Top 6 Myths About Tinnitus
Myth: Tinnitus always feels like a ringing in the ears.
Fact: No two people can have the same perception about tinnitus sounds. Although ringing is the most common one, so are buzzing and humming.
Myth: Tinnitus is a disease that cannot be cured.
Fact: While tinnitus can bother a person greatly, it still cannot be called a disease. It can rather be termed as a symptom of an underlying condition. Although there is no medically proven cure for it, treatments can reduce the symptoms, which can fade the condition.
Myth: Tinnitus is an imaginary condition which doesn’t really exist.
Fact: Tinnitus is based on a sensation and perception of non existing sounds. This makes it look like an imaginary disorder. Hence, there is no specific test that proves it as an ailment. However, there are some treatments and remedies that can help stabilise this symptom of sound perception.
Myth: People suffering from tinnitus are mostly aged.
Fact: Tinnitus has nothing to do with age. However, it is more common among people over the age of 40. It has started becoming very common among many youngsters, the cause of which can be attributed to prolonged use of headphones/earphones,frequent exposure to very loud sounds etc”.
Myth: Tinnitus occurs because of listening to loud music.
Fact: Well, this has a part of it which is true, but not completely. You might develop tinnitus if you are exposed to loud noises on a very regular basis, and not just with loud music occasionally.

High blood pressure, a cardiovascular disease, and certain drugs and medicines can also cause tinnitus as a side effect.

This action is nothing but the defensive cells of the body fighting the symptoms in the body. Homeopathic remedies are natural and have no properties that the body can or will reject. This makes it even more effective as an option for treating many problems, including conditions like tinnitus.
Usually people learn to live with tinnitus. But, over a period of time, it impacts the day-to-day life so much that they go into stress, anxiety, insomnia and depression. Most of the times when tinnitus is associated with any pathology in the middle or inner ear, allopaths treat it with antibiotics and sometimes even anti anxiety and antipsychotic medicines are used in treating tinnitus.
