The ringing or buzzing sound inside one or both ears is called Tinnitus. It may be continuous or may come and go. Those who suffer from tinnitus experience a wide range of noises inside their ears. Tinnitus is of two types, objective tinnitus, and subjective tinnitus. In objective tinnitus, apart from the patient himself, people around him can also hear the buzzing sound inside his ears. But in the case of subjective tinnitus, only the patient himself can hear the buzzing sound inside his ears. Subjective tinnitus is more common than objective tinnitus. Severe cases of tinnitus can be extremely disturbing, the patient may not be able to sleep or concentrate. In Latin, tinnier means “to ring”. Tinnitus is the medical term for “ringing in the ears,”. It is the perception of ringing, hissing, or another sound in the ears when no external sound is present. It affects 1 in 5 of the World’s population and touches over 33% of the elderly community. It may be intermittent or constant in character, mild or severe in intensity, and vary from a low roar or throbbing to a high-pitch sound so deafening the individual may hear nothing else. It may be subjective -audible only to the patient or may be objective which is audible to others. It may or may not be associated with a hearing impairment. Tinnitus isn’t a disease. It’s a symptom that can be caused by a number of medical conditions.

Causes

  • Most tinnitus comes from damage to the microscopic endings of the hearing nerve in the inner ear.
  • Hearing loss. Doctors and scientists have discovered that people with different kinds of hearing loss also have tinnitus. Too much exposure to loud noise can cause tinnitus.
  • Long-term use of certain medications. Aspirin used in large doses, quinine, antibiotics, and anti-inflammatory drugs can affect inner ear cells. Trauma-related damage to your inner ear.
  • Temporomandibular joint problems. These are “jaw joint” disorders, and they may result in clicking or grating noises when you move the jaw.
  • Stiffening of the bones in the middle ear.
  • A hole in or a rupture of the eardrum.
  • Ear infection. If an infection reduces your ability to hear outside noises, you’re more likely to hear the noises related to tinnitus.
  • Ear wax. The buildup of excess wax in your ear can reduce your ability to hear or inflammation of the eardrum membrane, the middle ear, or the inner ear.
  • Allergies, tumors, and problems in the heart and blood vessels, jaws, and neck can cause tinnitus. High blood cholesterol clogs arteries that supply oxygen to the nerves of the inner ear. If you are older, advancing age is generally accompanied by a certain amount of hearing nerve impairment and tinnitus.
  • Diet can affect tinnitus. Specific foods may trigger tinnitus. Foods including red wine, grain-based spirits, cheese, and chocolate quinine/tonic water, high fat, and high sodium can all make tinnitus worse in some people.
  • Stress is not a direct cause of tinnitus, but it will generally make an already existing case worse. Ringing in the ears also sometimes accompanies vertigo (dizziness).
  • Maskers are small electronic devices that use sound to make tinnitus less noticeable. Maskers do not make tinnitus go away, but they make the ringing or roaring seem softer.

Alternative treatments

Some people have taken minerals such as magnesium or zinc, herbal preparations such as Ginkgo biloba, homeopathic remedies, or B vitamins for their tinnitus and found them to be helpful. Others have experienced tinnitus relief with acupuncture, sacral therapy, magnets, hyperbaric oxygen, or hypnosis.

Home Remedies For Tinnitus

  1. Take 300 mg. a day of Coenzyme Q10 This powerful antioxidant is crucial in the effectiveness of the immune system and circulation to the ears.
  2. Bayberry bark, burdock root, goldenseal, hawthorn leaf and flower, and myrrh gum purify the blood and counteract infection.
  3. Ginkgo biloba helps to reduce dizziness and improve hearing loss related to reduced blood flow to the ears.
  4. Eat fresh pineapple frequently to reduce inflammation.
  5. Include in your diet plenty of garlic, kelp, and sea vegetable.
  6. For ringing in the ears, mix 1 teaspoon of salt and 1 teaspoon of glycerin in 1 pint of warm water. Use a nasal spray bottle to spray each nostril with the solution until it begins to drain into the back of the throat. Spray the throat with the mixture as well. Do this three times a day.
  7. If tinnitus is due to loud noise then wearing a mask could help. Sometimes tinnitus may be a symptom of some other medical problem; in such cases, the underlying condition must be treated first. Reducing your stress level will also decrease tinnitus, therefore breathe deeply. Put 20 to 40 mg of extract of the Maidenhair tree or Ginkgo biloba into your ears for four to six weeks. This will dilate blood vessels and increase blood flow to the ears.
