How can I deal with moderate tinitus?

Dealing w/ tinnitus: How you deal with tinnitus depends on your hearing level. If you have significant hearing loss and a hearing aid is indicated, you will find that the tinnitus becomes less noticeable. I also encourage patients to reduce stress by exercising regularly and getting plenty of sleep. If tinnitus disrupts sleep, talk to your ENT about coping strategies. ...Read more

Nerve Injury: The chronic exposure to intense, loud noise trauma has likely caused sensorineural hearing loss (SNHL). You need to protect your ears from loud noise using ear plugs. You also need to follow with your ENT for surveillance audiograms. You can decrease your tinnitus by using a hearing aid specific to your frequency loss. ...Read more

Patting head with hands using moderate force provides relief from this high pitch tinnitus I've been having. But am I risking mild concussion?

Patting head with hands using moderate force  provides relief from this high pitch tinnitus I've been having. But am I risking mild concussion?

Not even close: You wouldn't be able to concuss yourself if you had the strength of a mastodon! That's because by pressing on your head you're simply activating pressure receptors and pain receptors in your scalp. You're not causing a sudden deceleration of the brain in the cranial vault which is what is needed to cause a concussion. BTW, I'm sure you'd be a very attractive mastodon. Happy Valentine's Day! ...Read more

I have mild tinnitus and moderate vertigo. Scan shows ​Prominent AICA branches extending into both internal auditory canals. Implication/treatment?

I have mild tinnitus and moderate vertigo. Scan shows ​Prominent AICA branches extending into both internal auditory canals. Implication/treatment?

Controversial cause: although the labyrinthine artery, which is a branch of the anterior cerebral artery supplies the middle ear, whether prominence of this artery can cause ringing in the ears is controversial. I would make sure there is not another cause for the tinnitus. such as hearing loss due otosclerosis or hardening of the little bones that conduct sound or some other problem. ...Read more

Could moderate to severe stenosis in cervical and thoracic spine cause pain, weakness in the upper arm, dizziness and tinnitus when stretChing my neck?

Could moderate to severe stenosis in cervical and thoracic spine cause pain, weakness in the upper arm, dizziness and tinnitus when stretChing my neck?

Some advice: Although your symptoms could be prompted by cervical stenosis or even nerve pinching at the foraminal outlet, the dizziness, and tinnitus, makes me wonder about co-morbidities, and would think of inner ear issues, but also vascular problems, such as subclavian steal syndrome. Find a neurologist who is open to investigating this more thoroughly. ...Read more

Remedies to reduce tinitus?

Remedies to reduce tinitus?

Tinnitus relief: There are few remedies clearly proven to reduce tinnitus. If hearing loss is sufficient, the use of hearing aids may "mask" the tinnitus sensation. Background noise such as radio or fan in the bedroom can serve the same purpose. Elimination of drugs such as Aspirin or Lasix (furosemide) which may cause tinnitus can help, too. I would be wary of "tinnitus relief" medications, as little data supports them. ...Read more
