Tinnitus

Tinnitus is commonly described as a ringing in the ears, but it also can sound like roaring, clicking, hissing, or buzzing. It may be soft or loud, high pitched or low pitched. You might hear it in either one or both ears. In the past year, experts estimate that 30 million adult Americans experienced tinnitus for more than three months, which is roughly 10 percent of the adult population of the United States. Tinnitus is not a disease. It is a symptom that something is wrong in the auditory system, which includes the ear, the auditory nerve that connects the inner ear to the brain, and the parts of the brain that process sound. Something as simple as a piece of earwax blocking the ear canal can cause tinnitus. But it can also be the result of a number of health conditions.

Tinnitus is sometimes the first sign of hearing loss in older people. It also can be a side effect of medications. More than 200 drugs are known to cause tinnitus when you start or stop taking them. People who work in noisy environments such as factory or construction workers, road crews, or even musicians can develop tinnitus over time when ongoing exposure to noise damages tiny sensory hair cells in the inner ear that help transmit sound to the brain. This is called noise-induced hearing loss. Soldiers exposed to bomb blasts can develop tinnitus if the shock wave of the explosion squeezes the skull and damages brain tissue in areas that help process sound. In fact, tinnitus is one of the most common service-related disabilities among veterans returning from Iraq and Afghanistan.

Pulsatile tinnitus is a rare type of tinnitus that sounds like a rhythmic pulsing in the ear, usually in time with your heartbeat. A doctor may be able to hear it by pressing a stethoscope against your neck or by placing a tiny microphone inside the ear canal. This kind of tinnitus is most often caused by problems with blood flow in the head or neck. Pulsatile tinnitus also may be caused by brain tumors or abnormalities in brain structure.  Even with all of these associated conditions and causes, some people develop tinnitus for no obvious reason. Most of the time, tinnitus isn’t a sign of a serious health problem, although if it’s loud or doesn’t go away, it can cause fatigue, depression, anxiety, and problems with memory and concentration. For some, tinnitus can be a source of real mental and emotional anguish.

If you are experiencing tinnitus, you should ask your primary care physician to refer you to an audiologist for a comprehensive hearing examination.  The hearing evaluation will help determine if more extensive testing is needed.

  2. In line with my study, after a foreclosed home is bought at a sale, it is common for the borrower to still have any remaining balance on the bank loan. There are many loan providers who seek to have all service fees and liens paid off by the subsequent buyer. Nevertheless, depending on particular programs, regulations, and state laws and regulations there may be many loans that are not easily solved through the exchange of financial products. Therefore, the obligation still remains on the debtor that has had his or her property in foreclosure process. Many thanks sharing your opinions on this website.
