|Causes of Ears Ringing - Explanation Videos|
Have you noticed a strange sound in like your ears ringing lately, a funny ears ringing noise that never seems to go away?
Have you ever felt confused to discover the noises you heard and assumed was a siren going off was actually a permanent noise in your ears?
You are NOT alone!
It is a statistical fact that at least 17% of the population is now suffering from tinnitus which causes those ringing in the ears sounds and noises you have been hearing.
Almost everybody from all walks of like at one time or another has experienced having their ears ringing. The ringing can either be a temporary ringing or permanent one. This ringing sound in the ears is a condition called tinnitus. This condition is not a disease itself but rather a symptom of a disease or condition.
This is why it is so important to determine the cause of your ears ringing and understand how the ear works.
There are four sections of the ear. They are:
1. middle ear
2. inner ear
3. outer ear
4. the brain
Ears ringing can be coming from any of these parts of the ear.
The ringing can either be constant or intermittent. Generally only the person with the tinnitus can hear the sounds. You may find yourself asking people, ‘What’s that?” or “Do you hear that?” only to be replied to with puzzled looks since no one else can hear it.
Because some people experience only a temporary ear ringing, they don’t seek medical attention. They think it’s a normal response to loud noises such as walking through a construction zone or attending a concert.
However, even if the sounds temporarily go away, you could have permanent damage that will resurface at a later date. It’s best to seek medical attention right away to determine if there is a serious or long-lasting condition.
Also remember that since tinnitus is just a symptom, you could have more serious problems going on that need medical attention, such as problems that can lead to permanent hearing loss.
Trouble with conventional treatment
However, some people encounter problems with conventional doctors and treatment. You may be told that there is no cure for tinnitus - that is because there isn't a cure for tinnitus.
But there are some excellent natural treatments for tinnitus that are very effective at treating the underlying cause of ears ringing.
Prevention is better than a cure.
Just like all medical conditions, it’s always better to prevent it in the first place. The same can be said about tinnitus and there are actually many things you can do to help protect yourself from an ears ringing problem. The best way to prevent tinnitus is to take really good care of your ears.
Proper ear cleaning by having our earwax removed by a doctor regularly is recommended. **Be cautious of using at-home earwax removals and NEVER stick anything like a cotton swab into your ears. Often this is a cause of tinnitus.
For those who love to listen to music, take care not to listen too loudly.
Anything too loud is harmful to our ears. People who use earphones when listening to music must be extra cautious. The closer the noise to the ear, the larger the damage it can cause to the ear. For people who work with power tools, it is advisable to make use of earmuffs or earplugs.
Always remember that constant exposure to sound does not make you immune to loud noise. The more you expose your ears to loud noise, the more you are causing damage to your ears. This damage could be permanent.
Ringing in the ears can greatly affect a person to a point that it can become debilitating for some.
Tinnitus has been plaguing mankind forever, but has never been as widespread as it is today. The scary thing is that this condition is becoming more prevalent in our modern society and more and more people are now starting to become afflicted with these awful ear noises and most of them don't even know what is causing their ears to ring, how to prevent the ear ringing or how to treat the tinnitus problem.
What is making your ears ring?
If you are unsure of what it is that is causing your ears to ring, it is almost certain (actually there is about 95% chance) that the root cause of your tinnitus is likely to be cochlea damage probably from exposure to noise in one form or another.
Even if you believe that you have not been exposed to loud noise, have not worked in a noisy environment and do not listen to loud music, it can still be noise related damage to the delicate inner ear organs that is causing the problem - more on that below.
Cochlea damage induced ear ringing - it's far more widespread than you would imagine.
Some of the causes mentioned above were working in a noisy place or listening to loud music. These are actually only a small sampling of the causes of ears ringing or tinnitus and is beyond the scope of this article but that information is available to you right here at this website and you will be able to find a link to that info further on.
The major cause of ear ringing is damage to the delicate hairs and nerve endings in the cochlea. This can occur from exposure to sudden loud noises, or simply a single exposure to a sudden loud noise like that which occurs when your air-bags deploy in a motor accident. When this happens those tiny hairs are damaged and that is the start of your problems with ear ringing!
• In a recent survey of over 15,000 of our clients, over 95% blamed cochlear damage as the major causes of their ear ringing problems and the majority of these also blamed some sort of misadventure with noise as the root cause of the problem.
Ear infections and surgeries also play a part in the causes of tinnitus but it certainly our experience that the major cause of your ears ringing will be noise related in to some degree.
