Ringing in the Ears

Tinnitus MiracleRinging in the ears must certainly be one of the most irritating medical conditions that exist. In fact, if there was a scale of 1-100 for annoying medical symptoms, ringing in the ears (or tinnitus) would surely rate well above 50%.

Ringing in the ears is a dismal condition and unless you have first-hand experience of it, it can be difficult to imagine.

Tinnitus can become debilitating in the following ways:

Ringing in the ears can affect the quality of a person’s life in a variety of ways. Lack of sleep may cause despondency and depression. Worrying about the diagnosis will add to that.

It may cause vertigo with nausea or without, it may cause severe headaches, loss of acute hearing which can be temporary or not. Ringing in the ears can certainly affect a person’s mental health until the condition is successfully treated.

The causes of ringing in the ears are many and sometimes, never diagnosed. The patient may be on medication which has the side effect of causing tinnitus. Obviously, this would then clear the moment the medication is stopped. The patient may have sinusitis, failed to protect their ears sufficiently in very noisy jobs (for example at airport terminals or using jackhammers, etc).

Sometimes the causative factor has been using headphones with the volume turned up too loudly. This may cause irreparable damage to the delicate stapes bone of the middle ear. A pulsing type of tinnitus may be linked to blood flow and needs special investigation.

A pulsating ringing of the ears may be caused by a throat or ear infection and be corrected with a course of antibiotics or it can be due to blood-flow problems. In the case of circulatory problems, the general practitioner will not hesitate to call on a specialist in this field for help with a patient suffering from pulsatile tinnitus. X-rays, tests on the ears and even MRI ultrasound scans will all come into play in investigating constant tinnitus. According to the results of these, the patient can be treated effectively through surgery or medication or even both.

Unfortunately, there are times when no reasons can be found for ringing in the ears and the patient has to learn to live with it – usually with the assistance of pharmacological support.

This brings me to the story of a young woman who recently visited the ER. She was besides herself with irritation and distraught enough to need sedation. She was suffering from almost constant tinnitus in her right ear. After some time, the ER doctor successfully removed quite a large beetle that had somehow crept into her ear. Showing it to the patient gave her a shock – but the instantaneous relief she felt from the halting of the annoying ringing in her ear was something to see! A happy and successful outcome to treat ringing in the ears is what every patient longs for and hopefully will receive.
