Title: Tinnitus Symptoms

Tinnitus Research
  • The Importance Of Tinnitus Research

Tinnitus Research
  • Life is Gods gift and every-body wants to
    enjoy it but sometimes we are
  • faced with some problems which make us enjoy
    our lives less. One of
  • these problems is tinnitus.

About Tinnitus Research
  • When doing Tinnitus research we come to know
    that it is the awareness of a ringing, hissing,
    buzzing, or roaring sound in one or both ears.
  • It may continuous or occasional, can be in
    breaks or steady and can range in harshness from
    a soft buzz to the loud ring. Normally it is not
    so strange but in some cases tinnitus is severe
    enough to interfere with day to day activities.
  • Tinnitus research tells us it is more common
    in men than women and it becomes more advanced
    and common with aging. Although tinnitus can be
    annoying, it is not normally a sign of a serious
    problem. There are many ways to facade and adapt
    to symptoms to reduce the impact of tinnitus on
    daily life. Thats why Tinnitus research is so

Tinnitus Research and its causes
  • Tinnitus research proved that it can be
    arising in the inner ear, the middle ear, the
    outer ear or by abnormality in the brain.
  • Sometimes tinnitus is caused by damages to
    the tiny hairs on the auditory cells within the
    inner ear.
  • While the cells are stressed or damaged, they
    change their signals they send to the brain.
  • Sometimes it produces a noise heard only by
    the patient. Damages to the hair cell can be a
    result of aging or it can happen after
    experiencing a very loud noise, certain
    medication, injury, or a disease.
  • Sometimes damage is provisional but the
    noise becomes permanent.

Tinnitus Research and its causes
  • Another cause is damage to the microscopic
    ending of hearing nerve in inner ear.
  • Advancing in age is generally accompanied by
    a certain hearing nerve impairment and as a
    result chronic tinnitus.
  • A few times tinnitus can be the result of
    problems not relevant to the hearing system.
  • Disordering in the jaw joint, severe anxiety
    and neck injury can cause tinnitus.

Tinnitus Research and its causes
  • After tinnitus research, we have come to
    know there are a lot of auditory problems which
    can lead to hearing loss as well as tinnitus.
  • These include use of certain medications,
    tumors within the auditory system, stiffening of
    bones in the middle ear, blood vessels or
    neurological disorders, and inherited or genetic
    inner ear disorders.
  • Some medications like aspirin and diseases
    of the inner ear can cause tinnitus.
  • Tinnitus research tells it can in very
    exceptional situations be a symptom of too
    serious problems as aneurysm or a brain tumor.

Tinnitus Research and its causes
  • American Tinnitus Association as well as
    Deafness Research UK providing great support in
    funding and researching.
  • The Center Researchers and UB department of
    Communicative Disorder Sciences are playing
    leading role in tinnitus research.
  • A PET scan also supports tinnitus research
    for getting results of the brain that can show
    changes in blood flow.

Tinnitus Research and its causes
  • Tinnitus researchers bring out that some
    tinnitus and head noise is normal.
  • If a patient goes into a sound proof room and
    normal outside noise is diminished, he becomes
    conscious of these normal sounds.
  • We are normally not aware of these body
    sounds because outside noises mask them.
  • Something, such as ear wax or foreign body in
    external ear that blocks these background sounds
    can cause us to be more aware of our head sounds.

Tinnitus Research What to do?
  • It is a must for anyone with tinnitus to be
    evaluating to ensure condition and other
    specialized test may be recommended.
  • Hearing tests could help to provide more
    information, such as brain imaging by MRI as well
    as CT scans may be advised depend upon the
    results of medical history and physical
