If you have asked yourself this question, chances are, you have tinnitus which affects at least 30 million Americans. The sufferers usually hear a noise that can be constant – and annoying – or that is intermittent. Why are my ears ringing? Tinnitus is still a mystery but there are many risk factors that can increase your chances of suffering from this condition that can be debilitating.
What is Tinnitus?
The tinnitus pronunciation varies from TIN-a-tus or Tin-eye-tus to TIN-ih-tus or even tih-NI-tus. This affliction can affect anyone of any age man, woman or child although it is commonly reported in older men.
The symptoms of tinnitus can vary from high pitched ringing in ears, hissing, buzzing, whooshing, roaring, squeaking, whistling, humming, etc.
Tinnitus can be a frustrating and debilitating affliction because the noise can be constant and can affect your work, your sleep, your social life, family life etc.
These “phantom noises” usually have no source and are heard only by the person experiencing this condition. This is why despite tinnitus sufferers thinking they have a serious medical problem, doctors and others in the medical field do not view this affliction as a disease or serious medical condition. This can be frustrating for a sufferer when trying to find treatment.
This is also why treatment is so diverse because what can work for one sufferer will not necessarily work for you and vice versa.
Tinnitus can vary from mild, to moderate, to severe which can affect concentration and quality of life amongst other things.
It can also affect one ear or both ears. The noise can be constant 24/7/365 or the noises can come and go as they please in a few people.
Since the source of these noises is unknown, this condition is a symptom of a problem rooted deep inside your body. While finding treatment can be difficult, especially with conventional treatment, holistic treatment methods have been found to be quite effective at getting rid of this affliction for good.
