Your Ears Won't Stop Ringing...?

So, your ears won't stop ringing, huh? Well, you probably have tinnitus. What's tinnitus? How much time do you have? Because I have all day! Let's get into this!

Tinnitus is a symptom of something that you have probably done to your hearing, most likely unintentionally, but you've done it none the less. That is why your ears won't stop ringing! Because they are trying to tell you that whatever you are doing, you need to stop it ASAP!

There are many different causes of tinnitus and they include:

1. Noise-Induced hearing Loss(NIHL) - Basically this is exposing your ears to too much noise for extended periods of time. And its the number one cause of tinnitus! The blaring sirens, the loud music in the club, the loud music in the concert, the high volume of your cell phone, and the latest menace: the loud music coming from your Ipod!

2. Head injury - Any type of head injury can cause tinnitus as a side effect.

3. Certain Medications - Certain everyday household medications can cause tinnitus. These medications are known as ototoxic. Aspirin is one of those common household drugs that lists tinnitus as a side effect!

As you can see, the above list is just a small fraction of some of the causes of tinnitus. You have to narrow the causes down before you can try to treat it. You also have to know exactly what type of tinnitus that you have. In my post entitled "Natural Tinnitus Cures" I go over the types of tinnitus and some of the natural tinnitus cures that have been known to cure it. Check it out!

So there you have it. Causes and types of tinnitus all rolled up nice and tight for you! Your next course of action is to take action! You have to figure out which route that you want to take. You can either go the traditional route and see if your family doctor can prescribe something that can help you (which I'm sure that he/she will be able to do...) or you can check out some of the natural tinnitus cures that have been around for ages!

Those natural home remedies are the same ones that your grandmother told you about! And they have been known to manage or even cure your tinnitus! So, No, she wasn't crazy! Whatever route you decide to take, DO SOMETHING! Until next time!
