Tinnitus and You – How to Cope
Tinnitus is the perception of sound in the ears or head when no external sound is actually present. It is often described as “ringing in the ears”, but can also take the form of hissing, clicking, roaring or other similar sounds.
The American Tinnitus Association estimates that more than 50 million Americans experience tinnitus to some degree. For most, tinnitus is diagnosed as a benign, chronic condition that requires no treatment. The remaining people find it a plaguing affliction that cannot be ignored and can be so debilitating that it impacts all aspects of life.
Tinnitus is most commonly caused by hearing loss and exposure to loud noise. All too often, exposure to guns firing, rock concerts, chain saws, and other loud noises will create tinnitus. Effects from medications, drugs or alcohol also play an important part in causing tinnitus.
Often tinnitus is not a serious symptom. However, sometimes it can be a sign of a serious medical problem. Anyone with ringing in their ears should be evaluated by an ENT physician. Tests of the ear should be done including an audiometric hearing test with tympanometry, brainstem auditory evoked potentials (BAER), electrocochleography (Ecog), and otoacoustic emissions (OAE). These are needed to rule out any serious problem that may be treated. After the cause is diagnosed, treatment can be instituted.
