When it comes to any hearing loss situations, the subject may be uncomfortable. Although these issues are very concerning, hearing loss occurs in thousands of people. Anyone can experience hearing deficiencies whether it is genetic or there are problems that arise later in life. One of the most common forms of ear pain and hearing issues is Swimmer’s Ear which is when pool water cloggs the ear. The Hearing Doctors (ENT Associates of South Florida) can diagnose a variety of hearing issues that people experience. One of the more frustrating problems is called Tinnitus which makes you hear a ringing noise. Tinnitus issues are affectign mroe and more people as they age.
Tinnitus issues can be very annoying to people who experience its symptoms. Usually, there are noises such as ringing, buzzing, and whistling that affect the way people with Tinnitus hear things. The noises can come and go but they can also be consistent and continuous. There are two different types of tinnitus which are subjective and objective. The main difference between the two is that with subjective tinnitus, only the patient can hear the noise and with objective tinnitus, a doctor can hear the noise with a stethoscope. The most common form of Tinnitus is subjective.
There are a variety of things that can cause Tinnitus issues such as age-related hearing loss, exposure to loud noises, and blockage in your ear from wax. These are just a few of the symptoms but Tinnitus can also be caused by other things such as:
- Meniere’s Disease- Tinnitus can indicate a future of Meniere’s Disease and can be caused by pressure in the inner ear.
- Head Injuries- Head injuries can affect the nerves in your brain causing hearing issues.
- Neck Injuries- The nerves in your neck are connected to your hearing and if there are injuries to these nerves, Tinnitus can occur. Usually, with these injuries, Tinnitus only occurs in one ear as opposed to both.
Zen And Tinnitus
Tinnitus is still being researched in depth but a cure has not yet been discovered. Although there is no cure, there is a way to treat it. An effective way to treat Tinnitus issues is by using ZEN. Zen is part of the Widex brand and helps people who are suffering from Tinnitus become more focused and relaxed. ZEN is offered in all Widex hearing products and uses the latest technologies. When you are listening to sound, it doesn’t repeat and is predictable which makes for a great listening experience and maximizes the use of ZEN. Unfortunately, there is no cure for Tinnitus but ZEN is made to help sufferers become bothered less and less by the noise as time goes on.
