Correcting even fairly minor hearing loss means that parts of the brain involved in hearing don’t have to work as hard, and therefore don’t pay as much attention to the tinnitus. The course of chronic tinnitus is unpredictable. Some prescription and over-the-counter drugs can affect/worsen existing tinnitus or, in some cases, cause tinnitus as a side effect and damage one’s hearing (ototoxicity).
One of the most common causes of tinnitus is damage to the microscopic endings of the hearing nerve in the inner ear. I loved the great tinnitus miracle review I came across some time ago. Advancing age is generally accompanied by a certain amount of hearing nerve impairment, and consequently chronic tinnitus.
Tinnitus does not have to dramatically affect your quality of life. You should avoid focusing too much attention on your tinnitus and take steps to manage the condition. Avoid excessive noise, and find relaxation and stress management techniques that work for you.
Roughly 10 percent of the adult population of the United States has experienced tinnitus lasting at least five minutes in the past year, and approximately 10 million of them have been bothered enough by the condition to seek a doctor. Tinnitus may be only an annoyance for some, for others the relentless ringing causes fatigue, depression, anxiety, and problems with memory and concentration. Thank you Adrian from www.TinnitusRemedyHQ.com for your excellent review of the Tinnitus Miracle guide! Available treatments help some people cope, but current therapies lack the potential to significantly reduce the bothersome symptoms of tinnitus.
Tinnitus can arise in any of the four sections of the hearing system: the outer ear, the middle ear, the inner ear, and the brain. Some tinnitus or “head noise” is normal. A number of treatments and techniques may be of help, depending on the cause.
While tinnitus does not cause hearing loss, it may accompany decreased hearing and other symptoms such as a feeling of pressure in the ear and/or dizziness, vertigo or unsteadiness. For many people with tinnitus it occurs alone with no other symptoms.
While tinnitus used to be associated with some form of hearing loss, we now know it is sometimes experienced by some children and adults with good hearing. Many people with a hearing loss do not experience tinnitus. Tinnitus does not mean you are going deaf or your hearing loss is going to get worse.
