Someone is talking about me. That’s what my mother used to say when my ears were ringing. Tinnitus or ear noises can be annoying. And you may be surprised to know that tinnitus can take many forms such as buzzing, whooshing, ticking, humming, music, even voices; the list is endless.
Don’t worry if this describes you because you are not alone. Millions of people experience tinnitus. And although there are many underlying triggers such as changes in blood pressure, medications, excessive caffeine, exposure to loud music or even ear wax, tinnitus remains a bit of a mystery.
Researchers are getting close to solving this puzzle. The American Tinnitus Association is your best resource for truthful information and facts. Please don’t waste your money on remedies that claim to help. And if you’ve been told there is nothing you can do to help your tinnitus, don’t believe it.
If you or a loved one experience tinnitus, make an appointment to see an audiologist. There’s a lot we can do to help.
