While there is no cure for tinnitus, there are ways to treat it and sometimes get rid of the aggravating noises you hear. Tinnitus is often caused by certain medical conditions.Treating the medical condition will sometimes alleviate tinnitus altogether so it’s always a good idea to look into possible medical causes first. If you have suddenly started hearing a ringing or buzzing in your ears, go to your doctor and get a complete physical to first all determine if you do have a medical condition contributing to the noises that you hear in your ears. All cures for tinnitus begin with understanding the cause. If you can get to the root cause of the tinnitus, you have a much greater chance of treating it. If you are over the age of 60, you should know that aging can cause a breakdown in the auditory cells in the inner ear that will cause ringing in the ears and unfortunately, there isn’t a cure for this. We all must face some physical drawbacks when we start to get older and tinnitus sometimes falls into that category. Say you worked around loud machinery or you have been exposed to some other kinds of loud noises… this could be the cause of your tinnitus.
Did you know that almost 90% of those experiencing tinnitus have some kind of noise induced hearing loss? Keeping the noise down will help alleviate the symptoms of tinnitus and protect your hearing capabilities as well. If you have high blood pressure, thyroid problems, otosclerosis, or any other medical condition, you may be able to ‘cure’ your tinnitus by treating these medical conditions.
