What is Tinnitus

Causes of Tinnitus

Tinnitus can result from multiple causes. Some of the common causes are discussed below. Symptoms of tinnitus are often increased with consumption of certain foods or substances in an individual’s everyday diet. Other causes include age related and noise induced hearing loss, diseases of ear such as Meniere’s disease, increased fluid in the inner ear, impacted ear wax, teeth grinding, certain medications and physiological conditions.

Less common causes include Otosclerosis, which is a disorder that causes abnormal formation of new bone in the middle ear. It is relatively common among young women and is thought to be affected by pregnancy. Acoustic neuroma is a benign tumor and may develop on the hearing and balance nerves near the inner ear. There are other relatively rare conditions that can be diagnosed by medical tests and scans.

The link between the presence of hearing loss and tinnitus is strong, there is a correlation between the degree of hearing loss and severity of patient’s tinnitus.  Also, approximately 80% of tinnitus patients have some degree of reduction in their hearing
