Over 50 million Americans have tinnitus symptoms. Of these around 12 million seek medical help, and, about 2 million are unable to function properly due the severity of their tinnitus symptoms. Treatment normally consists of drug-based medication, hearing aids / audio maskers, biofeedback, counselling, etc. But still 93% of sufferers never experience relief from their tinnitus symptoms.
There are 2 types of tinnitus: subjective and objective tinnitus. Subjective tinnitus is by far the most common and is used to describe the situation where only the tinnitus sufferer hears the sounds. Even with a special audio instrument a doctor cannot hear them. But objective tinnitus is where both the sufferer and the doctor can hear the sounds.
Tinnitus symptoms vary from person to person, but are described as being, hissing, whooshing, knocking, humming, clicking, ticking, booming, etc. Although these are normally referred to as the symptoms of tinnitus, they really are the symptoms of some other problem or condition. In other words tinnitus is not really a medical condition at all, it is just the symptom of some underlying problem.
Some of the sources of these problems that cause tinnitus are, inner ear / auditory nerve damage, noise-damaged hearing, head trauma, whiplash, meniere's disease, otosclerosis, blocked eustachian tube, hypertension, allergies, stress.
Mainstream treatment using drugs and / or audio maskers, etc. mainly try to reduce or mask the symptoms. Things like counselling and support groups try to help you cope with your tinnitus symptoms. But the key is to address the underlying conditions.
Which is why more and more sufferers are searching for more natural remedies and techniques, such as Ginkgo biloba which helps improve blood flow to the brain. And there are others like cutting-out / reducing salt, alcohol and caffeine intake to lower blood pressure. Plus, of course, reducing stress through a daily exercise regime and other special techniques. There are a lot more to find out about and to try out.
