Tinnitus is the term used to describe the condition of having ringing, buzzing, or noise in the ear or originating from the head. Tinnitus is often referred to as ringing in the ears. Many different things can cause tinnitus, although it is usually a symptom of an underlying condition. The treatment will depend on the condition that is causing it, the severity, and any accompanying issues such as hearing loss.
Common causes of tinnitus include:
Exposure to loud noises
Earwax buildup or blockages
Abnormal bone growth in the ear
Head or neck injuries
Benign tumor of the cranial nerve
In order to find out the root cause of your tinnitus, your hearing specialist will conduct a complete medical history, as well as a complete hearing examination.
What treatments are available for tinnitus?
Depending on the cause of your tinnitus and other factors, several treatments are available, including medical options as well as alternative therapies. Your doctor may refer you to a hearing specialist or an Ear, Nose and Throat Specialist (ENT) for further diagnosis and treatment.

“I am so pleased I ran into Amanda at Business After Hours and talked to her. I have had hearing aids for about five years. They never fit right or worked properly. I was ready to give up. Amanda and Amy got me set up with a pair of aids that not only work very well but fit great. I don’t even know I have them in! Their professional and pleasant attitudes will keep me coming back! The streamer for my cell phone and television are an added bonus. Thank you, thank you, thank you!”
