FAQs About Tinnitus: Understanding and Managing Tinnitus

Lee Rogers and Pete Aylett | Moor Hearing | Hearing Services

Tinnitus, commonly described as ringing in the ears, can be a persistent and often frustrating condition affecting daily life. At Moor Hearing, we understand the challenges faced by those experiencing tinnitus and are dedicated to providing effective solutions and support. 

This blog answers some frequently asked questions about tinnitus and outlines the treatment options available through our services.

What is Tinnitus?

Tinnitus is the perception of noise or ringing in the ears when no external sound is present. It can manifest as ringing, buzzing, hissing, or whistling sounds, and may be temporary or chronic. 

While it is often associated with hearing loss, there are many potential causes, including ear infections, exposure to loud noises, and certain medications.

What Causes Tinnitus?

The exact cause of tinnitus is often difficult to determine. However, it can be associated with:

  • Age-related hearing loss
  • Exposure to loud noise
  • Earwax blockage
  • Ear bone changes
  • Meniere’s disease
  • TMJ disorders
  • Head or neck injuries
  • Certain medications such as aspirin, antibiotics, and diuretics

Is Tinnitus a Sign of Something Serious?

In most cases, tinnitus is not indicative of a serious medical problem. However, if it is accompanied by hearing loss or dizziness, it’s important to consult a healthcare professional.

Can Tinnitus Be Cured?

Currently, there is no definitive cure for chronic tinnitus, but there are several treatments that can help manage the condition and reduce its impact on your life. At Moor Hearing, we offer a range of options tailored to your specific needs.
