Tinnitus FAQs

What Is Tinnitus?

A common misconception surrounding tinnitus is that it’s a disease, but it is really a symptom of a neurological disorder characterized by persistent ringing in one or both ears that does not come from any external sound source.

Those who battle with tinnitus describe the sound they “hear” as ringing, whistling, hissing, buzzing, or pulsing sound is also possible. For most, these sounds come and go, but they can become an ongoing part of daily life, causing irritation, making it difficult to relax or concentrate, and even contributing to a loss of sleep.

What Causes Tinnitus?

A specific, identifiable cause for tinnitus has not been discovered as of yet, but there are a number of factors that typically lead to the condition, including

• prolonged exposure to noise
• various ototoxic drugs
• head trauma
• stress
• a blockage in the ear canal

Hearing loss often accompanies tinnitus, suggesting a connection to processing issues associated with the inner-ear, the auditory nerve, and the brain.

In rare cases, tinnitus is a symptom of a blood vessel disorder, resulting in pulsatile tinnitus. This type of tinnitus can come from a head or neck tumor, cholesterol buildup, hypertension, turbulent blood flow, or malformation of the capillaries surrounding the ear, which is recognized because the rhythm of the pulsing sounds tends to match your heartbeat.

What is involved in a tinnitus evaluation?

Because your tinnitus symptoms are personal and unique in nature, an in-depth evaluation is the first step in providing the relief you need using a specialized treatment plan that meets your specific needs.

Your audiologist will begin by identifying contributing factors to your condition as well as asking you to describe the specific symptoms you experience. Diagnostic testing will help rule out possible medical factors that could be causing or contributing to your tinnitus.

After identifying contributing factors to your condition and evaluating your specific symptoms, our tinnitus specialists at our clinic in Burien, WA, are able to use our expertise to reduce the impact of tinnitus on your daily life.
