TINNITUS TESTING IN DIGBY
Tinnitus is an audiological condition that causes a person to hear a sound when there is no external cause of the sound. Often referred to as ringing in the ears, the condition affects 15 to 20 percent of the population. Tinnitus may be a constant or intermittent sound. There may be single or multiple tones, and the volume can range from subtle to loud.
Tinnitus does not yet have a cure, however, there are treatment options to help you cope and manage your life with tinnitus. Tinnitus can significantly affect the quality of life.
The exact cause of Tinnitus is unknown, but the following can contribute to or worsen the condition:
Age-related hearing loss
Exposure To Loud Noise That Damages The Inner Ear
Misalignment Of The Jaw
Conditions Such As Fibromyalgia, Hypo- Or Hyperthyroidism & Meniere’s Disease
Medication Side Effects and Otoxic Medications That Damage The Inner Ear
Head & Neck Trauma
Although it affects people differently, if you have tinnitus, you may also experience:
Fatigue and stress
Problems getting to sleep or staying asleep
Anxiety and irritability
Looking deeper at these linked conditions and treating them may not affect tinnitus directly, but it can help you feel better.
