Constant Ring in Ear[imwb_socialbuzz] By John On December 10, 2008 Under Ringing In Ears, T-Gone Tinnitus, Tinnitus Relief
This feeling or sensation of a constant ring in ear that seems to be bothering you is medically termed as tinnitus. It is the perception of a sound in one ear or sometimes in both ears even when there is no external sound that is actually happening.
Tinnitus is a hearing disorder. It is not a disease in itself. Instead, it should be thought of and treated as a symptom to a bigger problem or underlying medical condition. It has a higher probability that the underlying medical condition has got something to do with the auditory function since the ear is the main part that is affected.
When tinnitus results from spasm or painful reaction of one of the two muscles attached to the middle ear bones, or that of the Eustachian tube, then this is a case of muscular tinnitus. Muscular tinnitus is more of a subjective kind of tinnitus because once the muscles in the ear part or that of the neck are inflamed, it also leads to the inner ear being inflamed. When this happens, the sensation of ringing ears would be present, thus the symptom tinnitus.
Other forms of tinnitus would be pulsatile tinnitus, vascular tinnitus, and many others. The first one mentioned is termed as such because of the beating sound the same to that of the pulse. The latter is somehow the same since it mainly revolves around the veins and arterial parts of the body. These two and all the other kinds of tinnitus have one thing in common, and that is the effects or outcome of having such hearing disorder.
Tinnitus brings about stress. This is one of the most common effects of tinnitus. In some cases, tinnitus is chronic. This means that tinnitus attacks may come and go for a very long period of time. Because of such, this may well lead to depression and can make the experience of tinnitus or having to hear the ear ringing noises bothersome.
Because of such case, it is recommended that proper medical attention be given and tinnitus treatments or remedies such as antidepressants or anti-anxiety medications be considered. This is done so as to relieve the stress that comes from tinnitus.
