Minnesota Tinnitus Attorney

A person suffering from tinnitus experiences a perception of sound in the ears or head when an external source is not present.  Tinnitus can occur in one ear or both, be intermittent or constant, and the volume can be subtle to piercing.

Tinnitus occurs from a head trauma when the cilia is damaged or destroyed from an impact or loud explosion that causes hearing loss.

A signal is periodically created by the cilium which tells the brain that there is silence.  If that signal is lost, the loss of the signal for silence, or disinhibition, can occur.  The brain interprets the loss of silence as a ringing, buzzing, clicking, whistling or hissing noise.

Similar to brain cells, when the cilia is destroyed, it is permanently lost.  Certain things can be done to try to minimize the effects or improve the severity of tinnitus, including:

  • taking magnesium, zinc, Ginko biloba, B vitamins or other supplements
  • acupuncture or hypnosis
  • avoiding alcohol, nicotine, caffeine and foods with a high sugar content.

Treatment for tinnitus can vary as well.  Some people choose to use a hearing aid but find that the frequencies get amplified.  Others have used masking devices which creates another noise at another frequency and causes less interference.  A drug has been commercially available in the U.S. to treat tinnitus but it does carry a multitude of negative side effects.
