Tinnitus Treatment at Clemenceau Medical Center

Tinnitus Treatment at CMC Dubai 

Tinnitus is a medical condition in which a person experiences ringing, buzzing, hissing, or other similar sounds in their ears or head without any external sound source. It can be a temporary or chronic condition and can affect one or both ears.

Tinnitus can be caused by various factors, including exposure to loud noises, ear infections, earwax buildup, certain medications, high blood pressure, and head and neck injuries. In some cases, tinnitus can also be a symptom of an underlying medical condition such as Meniere’s disease, acoustic neuroma, or otosclerosis.

There is no known cure for tinnitus, but there are several treatment options available to manage the symptoms. The treatment for tinnitus depends on the underlying cause and the severity of the symptoms.

Some common treatment options for tinnitus include:

  1. Sound therapy: This involves the use of external sounds to mask or distract from the tinnitus sounds. White noise machines, sound generators, or hearing aids can be used for sound therapy.
  2. Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT): This is a form of therapy that aims to change negative thoughts and behaviors associated with tinnitus. CBT can help patients learn coping strategies and reduce the impact of tinnitus on their daily life.
  3. Medication: Some medications such as antidepressants, antianxiety drugs, and muscle relaxants may be prescribed to alleviate the symptoms of tinnitus.
  4. Lifestyle changes: Avoiding loud noises, limiting alcohol and caffeine intake, quitting smoking, and reducing stress can also help manage tinnitus symptoms.
  5. Surgery: In some cases, surgery may be recommended to treat underlying medical conditions that cause tinnitus.
