Stopping Ringing in the Ears: Tinnitus Treatment


Tinnitus

Every day we have patients contacting us and coming to see us because they are suffering from tinnitus. Tinnitus is a condition where one experiences ringing in the ears or other noises when no such external physical noise is present. The condition can be debilitating, so there is much interest on the internet in therapies, cures, and remedies. Below is a concise list of best things you can do to cure your tinnitus.

  1. Get a comprehensive hearing exam. This is the absolute best thing you can do. Tinnitus is usually caused by a problem in the hearing system; it is a symptom, not a disease.

  2. Earwax removal. This would be taken care of typically in a comprehensive hearing exam and often can relieve tinnitus symptoms in cases of impaction.

  3. Medical review. A review of your medications and other known underlying conditions should be performed. This also would be covered in a comprehensive hearing exam.

  4. Hearing Aids. In a large percentage of tinnitus cases, treating a hearing loss cures tinnitus altogether.
