Tinnitus is an unsettling, nagging condition identified by ringing in the ears. Hidden Hearing, Ireland’s most trusted hearing care provider offers education, treatment and hope for those who live with tinnitus.

Common Causes

Tinnitus is often a result of everyday activities we don’t consider dangerous. Too much caffeine or alcohol can cause the brain to be over stimulated, when this occurs there are sometimes spikes in blood pressure and anxiety, which may create ringing in the ears. Excessive noise or loud music is another culprit and can also cause hearing problems and ear strain with the risk of permanent damage. Pain is another possible common trigger. Should you suffer a head injury, visit a doctor immediately. Without recognising it, you may have sustained injuries that affect the inner ear. Even something as simple as accumulated wax in the ear can be responsible for tinnitus. Remember, tinnitus is an indicator, not an illness, and can be caused by injury, medications (especially antibiotics or large amounts of aspirin,) dental problems and vascular or nerve disorders.
