What is tinnitus?
In medical jargon, tinnitus describes noises that are commonly called “ringing in the ears”, “ringing in the ears” or “ringing in the ears”. The ringing noise in tinnitus can be very different. The sound can be beeping, whistling, ringing, rustling, rattling or hissing, for example. It can occur evenly or pulsating, persistent or phased, one-sided or in both ears.
Tinnitus can basically occur at any age, but is most common in people between the ages of 40 and 50.
Tinnitus is not a disease in its own right, but a symptom that can have many causes. In some of those affected, no physical cause can be found for the noise in the ear, which is why a psychological component becomes more important in these cases.
What can trigger noises in the ears?
Presumably around 30 percent of the noises in the ears are the result of excessive noise, such as those caused by music concerts, headphones that are set too loud or loud machines. Other possible causes are:
Bang trauma (explosion, loud bang)
Changes in pressure (air travel, diving)
Sudden hearing loss
Ossification of the inner ear
Middle and inner ear infections
Circulatory disorders of the inner ear
Drum skin defects
Ear wax or foreign objects in the ear
inherited, acquired or age-related hearing loss
Acoustic neuroma (benign tumor that narrows the auditory nerve)
Meniere’s disease (vertigo)
Cervical spine problems
Problems in the tooth and jaw area
Stress, fear, excessive demands and other emotional stress
Medication side effects
Cardiovascular, metabolic or hormonal disorders
traumatic brain injury
To ensure that the tinnitus is not caused by a serious medical condition, a doctor should be consulted if the tinnitus is persistent.
