Tinnitus or, in scientific terms, tinnitus worries about 8% of the adult population of the Earth. Just think about this number! After all, it means that now in the world there are approximately 580 million people who hear the hum, whistle, hiss, buzz, click, and other unpleasant sounds. The noise in the ears can be constant or occur periodically, it can be like the crash of a waterfall or a barely audible squeak of a mosquito, it can be localized in one or both ears, or it can be felt in the head.

Many studies confirm that the central nervous system is very sensitive to noise. With constant noise, a person’s working capacity, memory, attention span, and information processing speed are significantly reduced, but fatigue, nervousness, and irritability, on the contrary, increase. Nowadays, you don’t need to worry about it more, because at the present modern world science is improving day by day, there are many Tinnitus relief supplement which can cure it without any surgical or long process.

So where does tinnitus come from?

  • Often tinnitus occurs as a reaction to environmental stimuli. For example, due to noise in the workplace, loud music or the roar of airplane turbines.
  • The cause of tinnitus can be stress and prolonged stress.
  • The pathology of one of the departments of the ear (external, middle or internal) can also cause tinnitus.
  • In some cases, tinnitus is a symptom of a disease in internal organs or systems. It can be caused, for example, by hypertension, neurocirculatory dystonia, blood and endocrine diseases, infections, intoxications, cerebral atherosclerosis, osteochondrosis of the cervical spine, pathology of the temporomandibular joint, brain tumors, etc. As a rule, in In these cases, tinnitus disappears when the patient is cured of the underlying disease.
  • A side effect of taking certain drugs.

In order to start treatment for tinnitus, you need to be examined by an otolaryngologist (ENT doctor). Most often, audiometry is used for diagnosis, and when choosing a therapy, the timing of the onset of the disease, the cause (if possible), the degree of hearing impairment, the experience of previous treatment and the data of psychological testing are taken into account. If necessary, the doctor may schedule an examination with other specialists (for example, a neurologist or otoneurologist) and additional tests.

To date, for the treatment of tinnitus most often used:

Pharmacotherapy, i.e. drug treatment. It can be anticonvulsants and psychotropic drugs, zinc preparations, histaminolytics, drugs that improve cerebral circulation, etc.

Hardware method includes hearing aid and noise masking. The latter does not cure noise, but only blocks and, as it were, blocks it, which greatly facilitates the patient's life. Noise masks are not universal, they are selected individually for each patient after noise metering.

 

Surgical intervention is recommended only in the most extreme case and in the presence of other disturbing symptoms.

Psychotherapy is often prescribed in parallel with pharmacotherapy. Psychotherapy, firstly, helps the patient not to focus on noise in the ears, and, secondly, often saves him from a nervous breakdown, because constant noise even in very balanced people can cause a nervous breakdown. Psychotherapy is also important when tinnitus is psychogenic, that is, is a symptom of a mental disorder.
