A common condition that many people experience, tinnitus can cause partial hearing loss and ringing in your ear. Cases of tinnitus vary from slight to severe. Slight cases can involve a temporary light ringing or buzzing sound accompanied by a decrease in outside noise, while several cases can interfere with the sufferer's ability to sleep of function as they experience constant loud ringing, whining, or even perceived human voice sounds.
The small amount of research on this subject yields minimal results, and the causes of tinnitus are many and varied. Some commonly believed causes include: neurological damage, ear wax build-up, emotional stress, ear infections, foreign objects in the ear, allergies that influence fluid drain in the nasal passages, certain medications, and exposure to loud noise are a few of the causes known. This condition affects 10% -15% of people on average. There are no effective medications to treat it, and the few treatments that exist will often dull the symptoms temporarily, but will not provide a full recovery.
Some of the causes of mild tinnitus can be treated at home. If there is a build-up of wax, there are homeopathic ways to clear wax, most commonly pouring hydrogen peroxide in the ear then draining, and once the wax has been cleared out the tinnitus should subside. Allergy-induced tinnitus may be eliminated by taking preventative measures such as allergy medication or clearing up the sinuses to prevent problems with fluid drain or build-up.
The most commonly blamed cause for tinnitus is exposure to loud noises, which can cause a damaged cochlea. Any sudden burst of noise, such as a gunshot or foghorn, can cause this kind of damage to the ear and create conditions for tinnitus. However, prolonged or consistent loudness, such as being too close to live music, or listening to headphones at a high volume, can also cause the lasting damage that is a cause for tinnitus.
If you are suffering from partial hearing loss and ringing in your ear, then it is likely that you are a victim of tinnitus. For most people this starts as a dulling of hearing sensations in one ear, followed by a whine, buzz or whistle that lasts for a prolonged period of time. This often happens to newly afflicted tinnitus sufferers during the night, often causing them to wake up and search for a cause for the noise. In more severe cases, or as the tinnitus progresses and gets worse, these noises can last at all hours of the day and night, causing sleep deprivation, irritability, and an impairment to function properly during the day. The sounds can also vary from a whine or buzz, a sound like crickets, whooshing or roaring sound of wind, ticking, clicking, or many other variations including that of human voices. This tend to be extremely disconcerting and uncomfortable for the tinnitus sufferer.
