Tinnitus brings about different symptoms depending on what may be causing them; however there are still many possible treatment options available to those who have been diagnosed with this atypical hearing disability such as medications, sound therapies (such as masking devices), counseling sessions, etc.
Many people with ear and head noises live in fear of the next noise coming. It can seem like a roaring, ringing or buzzing sound in your ear, and it may be intermittent or persistent. Tinnitus can affect one ear, both ears, high-pitched sounds such as “whispering” (auditory vertigo), low frequency humming such as fan noise (medical tinnitus). Tinnitus symptoms are not limited to a ringing in the ears, but also include other experiences such as beating sounds and low humming.
In some ways, tinnitus is considered more debilitating than hearing loss because one cannot simply cover up or mask the sound. Altering lifestyles can help alleviate many of the most troublesome symptoms, like stress and sleep deprivation. If this doesn’t relieve your tinnitus symptoms please call a physician and receive medical attention right away if you feel any type of tingling sensations in areas near your head.
