities
Tinnitus symptoms are not dangerous in themselves, but they can be a sign of an underlying problem that needs to be treated. Therefore, it is important that you get a medical evaluation of your tinnitus to rule out any serious conditions that may be behind it. Your doctor can also advise you on treatments that can help relieve your tinnitus and improve your quality of life.
