What is Ear Ringing?
Ear ringing, also known as tinnitus, is a condition that causes ringing, buzzing, difficulty hearing, or a general sensitivity to sound. Ear ringing is a fairly common condition, but that doesn’t mean it can’t cause significant discomfort and inconvenience. Moderate to severe cases of tinnitus can cause hearing difficulties and may interfere with work or sleep.
In order to effectively treat tinnitus, it must be properly diagnosed. At Bakersfield Sinus Center, we offer tinnitus diagnosis and treatments to help patients find relief.
How is Ear Ringing Diagnosed?
Ear ringing and its symptoms are fairly easy to connect to tinnitus. However, there are a handful of conditions that can lead to tinnitus, which may need to be treated before ear ringing can be relieved. For this reason, it can be difficult to self-diagnose tinnitus. If you are experiencing any of the symptoms listed above, we recommend visiting a medical professional to receive an accurate diagnosis and ensure that you receive the proper treatment.
Ear ringing can be caused by colds, head injuries, a buildup of ear wax, and many other conditions. When you visit Bakersfield Sinus Center, we assess your symptoms and perform an examination to determine the source of your tinnitus. Once we determine the primary cause, we can recommend a treatment that will work for you.
How is Ear Ringing Treated?
The treatment of your tinnitus will depend on your diagnosis.
If your ear ringing is caused by other conditions such as a cold or a buildup of ear wax, we will recommend a treatment that will address these conditions directly. For example, ear wax removal can address excess ear wax to provide quick relief.
If your ear ringing is caused by an underlying issue in the ears, we may recommend a treatment like eustachian tuboplasty or a eustachian tube balloon. These treatments will depend on your particular condition, but they can address abnormalities in the ears and ear canals to alleviate symptoms and restore optimal function to your ears.
Can Ear Ringing Be Completely Cured?
At Bakersfield Sinus Center, our goal is to help you achieve an improved quality of life by providing long-term relief from tinnitus. However, the cause of your ear ringing will determine the extent and duration of the results you are able to achieve.
If your ear ringing is caused by excess ear wax, ear wax removal can quickly and effectively alleviate your symptoms and provide lasting relief. To prevent ear ringing from developing in the future, we recommend maintaining good ear hygiene habits.
If your tinnitus is caused by abnormalities in the ears, our advanced ear surgery techniques can alleviate your symptoms and help you achieve long-lasting relief. Unless you suffer from an injury or infection in the future, these result should be permanent.
