Ringing In My Ears

Written By: admin - Oct• 29•12

Tinnitus is the name of a little known medical condition where an individual hears sound in their ears. People with this condition describe hearing a ringing sound; however, others hear a whistling sound, a humming sound, the sounds of crickets, songs, beeping noises, tunes, whining noises, whizzing and other odd sounds. Some people even experience a roaring sound in their heads which can become very annoying as well as distracting.

So I guess the best Tinnitus definition would be a condition that at its mildest is an annoying ringing in your ears that comes and goes, all the way up to a full blown crisis with painful, constant, nagging noise that takes over your quality of life and makes it miserable.

Tinnitus can become a lot more than just annoying, it can change your life. Some patients suffer from Tinnitus to such a degree that they can no longer live a normal life. These sounds can be heard quietly, like background music, or it can be so loud that it interferes with your hearing of normal external sounds and can be extremely painful. It goes on and on and sometimes it gets so bad you just want to scream.

Tinnitus can sometimes be heard by a doctor, in other words, the sounds can be heard outside the patient's body. This type of Tinnitus is usually due to an unrelated outside medical condition. Tinnitus can be a symptom from other medical problems, and it can help diagnose those problems you don't know you have. Tinnitus can also occur or become more prominent when an individual has a fever or a non-ear related medical condition.

The most common causes of Tinnitus start with infections of the ear (both inner and middle ear infections), the placement of foreign objects within the ear, excessive wax build up, nasal allergies which affect the amount of fluid in the ear and taking too much of some medications, such as aspirin. Interestingly, a low Serotonin (hormone) level can cause Tinnitus, as well as major depression.

Tinnitus can also be caused by Cochlea damage. The Cochlea has this tinny hair like things that help send sound to the brain, and it helps keep us upright. Swimming accidents, sports injuries, dental surgery, allergies and sinus infections can cause it as well. Tinnitus is more common than one might think. A study has been done on a group of Tinnitus-free individuals that showed that almost 95 percent were able to hear a pulsing, buzzing or whistling noise when placed in a silent chamber.

There is an epidemic of hearing damage in the US due to exposure to high levels of noise, and noise is the second most common cause of Tinnitus. The noises can come from many different sources, like your favorite concert, or musical act. It can come from a noise source on the job, like in Industrial occupations. Thanks to OSHA, the Occupational Safety & Health Administration, most industrial work places furnish some form of ear protection, but not all. Just guard your hearing, it's important.

  3. QUESTION:
    How to get rid of ringing ears?
    About 10 minutes ago I was listening to really loud music in one of my ears from an iPod. It was with one of those small headphones that fit inside your ear. Ever since my ears have been ringing like crazy, and It's quiet where I am now. Whenever I plug my ears or sit still for a little while it gets worse. It's starting to hurt, and I'm starting not to hear other outside sounds. Any temporary relief before I call a doctor?

    • ANSWER:
      Everytime you listen to music, and your ears ring afterwards, you've lost a little bit of hearing ability.

      A way to lessen ear is to, I know it sounds strange, but take two pieces of garlic, peeled with the edges cut off, and rest them in your ear.

      It works, because I had an ear infection and it worked really well.

      If you get a wringed, hot flannel and place them over your ears when the garlic is in there, the relief is even quicker. :)

      Good luck, and I hope you get better soon. :D

  4. QUESTION:
    How long does it take for the Stabelite to work for ringing ears?
    I have a ringing in my ears. & I found in the cumpurter that this Stabelite will stop it I was wondering how it would be before it stops

    • ANSWER:
      Tinnitus is not curable so don't waste your money on things that can't help. If you have tinnitus you need to see an ENT doc to rule out any cause for it and so they can check for any hearing loss. Other than that tinnitus is not cureable.

  5. QUESTION:
    How do you get rid of ringing ears?
    2 hours ago, my friend had one of those horns where you blow it at football games. We were in a room where it echos, she blew the horn right next to the right-side of my ear on accident, for a minute i couldn't hear on my right. Now i keep hearing ringing and it feels like my ear is plugged. Does anyone know what i can do ?

    • ANSWER:
      Wait about a day and see if it goes away. If it doesn't you are screwed because you now have tinitus ( look it up). There is no cure for tinitus. It is permanent damage to the little "hairs" (not really hair) in your ear that transmit sound. Although there are a lot of home remedies that I have tried and spent money on, none work. I bought a book about it and there are a lot of suggestions, but none of them work. The book also said that in some cases it can cause insanity. I haven't felt any of that coming on , but I keep an eye out for it. I have had it every day for 10 years after a buddy fired a handgun next to my head.

      It sucks .... and you can sometimes filter it out but other times it is deafening. If you mow the lawn or go to a loud bar.... you can forget about hearing for a day or two because the ringing is so loud. Also I find that different foods make it ring louder, but I don't bother because it is not that much of a difference.

      Tell your buddy he is a dick........

  6. QUESTION:
    How to cure my ringing ears? is it Tinnitus?
    I always have a ringing in my ears. What could cause this? Is there any way to help it?
    Could this be related to tinnitus?

    • ANSWER:
      I have this same thing but I'm not quite sure if it's related to tinnitus. You could be getting destracted very easily because you may have ADD. ADD isn't related to tinnitus but the ringing is actually just normal for most people.There are numerous things that can cause chronic ringing in the ears. Inflammation of the inner ear is one of many, but the most common cause nowadays is psycholgical. It's a "somataform" illness, or "conversion disorder." In neurology they call it a "disturbance of function."
      It's easy for a doctor to rule out psychogenic tinnitus, though, by simply putting a stethoscope to your ear. If he or she can hear the ringing, then it isn't psychogenic.

      now you can find simple cure for tinnitus , just with 3 easy step must you do. no surgery, you can find it at this link http://tinnitushealer.com/
      just try it

  9. QUESTION:
    How to fix ringing ears?
    I used to play in a rock band and was around a lot of loud drums, and amps. That was when I was between the ages of 15 and 18. I'm now 19 and my ears are constantly ringing.

    • ANSWER:
      You seem to have tinnitus.

      This extremely irritating and stressful condition of the ear is usually not caused by any external noise. This auditory sensation, or ringing in the ears, as it is widely known affects thousands of people. It involves a ringing noise in the ears which may or may not be accompanied by hearing loss. Although many tinnitus sufferers can hear perfectly well, some others experience such loud ringing in the ears that other sounds are virtually blocked out. This severe condition renders them helpless as they loose sleep and concentration.

      Tinnitus can be broadly classified into two types: Objective which is caused by vascular sounds in the head and neck or muscular contractions of the middle ear or the soft palate in the mouth. Your doctor can easily hear the same sounds on examination as you are yourself hearing.

      Subjective tinnitus refers to buzzing, roaring, ringing or whistling in the ear which may be continuous or intermittent and are only heard by the sufferer, i.e. a doctor is unable to hear the same sounds. Subjective tinnitus is more common than objective tinnitus. Nearly 36 million Americans suffer from this disorder. In almost all cases, only the patient can hear the noise.

      Pulsatile tinnitus can be of both types - subjective as well as objective.

      Wax buildup in the outer ear, ruptured eardrum, congested Eustachian tubes, some infection, Ménière’s disease, Side effects of certain drugs like sedatives, antidepressants , pain killers etc., Damage caused due to overexposure to loud noise, Elevated cholesterol and triglycerides level, diabetes, head or neck injury etc. are some reasons why humans have tinnitus.
      Utilize masking noise. Tinnitus is usually more bothersome when the surroundings are quiet, especially when you are in bed. A competing sound such as a ticking clock, a radio, a fan or white noise machine may help mask tinnitus. Small hearing aid like devices which generate a competitive sound may help reduce the awareness of the tinnitus. You may combine such maskers along with herbal & homeopathic remedies.

      According to the American Tinnitus Association (ATA), there is no known cure of tinnitus, at least with the conventional line of medicine. For a long time though, herbs & herbal formulas have come to the rescue of these tinnitus sufferers.

      Tinnitus is usually due to damage to the microscopic ends of the hearing nerve in the inner ear. Perfect hearing is possible only if these nerves remain healthy and any damage to these nerves results in tinnitus or hearing impairment.

      Some herbal remedies exist which can be used to support all body systems involved in helping the ear to perform its tasks of clear hearing and balance, as well as the circulatory, cardiovascular, and nervous systems.

      Some of the most common herbs & biochemic tissue salts used are Ginkgo Biloba, Rosemary, Avena Sativa, Wild Hyssop, Salicylic Ac. (30C), Ferrum phosphoricum (Ferrum phos. D6), Magnesium phosphate (Mag. phos. D6) etc.

      Hope all this helps

      Good Luck!

  23. QUESTION:
    Are my ears ringing as a result of a plane ride.?
    I took a 1/2 hour ride in a Cessna 182 on Saturday. We went up to 6500 feet. Does that have something to do with my ears ringing? How can I make this ringing stop?
    Could there be a pressure change by removing my headset at 6500 feet? Would that cause a problem?

    • ANSWER:
      It could be lingering effects of the pressure changes, or it could be a result of the high noise levels in a typical airplane cockpit.

      Putting a headset on or taking it off won't affect pressure changes in your ears, but taking off a headset could expose you to high noise levels that might cause ringing later.

      Many aircraft have cockpit noise levels so high that your hearing can be damaged over time unless you wear ear protection (such as a closed headset that blocks outside noise).

      Ringing that lasts for a long time could be a sign of damage, such as a ruptured eardrum. Since it has been several days now, you might want to ask your doctor about it.

  24. QUESTION:

It's starting to really get on my nerves.

    • ANSWER:
      Tinnitus
      it is called Tinnitus

      Tinnitus, or 'ringing in the ears', refers to hearing sounds such as tones, whistling, wind rushing, crickets, etc. that aren't acoustically generated. In other words, a person with Tinnitus can hear them in a quiet room. The most common Tinnitus sound is a tone.

      Most people experience a temporary Tinnitus condition at some point in their life, such as after a loud concert, or as a complication to an inner ear infection. Unfortunately for more than 16% of the adult population, this condition is chronic - it never goes away. Of the 50+ million people in North America with chronic Tinnitus, 12 million have a severe case. For these people it is not unusual to perceive a tone greater than 90 dB-SPL. Note that 80dB-SPL is the level in industry at which a hearing conservation program is required. (Room-level conversation is typically 65 dB-SPL and a jet engine is around 110 dB-SPL)

      Chronic Tinnitus can be caused in a number of ways: an over-exposure to constant loud or explosive noise (on the job exposure is a common source), reaction to medication, a head injury (car crashes are a common source), complication of illness, and others.

      One of the most common complaints related to Tinnitus is that it adversely affects sleeping patterns. Sufferers find they can't get to sleep in a quiet room because of the annoying sound they perceive in their head. For many, this results in being progressively sleep deprived, and can start a downward spiral in psychological health. The reality is that Tinnitus is the only hearing affliction where anxiety, depression, and contemplating suicide are normal psychological complications. For most sufferers, their perceived level of Tinnitus is not constant and can worsen from exposure to high intensity noise, negative emotional pressures, heavy physical exertion, caffeine, salt, tobacco, allergens, and certain medications. Note that a common complication of aspirin for Tinnitus sufferers is that it temporarily worsens (makes louder) their Tinnitus.

      Outside of a cure, the most common desire of Tinnitus sufferers is to be able to control their Tinnitus rather than have it control them. A major factor in this is being able to sleep well and have the energy to face Tinnitus every day. When Tinnitus sufferers feel they have control, they are able to lead productive lives and many are able to get off all medications. The key to getting control is working with an audiologist to establish a personal Tinnitus management program.

      A Tinnitus Management program is a set of coping strategies that may vary depending on the level of activity and environment. It rarely is a one-component program. Typical program components include hearing aids, masking, residual inhibition, dietary and lifestyle changes, counseling, and support groups

    For people who have taken Wellbutrin XL, have you experienced your ears ringing as a side effect?
    I've been taking Wellbutrin XL 300 MG for about two weeks because have Seasonal Affect Disorder. My appetite is barely exists, have insomnia, and now experience ringing in the ears.

    • ANSWER:
      As for the ringing in the ears, that one is new to me. Wellbutrin can affect you appetite and sleep. I think you need to let your doctor know the effects the med is having on you. He may not think you are having any side effects unless you tell him. He may then change your dosage or put you on another medication that won't have that side effect. Please let the doctor know.

    • ANSWER:
      your ear drums need time to recover. 3 days is a little long, you may have damaged them. in time these things do heal but can be annoying. if the problem persists for a long amount of time or is accompanied by dizziness or headaches you may want to see a doctor to ensure you have not seriously damaged you ear drum, have an ear infection or onset tinnitus (chronic ringing ears). there isnt too much you can do for relief other than relax. usually you cant hear the ringing over a moderate volumed tv or radio, so you can try keeping ambience

    Can thinking of your ears ringing make it seem like they are really ringing?

Well, ever since I thought of the ringing sound, my ears feel like they're ringing all the time. Is this just my imagination? When I don't really think of it, I don't really hear it. And when I imagine the ringing becoming louder, it actually seems like it's becoming louder

    Ringing ears? Any solutions?
    Recently (over the past few days, maybe 4 or 5) I've been hearing an annoying ringing noise in my ears that never goes away, I had a tiny bit of ringing in my ears before but now it's extremely annoying. It came out of nowhere, I haven't listened to loud music or been around loud noises in quite a while. I'm just wondering if it's a condition or if it's actually hearing loss? It seems unlikely that it would just come out of nowhere but is it possible?

      Get your hearing tested. You could be damaging your hearing by not wearing protection. Heck, the military and police use ear protection when they are at the firing range. 16 is way too young to be messing up your hearing like that.

  33. QUESTION:
    What could this noise be? Subtle, high pitched/like ears ringing coming from only one room in the house.?
    Four family members of various ages hear the sound in one room only. My son cannot sleep in his bedroom where the noise is heard. We checked all electrical devices and toys, windows (thought it might be crickets and is not), television, lava lamp, smoke detector, etc. You cannot hear the noise in his closet or the hallway or any other room in the house. We even took his wristwatch out of the room. It is a constant, barely audible, high pitched sound as if your ears are ringing and the sound is not real, yet you get an eye/and headache if in his room for more than a few minutes. What else could it be??? What else should we check? He is sleeping in the spare bedroom for now, since it is unbearable. Myself and husband in our 30's hear it, as well as my son who is 10, and our daughter who is 6. This is not a joke, or riddle.....so please offer only serious suggestions. Thank you!

      I would first shut off the main power supply in the breaker box and then listen for the noise. If it goes away, it is something electrical. Possible the transformer for the doorbell, etc... Next turn the electric back on one circuit at a time to see if the noise reappears. Then follow the circuit to isolate the malfunction.
      If that does not stop the noise try to isolate the noise to see if it coming from the attic, walls, or floor. It could be a water flowing in a pipe or air flowing over a air / vent pipe.

      Good luck.....

  35. QUESTION:
    Can ringing in the ears cause deafness?
    My mom has ringing in the ears and is afraid of going deaf. Is it possible to go deaf from ear ringing?

    • ANSWER:
      typically hearing loss and ringing in ears coincide. As cells in the inner ear are damaged and hearing loss progresses many times the ringing starts to occur. The ringing is a sign that likely hearing loss has already started for her. The ringing will not make hearing loss get worse. She needs to be evaluated by an audiologist to see how bad her hearing is. She needs to try to protect her hearing from loud noise and may need hearing aids.

  38. QUESTION:
    Ringing In ears After Loud Concert...Need Good Advice...Any Similar Experiences? ?
    I am a 19 year old male who attended a concert on dec 19 which was fri night. Once I got to the concert I realized i had forgotten my ear plugs and it was too late to head back and get them. The concert was extremely loud and I knew i was going to pay with ringing ears. I have only been to one other concert where my ears rang but it went after about a day. The day after the concert the ringing was still pretty persistent but my hearing was not muffled. The second day the ringing had went down a lot and my hearing is 100%. I was having a pretty positive attitude after the first day thinking that upon waking up on the third day that all would be good. But when I woke up I still had very faint ringing in both ears. I have not had any pain in my ears and all of my hearing is completely there and normal. Will this ringing eventually die out? Is it taking longer because of how loud the show was and how long it was as well ( I was there for 4 hours)? I dont notice the ringing when doing everyday activity. I only do when I am sleeping or in a very very quiet room. I am hoping that this will eventually fade out but I am seeking some good advice.

    Again, the ringing has become very very faint after two days but is still noticeable when sleeping or in quiet areas. Thanks again!

    • ANSWER:
      Yea this will die out soon enough, the tiny little hairs in your ear that detect and seperate diffirent sounds are probably just a little worn out from the overload they were given, the ringing you hear is actually certain tones still being picked up from the concert.

  40. QUESTION:
    Ringing ears after allergies?
    About a week ago my allergies acted up and I got a mild head cold; my ears plugged up a little and my right ear was ringing pretty loud. I've always had a 'slight' ringing in that ear but not this bad. The head cold seems to be gone now but my right ear is still ringing much louder than normal. I haven't been exposed to any excessively loud noises that would have damaged my ear lately. Could there still be fluid in my ear even though it feels fine? I'm really hoping this goes away soon as it is quite annoying..
    I was doing a little research and apparently certain prescription medications can cause or worsen tinnitus. I did notice that the ringing got significantly worse today; maybe it's coincidental but I did start taking Ultram and Naproxen today (hurt my knee yesterday), so maybe that could be a cause, I don't know.

    • ANSWER:
      I often have ear problems, and if they continue to be persistent I usually take Claritin for a few days in a row.

  42. QUESTION:
    Ringing ears/headache?
    I smoked marijuana for the first time since few months and after smoking a bit i got really dizzy i felt like i was going to faint. After drinking some water i got a bit better but i still had a headache my eye started itching then hurting a bit, I could hear ringing in my ears and static. I didnt smoke much... Day later i had a mild headache and mild ringing in my ears. Two days after smoking i am still having a headache and rining in my ears.

    Oh yeah i have been having a flu for over a week now that might cause headaches and ringing ears but i doubt that...Can you please tell me that TEMPORARY ringing in ears and headaches can be a side effect of smoking this shit.

    I am considering going to the doctor but i dont want my parents to find out i am 17 is there some kind of doctor/patient confidentiality that wont allow the to tell my parents?

    • ANSWER:
      When I get sinus pressure headaches, my ears ring and so does my husbands.
      I think you're overreacting....
      If you are going to smoke, be prepared for the consequences because it sounds like you don't think before you act. What's done in the dark always come to light. Your parents will find out one way or another... maybe one of them or both knows that you do already?

  43. QUESTION:
    How can I make the ringing in my ears stop?
    5 months ago for some reason I put a little toy gun to my head it was already pretty loud but I had it directly on my ear and the noise made my ears ring and they've been ringing ever sense it's called tinnitus I know that and I'm going to an ear specialist very soon but I need some remedy or way to make the ringing stop now I can't sleep at night and the ringing is driving me Insane please help

    • ANSWER:
      If the ringing has persisted that long then, yes, you should see a ENT specialist. You may also want to try Murine ear drops available over the counter in some stores. Muring stopped my tinnnitus once. The tinnitus never came back. I guess I was lucky. It can get really annoying after a while.

  44. QUESTION:
    Is there anything i can do to get my ears to stop ringing ?
    Both my parents had their ears ringing permanently, but that started in their 30s, I'm 17. It stated on Thursday, and hasn't let up since then. Is there anything I can do to make it stop, or at least lessen ?

    • ANSWER:
      A ringing in the ears is commonly suggestive of elevated blood pressure. Your blood pressure fluctuates constantly in response to the demands of the body, and it is normal to have a ringing in the ears occasionally.

      However, if the ringing has been consistent and if it lasts for more than a couple of days, you should tell your doctor because it can be a sign of heart disease/defect or several other more serious problems. I would ask your parents though, high blood pressure can be hereditary and they probably know the source of their "ringing" so you might want to find out from them.

  45. QUESTION:
    Ringing ears and Shrooms?
    I'm trying shrooms for the first. Last night I went to a death metal concert and I stood right next to the amp without ear protection. So, obviously, my ears are ringing. It's 1:15pm right now and I will be doing the shrooms at around 8 pm. So I'm hoping the ringing will go away even more by then. Last night the ringing was really bad and all noise was muffled. But today I can hear perfectly fine but there's still that loud ringing. I was wondering if this was going to effect my trip. Tonight is the PERFECT night to do them and I don't know when I'll get another chance like this. So the question, Will the ringing in my ears effect my shroom trip? Will it make it worse? better?

    • ANSWER:
      If you let it affect your trip it will. I can see how it might affect it-- you could get really focused on the ringing and it could drive you crazy. Try to see the ringing as a positive thing and it could possibly become some magical aspect of your trip. Enjoy your trip!!

    What could be causing my dizziness and ringing in the ears?
    I get dizzy easily, any time I move my head quickly, my ears ring all of the time. A constant buzzzzzzzzzzz. Any ideas would help. Thanks a million. Dizzy

    • ANSWER:
      Get your blood pressure checked; it could be higher than you think it is.
      Aspirin toxicity can cause tinnitis (ringing in the ears). If you are taking aspirin (esp high doses) regularly, try decreasing your dose & see if that helps.
      Otherwise, yes, see your health care provider as any number of other things could cause this ... from facial nerve palsy to Meniere's to vasculitis. All of them treatable, some more successfully than others.
      Good luck to you.

  49. QUESTION:
    What does it mean when you hear ringing in your ears?
    My ears ring and it's like I hear wind in them and I can't really hear that well.I want to know if it is anything serious.and why is it happeing?

    • ANSWER:
      Do you listen to music at a high volume? Do you do that frequently?
      Do you go places - clubs, concerts for example - where music is played a high volume?
      Are you exposed to loud noises at work (like in a construction job, working at an airport, for example) or do you have hobbies or interests that expose you to loud noises - such as trap shooting or target shooting, or woodworking with power tools?
      If you mow lawns, do you use hearing protection?

      A common cause of tinnitus is prolonged exposure to loud noises for long times, or very loud noises for short times. It can be caused by various other things as well. Sometimes caffeine (as in coffee), can make it worse.

      The only thing that you can do is to go to a doctor and get a referral to an ear-nose-throat specialist and/or an audiologist for a hearing evaluation.

      In some cases, it goes away after a while if it was brought on by short term exposure to a some very loud noises. It does tend to be a long term (as in permanent) issue.
