The Sound From Nowhere

Tinnitus is best described as a perceived ringing in the ears. It is a common hearing-related problem that affects 1 out of 5 people. The most common cause of the disorder is inner ear cell damage that can trigger an electrical signal to your auditory nerve which goes to the brain.  Other causes of this disorder of the ear can be attributed to:

  • Age
  • Loud noise exposure
  • Shifts in ear bone
  • Earwax blockage
  • Inner Ear Disorders
  • Blood Vessel Disorders

Tinnitus is often the result of an event that can’t be prevented, but some precautions can be taken to help prevent certain types. Hearing protection such as earmuffs and earplugs can protect your ears around machinery, loud music, firearms, and other activities. Regular exercise and eating right also does a lot to help prevent blood vessel-related tinnitus.
