What Causes Tinnitus?

Tinnitus is a condition that presents a signature symptom of a ringing sensation in the ears. Some patients describe it as a buzzing or humming sound. This can be very irritating and cause distress. Tinnitus is typically caused by either an underlying health issue or exposure to loud noise, although it can be difficult to identify the root cause.

When you have tinnitus, it can occur in one or both ears. It can be temporary from loud noise, a migraine, or an ear infection. Tinnitus can also be long-lasting due to hearing loss, but patients report variations in the level of noise.

How Can I Manage My Tinnitus?

There is no cure for tinnitus but we can help you manage it so you can go about your life without symptoms always interrupting you. To manage tinnitus, we treat any underlying condition contributing to the noise and try to find the best management strategies for your symptoms and lifestyle.

One strategy to combat tinnitus symptoms is disguising the sensation of tinnitus with white noise or sound therapy. In most cases of tinnitus due to hearing loss, hearing aids relieve the sensation. Managing your mental health is important when you have any chronic condition, so do not overlook therapy and self-care as part of your treatment plan.

When Do I See My ENT?

You should see your ear nose and throat doctor for tinnitus when it negatively affects your life. If you notice tinnitus after exposure to loud noise it may subside on its own. However, if the noise is consistent you should be examined by an ENT to identify the root cause.
