Causes of Tinnitus
A large number of people experience tinnitus. Estimates show that tinnitus affects nearly25 million Americans. It is not an ear problem but a symptom associated with varioustypes of hearing or health problems. Tinnitus is typically attributed to:
- Hearing Loss: Most people suffering from tinnitus also experience some hearing loss.
- Very Noisy environment: The exposure to loud noises too often can adversely impact hearing, resulting in permanent hearing loss and tinnitus. Such exposure for a longer time makes hearing loss as well as tinnitus worse.
- Consumption of Medicines: Several medicines (over 200 of them), including aspirin, can cause tinnitus. If are you consuming certain medications regularly and also suffer from tinnitus, consult a The Hearing Aid Doctor to determine whether there is a cause-effect relationship between the two.
- Other probable reasons: Health problems such as tumors, heart and blood vessel problems, allergies, as well as problems of neck and jaw can cause tinnitus.

What Can I Do to Help With Tinnitus?
After your session with Doctor Schade and an audiometric test, your best treatment plan will be established for Tinnitus.
There could be other underlying medical issues behind the tinnitus. It’s imperitive to rule out any other possibilities that may affect your hearing, as well as your overall health. There is a chance you could be referred to an ear, nose and throat (ENT) doctor to finalize the diagnosis.
How To Prevent Causing Your Tinnitus to Worsen
Stay away from anything that could increase the ringing in your ears, such as drinking alcohol, smoking, or loud noises. If your work conditions require that you be around lound sounds, it is recommended you talk to The Hearing Aid Doctor about hearing protection possibilities.
It may be difficult hearing over Tinnitus. It may help to face your friends and family when speaking to them. This way you can clue yourself in using their facial expressions and reactions. Ask others to speak louder, but not necessarily more slowly.
Types Tinnitus Treatment Available
After a review of your personal health history, as well as an audiometric test, Dr Schade will identify which of the following is the right treatment option:
- Hearing Aids: Hearing aids enhance hearing and may hide most symptoms of tinnitus. A majority of people with tinnitus can get partial or full relief with hearing aids.
- Maskers: Maskers are small electronic devices that look like hearing aids, but are designed to create sound that will mask or cover up the Tinnitus.
- Allergy Treatment: Allergies may worsen the symptoms of Tinnitus. If you’ve tested positive for specific allergies, treatment may reduce any ringing you may have in your ears, as well as provide a boost in energy.
- Drug Therapy: Certain supplements or medicines may provide relief from tinnitus. Speak with your doctor about the possibility of medication.
