Tinnitus Questions:



  1. Can blockage of the ear's cause Tinnitus?

    Tinnitus can be caused from blockages of the ears due to a build up of wax in the Eustachian tubes. Blockages can also be caused by a sinus infection, which may lead to Tinnitus. Many Tinnitus cases occur after severe ear infections. But this may also be related to the use of ototoxic antibiotics.

  2. Why do we experience ringing in the ears?

    Stereocilia are hair cells that send messages to the brain about the different sounds entering your ears. When these little hairs are damaged they mistakenly tell your brain that you are hearing a sound even though there is no sound. Other causes of ringing in the ears can be when there is a build up of earwax, an ear infection, a middle ear disorder or even when your stereocillia can not function properly due to aging. 


  3. Can cell phones cause Tinnitus?

    Tinnitus can not be caused from every day use of your cell phone. In most cases Tinnitus is caused from high pitched sound, listening to loud sounds on a regular basis and ear infections which cause damage to your middle ear. There have been various studies conducted and no link has been found between Tinnitus and using your cellphone.

  4. Do you experience Tinnitus in one ear or both ear's?

    You can experience Tinnitus in one ear on in both ears and sometimes the sounds may even be heard in your head. When you only experience Tinnitus in one ear it is often a sign that there may be more damage to your middle ear and an abnormality of fluids in that one ear. Tinnitus is not experienced in the same way for everyone, some will hear whistling, ringing, humming, roaring, high pitched sounds or low pitted sound. The sound for some can be continuous and for others, it comes and goes.

  5. What can be done to lessen the severity of my Tinnitus?

    Avoid exposure to loud sounds, decrease your intake of salt and stimulates. Coffee, tea cola, and tobacco can also aggravate Tinnitus symptoms. Try to exercise daily, get enough rest to avoid becoming fatigued and wear ear protection when in environments where you will be exposed to loud noise you can reduce your risk of getting Tinnitus.


  6. How Will Tinnitus affect my life?

    Sleeping with Tinnitus

    One of the biggest challenges that a Tinnitus sufferer may have is the inability to get a good night's sleep due to the constant buzzing or ringing one hears.

  7. What are the more likely causes of Tinnitus?

    There are several main causes of Tinnitus. People that are exposed to loud noises frequently, such as guns, heavy construction, lawn mowers and loud music, are more prone to developing Tinnitus. A sudden blow to the head can also be a major contributor of Tinnitus. Even driving over a long distance, at a speed with your windows open has been known to cause Tinnitus. 

  8. Why does Tinnitus get worse at night?

    As night falls many of the daily sounds, such as the roaring engines of cars, subside and no longer mask the Tinnitus noise. This silence makes the Tinnitus sounds more pronounced. You also don't perform as many activities at night as you do in the day that may distract you from the less obvious sounds of your Tinnitus.

  9. Can allergies make you Tinnitus worse?

    Allergies can cause Tinnitus in some cases, were it is left untreated and can also aggravate Tinnitus symptoms.

    Specific foods may trigger Tinnitus. Problem foods include red wine, grain-based spirits, cheese and chocolate. One may complain of hearing tones after consuming honey. Similar foods are known to trigger migraine headaches; these foods include soy and anything including soy, very ripe bananas, avocados and citrus fruits.

    Foods Rich in Salicylates:

    There are many different types of foods and drinks are rich in salicylates, that can aggravate your Tinnitus:

    • Coffee and tea
    • Jam and honey
    • Many fruits, vegetables and nuts contain natural salicylates
    • Flavorings
    • Juice, beer and wine contain salicylates
    • Perfumes (can also aggravate Tinnitus)
    • Even certain medications contain salicylates, such as aspirin

    Aspartame:

    Some people believe that the artificial sugar substitute aspartame is linked to Tinnitus, Vertigo, and many other serious problems.

    Marijuana:

    Using Marijuana can actually worsen your existing Tinnitus.

Hyperacusis Questions:

  1. What is Hyperacusis?

    Hyperacusis is defined as a collapsed tolerance to normal environmental sounds. It is a rare hearing disorder whereby a person becomes highly sensitive to noise. Sometimes people think they have Hyperacusis because they are bothered by loud sounds like music, heavy equipment or sirens. This is not Hyperacusis as these sounds are loud to the normal ear. Individuals with Hyperacusis have difficulty tolerating sounds which do not seem loud to others, such as a pin dropping. The ears loses much of their normal dynamic range, and everyday noises or sounds become unbearable and painfully loud. Hyperacusis can affect people of all ages and is almost always accompanied by Tinnitus, an ailment that causes sufferers to hear constant ringing, buzzing or static.


  2. What causes Hyperacusis?

    Unfortunately, because Hyperacusis is so rare, little research has been done so little is known about it. The onset is usually caused by exposure to loud noise (either prolonged or a single episode) or a head injury. Some experts speculate that the cause is damage to the auditory nerves. Currently, a popular theory is that there has been a breakdown or dysfunction in the efferent portion of the auditory nerve. Efferent meaning fibers that originate in the brain which serve to regulate or inhibit incoming sounds.


  3. How rare is Hyperacusis?

    Although there may be as many as 1% of the population who are sound sensitive, Hyperacusis sufferers go well beyond the definition of sound sensitive and often can not tolerate their surroundings or even people's voices. Because the media has not publicized this disorder it is hard to get a handle on how rare Hyperacusis is, however, it may be that as little as one in every 50,000 people suffer daily with this condition.


  4. Why are outer hair cells (cilia) so important in the ears?

    The outer hair cells are extremely important as they are known to provide our ears with protection against excess noise and other potentially harmful entities. The cilia (outer hair cells) contract whenever our ears are exposed to any loud sounds or noise vibrations that have the potential to cause damage and pain to ones hearing system. This contraction of the fine hairs acts as a dynamic amplifier, controlling the vibration of each sound that enters our ear. If the cilia are damaged, excess noise will be able to enter our unprotected ears, causing pain.

Meniere's disease Questions:
  1. What is Meniere's Disease?

    Meniere's Disease  is a very serious condition of the inner ear, resulting in extended Vertigo attacks (dizziness and loss of balance), major hearing loss and frequent Tinnitus (ringing in the ears).

  2. Is Meniere's Disease hereditary?

    There are a few studies that have looked at this, and the answer is that in most cases hereditary factors do not play a part. In one Japanese study it was reported that 5.8% of patients had a close relative also with the disease. In British studies, a family history of the disease was observed in 5% of patients. One Swedish study puts the figure at 14%, BUT based on the overall findings it does not seem that Meniere's Disease is hereditary.

  3. Is Meniere's disease infectious?

    There is considerable interest in whether Meniere's Disease has viral origins. It has been suggested that periodic reactivation of a virus by factors such as stress may account for the recurrent episodes of Tinnitus symptoms. However, after extensive studies, there is still no strong evidence that a virus is involved.

  4. What are the symptoms for Meniere's Disease?

    If you suffer from Meniere's Disease you may feel a sensation of fullness and pressure in your ears. You may also experience hearing loss in one or both ears, which if not treated often results in Vertigo (dizziness and loss of balance) as well. Meniere's Disease is also usually accompanied by Tinnitus (ringing in the ears), which can last a few hours or even days.

  5. What should people with Meniere's Disease avoid and why?

    If you suffer with Meniere's Disease you should try to avoid or limit your intake of salt, caffeine and tobacco, as it can paralyze the hair like structures in your ear (cilia) that are responsible for mucus flow. If the mucus is not drained effectively it can create pressure in the ear which may lead to Meniere's Disease. You should also avoid alcohol and and extremely stressful situations. By avoiding some of these things you can help reduce stimulation as well as irritation to the inner ear that may cause damage to the cochlea (sensory organ responsible for our sense of hearing).

    Other tip: Try and avoid doing any out side activities such as riding a bicycle, motorcycle, playing base ball and doing in-line skating without a helmet. This will help you avoid any possible head injury's.
