10 Causes Of Ringing in Ears
Tinnitus, or ringing in the ears, isn’t a disease in itself, but instead, a symptom of an underlying condition. In most cases, the exact causes of tinnitus are never found. A common cause might be the damage of inner ear hair cell which allows random electrical impulses to get in your brain, causing ringing in your ears. Besides, other possible causes include chronic health conditions, other ear problems or injuries or conditions that affect the nerves in your ear.
According to many patients, the sound is not only ringing but also buzzing, roaring, clicking, hissing or whooshing. It can have a massive impact on the quality of someone’s life, causing anxiety, depression, and a loss of concentration. Though most patients tolerate tinnitus well, about 1 to 2 percent of them are significantly impaired by the ringing. Scroll down to check out some of the potential causes of ringing in the ears below.
Ringing In Ears Cause #1: Noise
Loud noise from the environment you’re in, such as from chain saws, heavy equipment, and firearms will damage your hair cell, thus leading to tinnitus. This can happen as a result of being exposed to loud noises over long periods gradually or exposure to deafening noise over a short period. Therefore, if you’re exposed to a noisy environment, you should absolutely wear ear protection.
