Do you have ringing in your ears? It might indicate these health issues


1. Don't ignore the ringing in your ear 

Tinnitus or a ringing in your ear is just a symptom that could be a sign of a more serious or complicated underlying condition. Therefore, in order to prevent further complications, the condition must be ruled out or diagnosed as soon as possible. The following are some serious underlying conditions:

2. Tumors 

The development of a cranial tumor may be one of the main causes of hearing ringing sounds. A benign tumor that grows in the nerves that connect the ears to the brain is referred to as an "acoustic neuroma" in medicine. One may experience hearing loss, difficulty balancing, or ringing sounds as a result of blood flow and signals being disrupted.

3. An abnormal growth of the bone in the middle ear Dr. Anish Gupta, lead consultant for ENT at CK Birla Hospital in Gurugram, states, "Sometimes the abnormal growth of the bone in the middle ear leads to hearing loss, and tinnitus may be the earliest symptom to look out for."

4.Disorders of the arteries or veins 

If a person frequently hears a ringing sound, this could also be because the blood is putting too much pressure on the walls of the blood vessels. This could mean that the person has hypertension, plaque buildup that hardens the blood vessels (atherosclerosis), bulging of the blood vessels, arterio-venous malformations, or aneurysms.

5. Disorders of the thyroid (hypothyroidism) 

Although hyperthyroidism is uncommon and less likely to affect the auditory system, However, thyroxine plays a role in the normal development of the auditory system, and when the body produces less thyroxine than it needs, it also affects its ability to hear. At least half of hypothyroid patients, according to a number of studies, suffer from tinnitus and may lose their hearing if treatment is delayed.

6. Low hemoglobin levels or anemia 

"A deficiency in iron causes the arteries to pump harder because iron helps transport oxygenated blood throughout the body. The heart works harder in these situations, and those who are affected can hear or feel their pulse. Pulsatile tinnitus is the name given to this type. According to Dr. Gupta, such individuals are also susceptible to heart-related conditions.
