Did you know that caffeine makes tinnitus worse?

How many times has it happened to you that for no reason do you have a ringing in the ear? This is called tinnitus, and it is very common to experience it in a mild way and in a short time; If you stay with the sound for several weeks you should visit a doctor.

According to the National Library of Medicine of the USA , tinnitus can also be a symptom of ear infection, cerumen, hearing loss due to loud noises (injury to the inner ear) or Meniere's disease, which is a disorder of the inner ear that produces vertigo.

Many of those affected try alternative therapies, most of them with unfavorable results, so it is recommended to consult with the specialist for a treatment that suits each need.

Ana Lilia Sánchez, specialist of Audiotech Audiological Institute explains that tinnitus, or tinnitus, can occur due to several factors such as jaw inflammation, chronic diseases, high blood pressure, diabetes, or problems directly of the inner ear; It is very important to identify the source to give an accurate medical diagnosis.

You can reduce the perception of tinnitus and reduce the annoying noise, but everything depends on the cause.

One way to do this is with hearing aids, such as Xino Tinnitus. It is responsible for masking the sound by placing it in a frequency and intensity different from the buzz and disguises it, making the brain stop perceiving it, explains Ana Lilia Sánchez.

 

There is a period in tinnitus that not only perceives sound, but the brain becomes more sensitive to it; by decreasing it helps the latter to give less attention ".

The audiologist highlights that an auditory aid whose main specification is to mitigate the hum, is only recommended when there is a hearing loss; It can not be adapted to a person who listens well and only suffers from tinnitus.

In a person with hearing loss, which in turn suffers from tinnitus, the hearing aid improves the perception of sound by the same loss, and therefore decreases the perception of tinnitus.
