RINGING IN THE EARS

Ringing in the ears - Tinnitus (from Latin language: tinnitus - "ringing").

The exact physiological cause of tinnitus is unknown. Tinnitus is tied to several factors that are present at the beginning or worsening of its symptoms as well as with some diseases: Exposure to loud noise (from working environment, music, etc.) leads to damage of cells in the cochlea. 90% of people suffering from impaired hearing have also tinnitus symptoms. Accidental exposure to loud noise can lead to temporary ringing in the ears (e.g. after a rowdy concert).

Causes:

- Too long staring at a computer screen, mobile phone, etc. (reading a book does not cause the same effect).
- Accumulation of earwax in the ear.
- Intake of certain medications. Some medicaments are ototoxic (aminoglycosides) while others cause ringing in the ears as a temporary side effect (chinidin).
- Inflammation of the ear or sinuses.
- Distortion of the jaw.
- Diseases of the cardiovascular system.
- Tumor of the vestibular, auditory or facial nerve.
- Trauma to the head and neck.
- Hypo and hyperthyroidism, etc.


Treatment:

There is no intervention that cures tinnitus. When tinnitus is part of another illness treatment of the disease can lead to positive results.
