SHEFFIELD, England, April 6, 2022 (Newswire.com) - Some people (or their loved ones) experience a ringing sensation in their ears at some point in their lives that no one else can hear. While this may be just an outcome of exposure to long hours of loud music, it may also be due to an underlying issue called Tinnitus.
So, What exactly is Tinnitus and what causes it?
The first thing people need to understand is that it is not a disease but a symptom that indicates something wrong with the auditory system. In Tinnitus, one hears sounds even when there is no outside source of the sounds. The sounds can be in different forms (ringing, clicking, buzzing, roaring, whistling or hissing) and can be perceived as soft or loud. Something as simple as earwax blocking the ear can cause Tinnitus. But it can also be the consequence of several other health ailments, such as:
- Exposure to loud noises
- Ear and sinus infections
- Thyroid abnormalities
- Head injuries
- Side effects of medication
- Wax buildup in the ear
- Problems of the heart, blood vessels, neck, jaw or teeth
For some people, Tinnitus is an issue that builds up slowly. For others, it can show up quite suddenly. It can be a temporary discomfort for most people, but unfortunately, it becomes a constant problem for some.
Treatment for Tinnitus
While psychological interventions or talking therapies such as Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) can help lessen the distress, to this date, no drug or therapy is effective enough to cure this condition. However, there are new medical devices like Lenire (a breakthrough treatment device for Tinnitus) that can help alleviate the suffering from Tinnitus. Talking about Lenire, Peter Byrom, a ThreeBestRated® award-winning audiologist from Sheffield, UK, shares, "Lenire is a non-invasive medical device for treating Tinnitus that uses bimodal neuromodulation to treat the symptoms.
It delivers mild electrical pulses to the tongue, combined with sound played through headphones to drive long-term changes or neuroplasticity in the brain to treat Tinnitus. The device is fitted and used per a tailored treatment plan prescribed by an appropriately qualified healthcare professional, similar to Peter Byrom.
