Tinnitus Evaluation

Tinnitus is difficult and tiresome. Let us help you manage the condition.

Tinnitus is the perception of a sound in one or both ears without there being an external cause for that sound. Most people experience a “ringing” in one or both ears.

Tinnitus Symptoms

The symptoms of tinnitus come in many shapes and forms. Typically, tinnitus symptoms are experienced as:

  • Ringing
  • Buzzing
  • Clicking
  • Hissing
  • Roaring

The sounds heard with tinnitus can be intermittent or constant, and loud or soft. Tinnitus can affect your life every day; maybe you experience sleepless nights or distracting noises. Sometimes, it is ear pain that won’t go away. While the experience of tinnitus can vary widely, the effect upon sufferers is often similar: difficult and tiresome. These sounds may come and go, but for most, the symptoms produce a constant, maddening drone.

Some Causes Of Tinnitus Are:

  • Untreated medical conditions
  • Natural aging
  • Sudden impact noises
  • Exposure to loud sounds over time
  • Head and neck injuries
  • Medication side effects (called ototoxicity)

Tinnitus can be difficult to understand because its cause can be as elusive as its cure. Tinnitus is not a disease, but instead a symptom that something is wrong in the ear, the auditory nerve, and/or the parts of the brain that process sound. Something as simple as a piece of earwax blocking the ear canal can cause tinnitus.
