Tinnitus...constant ringing in my ears

by Arlene
(Edmonton, AB Canada)



I would like to know what causes tinnitus, a ringing in
the ears, and what treatments are available to heal
this symptom? I know of so many people with this
condition and yet there appears to be so little one can do for tinnitus.

Can you help me?

Thank You!


Hello Arlene,
That's because there is precious little that can be done. Little that's proved anyway.

It's worth having your doctor look in your ear, just in case it's full of wax, one of the causes. Also, if you're having popping or grating sounds in the jaw joint, or pain, it may be associated with a jaw joint problem which is then more treatable with chiropractic.

But if it's nerve damage, probably the most common cause, from certain drugs, loud music or other, occasionally MS, there's not much to be done.
