Tinnitus = Ear Ringing

From the American Tinnitus Association, tips to diagnose & understand your tinnitus:

  1. DO NOT panic. Tinnitus is usually not a sign of a serious, ongoing medical condition.
  2. CHECK things out. The sounds you hear may actually be normal sounds created by the human body at work.
  3. SEE an audiologist or ear, nose and throat specialist (ENT) interested and experienced in tinnitus treatment.
  4. REVIEW your current medications (prescription, over-the-counter, vitamins and other supplements) with your medical professional to find possible causes of your tinnitus.
  5. BE WARY of a hopeless diagnosis or physician advice like, “There’s nothing you can do about your tinnitus. Go home and live with it.”
  6. BE a detective. Keep track of what triggers your tinnitus.
  7. KEEP UP TO DATE about tinnitus. More and more research by the best and the brightest is bringing us closer to successful treatments and cures for tinnitus.
