||Tinnitus is when one feels sounds in the ear or head when there is no stimulation of sound from the exterior. Tinnitus can be in the form of variety of sounds like the buzzing of the flies, howling of wind, mechanical sounds, and sound of the pulse.
Tinnitus can occurs due to an over sensitive nervous system connected with other nerve pathway that detects the sound which goes along the inner ear, auditory nerve and cerebral auditory cortex. The common cause of tinnitus can be the damage of the inner hair cells due to noise and certain chemical and the aging of the auditory cell.
As for the tinnitus that caused by high pressure, arteriosclerosis, heart disease, vascular malformation, vascular tumor, anemia, thyroid disease, diabetes and muscle spasms, problems in temporomandibular area and neck, appropriate treatment can alleviate or cure it.
Tinnitus can also be caused by the earwax or foreign body in outer ear, traumatic perforation of tympanic membrane, exudative otitis media, and acute otitis
media. Rarely, it can appear as an early symptom of an acoustic tumor or brain tumor, and it can also be caused by vascular malformation, arteriovenous malformation, venous noise and muscle contraction. These cases should be seen by ENT specialist or neurologist.
