Tinnitus Caused By Sinus Problems
There are several causes of tinnitus which include sinus and ear problems. Often the annoyance goes away once the infection is cured. Sinus infections are sometime associated with head noises which is caused by nasal congestion where the person is having hard time to breath. This is because the Eustachian tubes are blocked and the fluid build-up in the middle ear directly affecting the hearing nerve.
Because the mucous is too thick or gelatinous to drain out through the Eustachian tubes, a huge amount of pressure and fluid buildup is developed in the inner ear. When a bacteria and virus contaminates the fluids, the eardrum becomes inflamed causing severe pain in the ear and tinnitus.
Constant or unremitting sinus infection, allergies and other nasal problems cause what we call Type 3 tinnitus where the mucous in the ear becomes gooey. This may also be a result of prolonged medication to antibiotics and anti-histamines. Certain drugs such as antibiotics can be used treating inflammation and infection which offer relief but often the side effects offer even more grief.
Other factors that causes disproportionate amount of mucus buildup are allergies, smoke, air pollution, pollen, mold, or even fur from animal like dogs and cats. A person who is prone to allergies often experience stuffy or running noise and pressure in the forehead, between and behind the eyes depending in which sinuses are affected.
If you are suffering from this condition, there is an extremely effective remedy which may be taken. The remedy works to get rid of the mucous build-up allowing a possible passage to the Eustachian tubes and eliminate the pressure.It reduces the viscosity of the mucous, in simple terms it makes the mucous thinner, allowing it to drain out via the Eustachian tubes.
- As soon as the pressure is reduced, soon the tinnitus starts to disappear.
The remedy is made from natural homeopathic extracts therefore there is no need to worry because of side effects since there are none.
The sinuses are air-filled spaces in the skull (behind the forehead, nasal bones, cheeks, and eyes). Healthy sinuses contain no bacteria or other germs. Usually, mucus is able to drain out and air is able to circulate.
When the sinus openings become blocked or too much mucus builds up, bacteria and other germs can grow more easily.
Sinusitis can occur from one of these conditions:
Small hairs (cilia) in the sinuses, which help move mucus out, do not work properly due to some medical conditions.
Colds and allergies may cause too much mucus to be made or block the opening of the sinuses.
A deviated nasal septum, nasal bone spur, or nasal polyps may block the opening of the sinuses.
Sinusitis can be called:
Acute, when symptoms are present for 4 weeks or less. It is caused by bacteria growing in the sinuses.
Chronic, when swelling and inflammation of the sinuses are present for longer than 3 months. It may be caused by bacteria or a fungus.”
Usually, the sounds of tinnitus from sinus infection are cracking, high pitch ringing, a cricked like sound or a high pitch noise similar to that of computer monitor.
