Tinnitus

We speak of tinnitus , or tinnitus , when we have the sensation of hearing a high and continuous sound (similar to a whistle or a buzzing) inside the ear, even in the absence of external noises. The causes of tinnitus can be internal (such as earwax plugs and inflammation of the middle and inner ear), or external.

What are the remedies for tinnitus?

There is no specific cure for tinnitus , but it acts on the triggering cause. Sometimes, however, finding out the origin of the disorder is not immediate. It is possible to relieve tinnitus by taking medications (for example antidepressants) on prescription or by undergoing treatment sessions with machines that emit “white noises”, with a recognized relaxing function.

What are the diseases associated with tinnitus?

The diseases associated with tinnitus are:

  • Atherosclerosis
  • Cataract
  • Stroke
  • Trigeminal Nerve Inflammation
  • labyrinthitis
  • Meningitis
  • Ear infection
  • Multiple sclerosis
  • Syphilis

It should be noted that this list is not exhaustive, it is therefore advisable to contact your doctor if the symptom persists

Tinnitus, when to go to your doctor?

It is good to go to the doctor when tinnitus occurs following one of the pathologies related to it. It is equally important to seek consultation with the specialist if the disorder appears after a severe trauma.
