Causes and Symptoms
Can you hear sounds that just aren’t there? Your ears whistle, ring, hum, hiss or throb, apparently without any reason. One in two people experiences noises in their ears at least once in their lifetime, and one in five people develops chronic tinnitus. The problem is that the sounds seem very real to those affected. Tinnitus is a phantom noise that is really quite difficult to deal with. What exactly is tinnitus? Does it go away on its own? Can it be cured? Or do you have to learn to live with it? You can find answers and useful tips here.
Prevention and Treatment
If you suddenly hear whistling, whooshing, or buzzing in your ear, the first step is to stay calm. While tinnitus is unpleasant, it’s not a symptom of a serious illness. The good news is that suddenly occurring tinnitus usually disappears on its own before long. But what should you do if the whistling or whooshing noises in your ear just won’t go away? The most important thing is to obtain a precise diagnosis of the causes of the sound in the ear. There are various treatment options, depending on the situation.
A ringing or buzzing in the ears is a widespread complaint. A whistling, ringing, or buzzing sound that seems to come from nowhere affects one in two people at some point in their lives. One in five people develop chronic tinnitus. As real as the noise may seem to sufferers, tinnitus is a phantom that is hard to pin down. It typically starts not in the ear, but in the brain. Find out about the triggers and causes of tinnitus, and how best to cope with it.
