Phoenix, AZ -- (ReleaseWire) -- 09/05/2013 -- A rather uncommon auditory problem, ear tinnitus has surprisingly affected almost 50 million Americans as of this year. A report from the American Tinnitus Association reveals that most of the sufferers of ear tinnitus are adults and have had exposure to loud noise for a prolonged period of time.
Tinnitus is classified as recurring ringing, hissing, or buzzing in the ear, which is not coming from external surroundings. The condition may not be painful, but can cause persisting discomfort to the person suffering from it. Research conducted on ear tinnitus pointed out that the sound originates from the mid-ear section, and may last for a couple of weeks to several years.
"It's one tricky condition. Some people manage to get rid of it without using any tinnitus cure, while others have to deal with the discomfort for as long as it lasts despite administering various treatments," said Janice Stark of Inner Ear Tinnitus.
Treatment for tinnitus had been elusive throughout the years, with no specific treatment working for everyone. Stark further explained that the causes of tinnitus, like its treatments, can vary from person to person. "It took me almost four trial treatments to finally stop ringing in my ears," she shared.
Although exposure to noise has been identified as one of the common causes of tinnitus, medical experts have also expanded the list of possible factors that may trigger the condition. Among the top triggers are earwax buildups, medications especially those involving antibiotics and aspirin, nerve problems, and sudden diet change. Once triggered, it is when the person starts to hear a ring or hiss in varying intervals.
Without proper treatment, the inner ear noise caused by tinnitus can last for as long as 10 years, which is seen to significantly affect a person’s quality of life. However, researchers also welcome the possibility of getting rid of tinnitus naturally, given the proper diagnosis of what caused it.
"Considering the many possible causes of tinnitus, we can't just settle for one treatment as it may only make the condition worse," Stark said, warning that prolonged cases of it may lead to permanent hearing loss.
On www.innereartinnitus.net, Stark details some of the early signs and symptoms of inner ear tinnitus, and the natural ways of getting rid of it. Several tinnitus cure options can also be found on the Inner Ear Tinnitus website, which is geared towards psychologically and medically assisting people who are suffering from this auditory condition.
