What if I have the noise / ringing in the ears?
diseases caused by noise or ringing in the ears compulsorily treated under medical supervision. It is therefore necessary to address immediately the appearance of tinnitus and hearing loss todoctor, because over time, hearing loss may progress to deafness. After several diagnostic procedures (inspection, kamertonalnye test, audiometry, MRI of the head), a specialist will appoint adequate treatment. Often, it is necessary to pass the course "droppers" lasting at least10 days. In some cases, intervention is necessary (removal of cerumen, surgery for damaged eardrum, otosclerosis).
If treatment for sensorineural hearing loss (cochlear neuritis) initiated within 3 days of the onset of the disease, then, as a rule, the hearing is fully restored, the noise goes away.If the duration of the disease more than a week, it is possible to restore not always one hundred percent of the hearing.Diseases of the prescription more than a month do not have much chance of a complete cure.There is evidence that could restore hearing and after 3 months of illness, but it is rather an exception than the rule.
There are a number of drugs, allegedly aimed at improving hearing.But it is important to know what to treat some disease need to know exactly all the features and diagnosis of the disease and the body of the sick.Therefore self categorically unacceptable.An adequate course of therapy such as cochlear neuritis consists of at least 4 drugs for intravenous and intramuscular injection plus tablet preparations.The most correct will be in the first few hours of the appearance of noise in the ears and hearing loss to see a specialist.
* Tinnitus in children
It turned out that the frequency of symptoms of tinnitus among children with normal hearing ranged from 6 to 36%, and in children with impaired hearing has been significantly higher.
Swedish scientists led by Kajsa-Mia Holgers (Sahlgrenska University Hospital, Göteborg) assessed the prevalence of tinnitus among 7-year-olds with normal and impaired hearing.
This tinnitus in 12% of children did not correlate with any disturbances in the inner ear, and in 2.5% of children ringing arose due to loud noise around (loud music, etc.) Thus, scientists have come to the conclusionthat tinnitus in children may have the same reasons as in adults.Accordingly these disorders prevention should be similar.
