Tinnitus can present itself differently across individuals. The most common form of tinnitus is a high pitch ringing sound. Tinnitus can also be expressed as a humming, buzzing, pulsating, chirping, song-like, etc noise that is heard subjectively. Rarely, there have been cases where tinnitus has been heard and recorded by clinicians or researchers.
There are a variety of reasons that you may be experiencing tinnitus. This could be from noise exposure, hearing loss, middle ear infections or obstructions, TMJ, head or neck trauma, medications, caffeine, alcohol, tonic water, smoking, and a large number of health disorders.
If you have tinnitus, you should be evaluated by an Audiologist yearly. At MedRx Hearing Center we perform a full evaluation and document current level of tinnitus. We track any changes noted by patients to create a profile of how it is affecting each patient. MedRx Hearing Center also provides counseling and treatment options to help patients alleviate the stress that can develop from tinnitus.
