It is a common event for all night owls in all cities of the world. After a few hours of drinking and partying at a nightclub or concert, return home with a ringing or ringing in your ears. As normally happens after a night on the town, don’t think about it and go to bed. it will most likely go away in a few hours, as it always does.
In this particular case, however, the ringing does not go away, it has remained constant. Your hearing is now somewhat distorted. While not painful, that constant muffled sound, which sounds like the professor’s voice in the “Peanuts” cartoon specials, gets a little boring. You hurt your ears. You have mild tinnitus.
Although most cases are temporary and last from a few hours to a few days, tinnitus is one of the most common causes of hearing problems in the United States. It is estimated that 50 million people suffer from this disease. There are a variety of reasons for this other than just listening to loud music, many of which are medical and health related. These sources include allergies, diabetes, head or neck injuries, and medications such as antibiotics and sedatives. Even high consumption of sugar, salt or alcohol can cause illness. The real symptoms of tinnitus can be ear infections, extra earwax, or even hearing loss.
Although many cases are temporary, as mentioned earlier, a wide range of treatments are available to help lessen some of the effects of the condition. On a holistic and natural level, herbs such as Ginkgo Balboa or Hawthorn can help people with tinnitus as well as acupuncture, magnetic field therapy or even aromatherapy. Even sound therapy is used with soothing noises such as rain and wind noises to distract those affected from the constantly disturbing noises that result from the disease.
In severe cases, hearing aids are still a good way to correct actual hearing loss. After a test or medical examination, most doctors recommend a specific model or aid that a person can examine and purchase to improve their general hearing.
Although the disease seems inevitable, there are ways to avoid tinnitus or other future ear problems, as many health and environmental issues are considered to be possible causes. The first step is simply to take care of yourself and your health. Eat a balanced diet and exercise frequently, as most of the causes cited were medical.
Also avoid visiting nightclubs, pubs, or concerts where playing loud music is almost always a sure thing. Reducing visits to these places will most likely reduce future hearing problems. Not to mention that turning down the volume on your iPod or MP3 player while listening to music or avoiding headphones is another great tactic overall.
Whatever techniques or tactics you use to protect your ears, the most important thing is to see a doctor if a problem arises and persists. The last thing you want is to go deaf and see a doctor to identify a potential problem before it gets worse, it’s the best action you can take. It’s always better to be on the safe side.
