What Is Tinnitus?
Ringing in your ears is the most common symptom of tinnitus. At a minimum, the ringing is annoying and can drown out everyday sounds. Severe tinnitus can also be loud enough to keep you from sleeping, and can cause dizziness and nausea.
Ringing in your ears can be annoying — or unbearable
In some cases, allergies and congestion in your nasal passages can cause tinnitus or make it worse. But more often, tinnitus is a symptom of hearing loss. Either way, the smart thing to do is to have us test your hearing right away. We can discuss your treatment options.
Does Tinnitus Cause Vertigo?
Vertigo, or what some people just call dizziness, is caused by a disease affecting your inner ear, which helps you stay upright and balanced. The whirling and spinning of vertigo can cause balance issues and increase your chances of falling. That’s the last thing anyone wants; unfortunately, the incidence of falls increases when you’re over 65.
