[imwb_socialbuzz] By John On March 8, 2011 Under Ringing In Ears

Every single part of our body plays different kinds of roles that are very important for us to survive. It is important to give each and every part the right amount of care it needs to function normally. When it comes to our ears, they do not only exist to hear sounds but they are also designed to keep our balance and body positioning. Thus, if it gets damaged, we do not only lose our sense of hearing but our body gets a little disoriented as well. Our ears are not as invincible as we think it is and one of the ear conditions that has been devastating the lives of many people for many years is Tinnitus or ringing in ear.

Tinnitus is when a person regularly hears an ear ringing, clicking, buzzing, chirping or roaring sound in the ear without any particular external source of the sound. This ear condition has puzzled professionals for many years and up to now; the cure for ringing in ear is still on the loose. It is known that Tinnitus is not a disease but rather a symptom of an underlying medical condition.

Some of these medical conditions include hearing loss, stress, hypertension, ear tumor, ear and sinus infections, Meniere’s disease and many others.

It may be true that Tinnitus does not have a cure but we can actually do several things to avoid it. First of all, you should start protecting yourself from everyday noise.
