Tinnitus

WHAT IS TINNITUS?

Tinnitus is a monotonous sound heard in one ear or sometimes in both ears even though there is no external sound in the environment. The sound might be deep and low-pitched (like the sound of a wind or sough), or high-pitched (like a ring or resonance). Everyone might occasionally hear transient ringing in the ears, but tinnitus, which is constant even in the noisy environment, can make a patient miserable.

Long-term consequences of tinnitus include depression, anxiety, sleep disorder, and concentration impairment.

Patients with severe tinnitus usually have a history of prolonged exposure to loud noise (acoustic trauma). Weapons, loud music, noisy work machines adversely affect this condition.

WHAT IS THE TREATMENT OF TINNITUS?

For most cases, there is not a specific treatment. If the underlying cause of the hearing loss can be treated, tinnitus might heal. Diagnosing the underlying cause might require running radiography and balance tests. Despite these attempts, the underlying cause might sometimes remain unidentified. Even if unidentified, medications may help in some of these conditions. There are various medications used for the treatment of tinnitus. Usually, the physician prescribes one or more of such medicines and later asks the patient whether they were effective or not.
