Ringing Sound In My Ear

Tinnitus sort of creeps up on us. We think we are healthy and active. Then one night when we are trying to go to sleep, we hear these awful noises in our ears. Some people hear the noise in only one ear, but others hear noise in both ears. The noise is called Tinnitus. Ringing Sound In My Ear

Sometimes the noise sounds like a ticking clock, or the wind rushing in at a car window. Sometimes the noise is a ringing sound, or even buzzing. Someone has described the noise like crickets chirping.

These noises are very irritating, but they are the body's alarm system that tells us something has gone wrong and we need to fix the problem. And, the problem can be fixed, if we know what it is and treat it properly.

Each of us who hear those noises have wondered why they are in our ears or where did they come from. There are many causes for the noise in our ears. Listening to loud music is one cause. Spending too much time in a loud environment, such as factory can cause the noise we hear at night.

Loud noises can cause trauma to the ears. Those loud noises leave lasting damage and the noise becomes more irritating when your house gets quiet, like when you are trying to go to sleep.

A bump on the head can trigger Tinnitus. Not every time we bump our head will we go to the doctor. Sometimes we consider the bump to have no consequence at all. But even a slight bump can be a trigger. Ringing Sound In My Ear

Over stimulating the brain can bring on Tinnitus. By this I mean drinking too much caffeine or alcohol.

Some other known triggers are anxiety and depression. When we are anxious or depressed, the stress level jumps up and so does the blood pressure, and then so does the noise in the ears.

The most common contributor to ringing in the ears, or Tinnitus, is believed to be stress. And, each of us knows that what is a stressful situation to one would be a cake walk for another. Stress is highly individualized. Only you can identify the stress points in your life.

Of course, we want to get rid of those noises, that ringing, buzzing, chirping, clicking, or whatever we hear when our environment goes quiet. To get rid of it, we have to know what it is. With a problem that has so many possible causes, we already know the fix, or cure, will be a multiple pronged approach.

If you are ready to tackle your Tinnitus problem it is critical to identify as many of the causes as you can and begin to work on them, one at a time. For instance, you can relieve some stress by just taking a walk. There is something wonderfully therapeutic about filling the lungs to capacity with fresh, cool air.

As you work on the cure for your Tinnitus, realize that the cure will come, but it will not be a quick fix. Do not become discouraged. Instead mark each victory, or each indication of relief that you see. Be patient. Healing will come to you if you do not give up. Ringing Sound In My Ear
