Suffering from Tinnitus along with Hearing Loss? Try Homeopathy

Tinnitus refers to hearing noises in ear in the absence of any external source of sound. The noise can be of different types like ringing, buzzing, whistling, hissing, roaring, humming or chirping noises. In many cases, hearing loss can attend tinnitus. In some cases, vertigo and sensation of fullness/pressure in the ears can also be present.

Several reasons can lead to tinnitus with hearing loss. Firstly, it could be an age-related issue. With advancing age, degenerative changes occurring in the cochlea (spiral-shaped cavity that contains organ of hearing in ear get filled with fluid) may result in hearing loss and tinnitus. Another cause can be exposure to loud noises. One important reason is Meniere’s disease. It is an inner ear disorder characterised by triad of symptoms including tinnitus, hearing loss and vertigo.  A feeling of fullness of pressure in ears can attend these symptoms. Tinnitus and hearing loss can also occur from ear blockage like from fluid or earwax build up. Otosclerosis is another reason in which there is stiffening of the bones in the middle ear. Labyrinthitis can also be a reason for tinnitus. It is an ear disorder occurring from inflammation in the inner ear. Injuries to head or neck could also result in tinnitus. There are certain medicines also that can lead to tinnitus or worsen it, for example, NSAIDs (non – steroidal anti – inflammatory drugs), diuretics (that help to remove extra salt and water in urine also known as water pills), some antibiotics, quinine medicine and antidepressants.

  1. Hi Dr.
    I have tinnitus most likely caused by the chemo drug Carboplatin. Which of these remedies would you recommend? The noise is more in my head than ears if that makes sense. And it’s a high pitch buzz. It is constant but will change sound every now and then. The chemo drug also caused neuropathy in my fingers and toes.
    Thanks for your help.

  2. Daniela Vance says:

    Hello Dr. Sharma,
    I had the ENT visit. The diagnosis is that the extended buzzing / chirping / clicking sound in my right ear is caused by the muscle(s) spasm in the ear.
    The ENT doctor said that they don’t know what causes the spasm of the ear muscles but some things could trigger it like stress, etc.
    He said there is no cure for that! But some people take muscle relaxant but he discouraged to go that route because they make you very drowsy.

    What remedy do you suggest?

    Thank you.

  3. 58 y/o female with Tinnitus x 8 months. sounds like cicadas or crickets or mosquitoes – hi-pitched and constant. No hearing loss or associated vertigo. Not really bothersome, but not sure if it could become problematic. Best treatment? Thanks!
