What is Tinnitus?

tinnitus ear 2 300x199 - What is Tinnitus?Tinnitus ear is simply a medical term used to refer to ringing sounds that suddenly occur within the ears, even though there are no natural sounds occurring around you – no one but you can hear the irritating ringing sounds. 1 in 5 people are affected by tinnitus ear, and it usually indicates that there is an inner ear infection, damage to the ear bone, and maybe more.

There are two types of ear tinnitus that can affect you:

  • Subjective tinnitus
  • Objective tinnitus

Of the two types of tinnitus ear, subjective tinnitus is the most common form.

Subjective vs Objective Tinnitus

Subjective tinnitus can only be heard by you. In other words, the annoying ringing sound you are hearing is not heard by anyone else nor is it from an external source. Subjective tinnitus indicates that there may be an infection in the inner, middle and outer ear. When this happens, it affects the auditory nerves in the brain tinnitus ear 3 300x210 - What is Tinnitus?which help to interpret nerve signals into what you hear. With subjective tinnitus, something is confusing the auditory nerves into hearing something that is not there.

Objective tinnitus is a less common condition that is associated with damage or alterations to the middle ear bone. While you can hear the ringing and annoying popping and cracking sounds, so can your doctor. The sounds are usually due to changes in the blood vessels and muscles contracting.

All in all, ear tinnitus can be annoying and inconvenient, but have no fear, it is not a serious or life-threatening condition.

While there may not be a 100% cure for tinnitus, it can be treated effectively and can be treated quickly once the cause is realized and the symptoms recognized.
