Lately does it feel like you have more and more batteries that seem dead
Tinnitus Home Remedies
At Elite Audiology Resources, we recognize the impact that tinnitus (ringing in the ears) can have on people’s lives. Dr. Badstubner is a local tinnitus expert and has some suggestions that may be helpful to you.
- Avoid being in a quiet room. This can make your tinnitus seem louder
- Try not to talk about, or focus on, the ringing. Doing so can increase your anxiety and therefore increase how noticeable it is to you.
- Most people feel their tinnitus worsens at night while going to bed. Use a sound machine or oscillating fan at night while trying to fall asleep. Adding background sound to your environment will give other input for your brain to focus on.
- Start using relaxation techniques, meditation, yoga, etc. Anything you can do to help yourself relax and go to your â€œhappy placeâ€ will allow you to manage your symptoms easier.
- If you work in a quiet environment, or find yourself in quiet often throughout your day, add background noise such as music or the radio during the day. If you work at a desk all day, try adding a fish tank, small water feature, or small sound generator to your desk.
- If you find yourself focusing on it or your anxiety is escalating, get up and move around. Creating a change of scenery can help to break the cycle.
- Do you also have TMJ pain? If so, visit your dentist and ask about their recommendations for relief.
- Hearing aids. If you have hearing loss, treating the hearing loss often is accompanied by relief of tinnitus symptoms.
And most importantly, get a hearing evaluation. Often tinnitus occurs when someone also has hearing loss. Call us to schedule and in-home/office evaluation (817-778-4934). We can perform a diagnostic hearing and tinnitus evaluation and offer some more helpful suggestions.
