You’re Not the Only One
If you’re struggling with tinnitus, you’re not the only one. It’s estimated that 1 out of every 5 people hear the buzzing or hissing sounds caused by tinnitus day-after-day, right alongside you.
It’s Not Just Your Ears
Tinnitus affects your hearing and concentration mainly, but it could affect you in ways such as depression, fatigue, stress, and anxiety. These are all common symptoms among those who struggle with tinnitus, and can often result in a lower quality of life.
You Can Take Control
There are many causes of tinnitus, but it can be difficult to pinpoint exactly what is inducing the ringing. Tinnitus is often traced back to an issue with the mouth or jaw. Chronic tinnitus, in cases like these, can produce symptoms that can be completely and permanently resolved with treatment.
Symptoms of Tinnitus
Tinnitus most often presents itself in noises. Anything from a low tone of hissing, buzzing, clicking, or ringing up to a painful volume can be effects of tinnitus.
In most cases, the sound is not “real” and is an issue with the auditory nerves that send messages to the brain. Those messages stimulate the brain to hear what it’s not actually hearing.
What Triggers Tinnitus?
Several factors can cause tinnitus like overexposure to loud noise, earwax buildup, natural hearing loss from age, or medication side effects.
Your Jaw Could Be the Culprit
Over 260 pounds of force can be generated by the jaw at the back of the mouth by the molars. If this delicate pressure is not balanced perfectly, your jaw’s muscles, tendons, nerves, and ligaments can undergo serious damage.
Where your jaw connects to the side of your head is called the temporomandibular joint, or TMJ. Being one of the most complex joints in your body, it has a special structure and tissue makeup. Disruptions of balance can often lead to symptoms like tinnitus.
How to Treat Tinnitus?
Tinnitus is treated in different ways. One way is to use white noise. White noise machines help cover the sounds from tinnitus at night, and there are masking devices that can be worn throughout the day to produce a similar low noise that would help cover up tinnitus symptoms.
There are some cases in which medication, such as tricyclic antidepressants or alprazolam, can suppress the symptoms of tinnitus. But, side effects and the potential for habit-forming do come as risks.
