Treating Ringing in the Ears (Tinnitus) | Ear Problems


Man: Unfortunately, if our evaluation does
not reveal any specific treatable cause for tinnitus, then there is no treatment. And this is a very big problem, because in
the United States alone, there are over 20 million patients who suffer with tinnitus. But there is no pill that you can take twice
a day for five days and this will be gone. As a rule, if you have this noise for over
three months, it will not go away. It then becomes a challenge to learn to deal
with this noise. Tinnitus is always more pronounced when we
are nervous, because although the noise is generated in your ear, it is perceived in
your brain, in the same part of your brain that controls emotion. So it’s very common, if something happens
that gets you upset, for example, you have an argument with your significant other, the
noise will get louder. You will then become more upset by the noise. It will get even louder. You’ll get more upset. You’ll find yourself in a vicious cycle of
escalating noise in your ear. So the best treatment for tinnitus is anything
which will relax you. If you can learn to meditate. If you can learn to do exercise. If you can do anything to help yourself relax,
it will make this noise less bothersome. Another very effective treatment for the noise
is to create background sound, which will mask the noise. So, for example, many patients are unaware
of noise during the day, but they hear it at night. And the reason that they hear it at night
is because it’s quiet in your bedroom. So you can create some background sound in
your bedroom. You can sleep with the television on or a
radio, or you can buy a noise generator, where you can select the sound of wind, the sound
of rain, the sound of the ocean. And this background noise will mask out the
tinnitus or the sound that you’re hearing either in your ear or in your head. Finally, a small group of patients become
very anxious or very depressed as a result of this noise. And in that instance, it’s very important
to be properly medicated for either the anxiety or the depression, and that must be done medically. If you go online you will find many, many,
many cures. For $10 you can buy a bottle. You take it for two days, guaranteed to get
your money back. Don’t hold your breath until you get your
money back. Whenever we in medicine are unable to cure
a disease, others will fill that void to try to give you relief. But it is unfortunate but true, that there
is no medication that cures tinnitus.
