Best Audiologist in Hopkins Explains How to Stop the Ringing in Your Ears

 

Ringing in your ears is an annoyance at best. When it continues as a chronic problem, it can also disrupt your life in more ways than one. Whether you suffer from unwanted sound in your ears on rare occasions or as part of an ongoing battle, the best audiologist in Hopkins, MN at Hearing Solutions Group is here to discuss various ways to help quiet the ringing in your ears.

What Is Tinnitus?

Tinnitus (pronounced tin-NY-tus) is the name for unwanted sound in your ears. This sound can be present in a variety of forms. Some people hear ringing; others hear a rushing sound, yet others experience a buzzing in their ears or in their heads.

According to audiologist Dr. James Pehringer at Hearing Solutions Group, tinnitus is a surprisingly common condition in people who suffer from hearing loss. In fact, as many as 75% of hearing loss patients report tinnitus as a side effect. If you suffer from chronic tinnitus, we recommend that you have your hearing tested, since that unwanted sound could be a sign that your hearing has diminished.

What Causes Tinnitus?

The prevailing theory on why people with hearing loss experience tinnitus is called the ‘Central Gain’ theory. According to this theory, the sound you hear in your ears or head is the result of a loss of proper stimulation present in normal-hearing individuals. In other words, because your brain is not properly stimulated by the ear, the brain attempts to make up for the missing stimulation, which results in over-exciting your system. This neurological phenomenon has been likened to the “phantom limb” experience.

Treating Tinnitus

While there is no cure for tinnitus, there is a safe way to treat it. In fact, the only FDA-approved treatment option for tinnitus is to provide your brain with the proper stimulation. Today’s treatment options are available for people with hearing loss, as well as for individuals with normal hearing. Most patients who undergo tinnitus treatment at Hopkins, MN report a significant reduction in their daily tinnitus experience. Some even say the ringing disappears completely during the day!

"Dr James Pehringer is the best audiologist I have met. He has taken care of my mother and her hearing for many years. I love that he has a PhD as it means to me he went beyond the minimum requirements to be the very best, and he is. He has solved one problem after another for my mother - he is sooo kind and spends all the time necessary to "fix the problem". I cannot recommend him highly enough. Even more than his knowledge of audiology, he is a very, very kind man."
