How to Eliminate the Buzz in the Ears
Are you addicted to listening to the loud music it often caused damage to the microscopic nerve endings of the inner ear? Tinnitus can be a symptom of damage to the nervous system or a problem with the circulatory system. Obviously it is better to prevent the onset of tinnitus rather than trying to cure it, however, there are methods to treat this disorder even to damage done. Continue reading for more information.
1) Try Acufen
Try the trick of the tap on the skull. When the ears do not stop buzzing after a concert, it means that the hairs in the cochlea have suffered damage, causing inflammation and excessive stimulation of the nerves. The brain interprets this inflammation as a constant whistle or buzz, but this trick can be useful to make that annoying sound disappear.
Cover the ears with the palms of the hands, with the fingers pointing backwards and resting on the back of the skull. The mids must touch exactly the height of the nape.
Supports the indices on the average.
With a strong movement, the indexes must hit the mids and consequently the nape. This movement will seem like a drum stroke. Since the fingers also hit the head, the noise will be quite loud, but it is completely normal.
Keep pressing your fingers on the back of your neck at least 40 or 50 times, after which the buzz should stop.
2) Try to wait for it to pass.
The buzz is often caused by exposure to high volumes but generally disappears after a few hours. Try to distract, rest and avoid anything that can make your symptoms worse. If after 24 hours the buzz has not passed, consult a doctor for investigations.
Treat chronic tinnitus
3) Consult your doctor to treat the triggering cause of tinnitus.
In most cases, tinnitus – the ringing in the ears – is caused by a treatable disorder. By eliminating the cause it is likely that the buzz also disappears altogether or in part.
Ask the doctor to remove the earwax plugs from your ears. If you prefer, you can do it at home. By removing the accumulation of earwax, the symptoms could alleviate.
Request a cardiovascular check because vascular diseases can make tinnitus worse.
Have the doctor check the interactions between the medications you take. If you take different types of medicines, talk to your doctor about possible side effects that may cause ringing in your ears. 18 MARCH 2018

4) Cure tinnitus with sound therapy.
There are different methods and techniques to mask the buzz with specific devices:
Use a device that emits white noise, or a background sound, such as the ticking of the rain or the hissing of the wind, useful to dampen the buzz in the ears.
Fans, humidifiers, dehumidifiers and air conditioners also produce a white noise.
Use masks. They lean on their ears and produce white noise to mask the chronic buzz.
He wears a hearing aid. This method is particularly effective if you have a hearing problem in addition to tinnitus.
5) Take medication to reduce the symptoms of tinnitus.
Although the drugs can not completely eliminate the buzz, they can be useful to make it less obvious.
Talk to your doctor about the possibility of taking tricyclic antidepressants. They are effective in severe tinnitus but cause unwanted side effects, such as dry mouth, blurred vision, constipation and heart problems.
Ask the doctor to take Alprazolam. Also known as Xanax, Alprazolam has been shown to be effective against tinnitus, however, it causes addiction and unwanted side effects.
6) Try the ginkgo extract.
Take it three times a day, along with meals, to improve the blood supply to the head and neck, reducing the buzz caused by blood pressure. Try it for two months before assessing the effectiveness of this therapy.
7) Avoid situations in which the cochlea could be damaged, causing tinnitus.
Since tinnitus is very difficult to treat, it is advisable to prevent it from occurring altogether or avoid worsening the symptoms. The following factors could tighten the problem:
High volumes. The concerts are the main cause of tinnitus, but we must not forget the intense noise caused by roadworks, traffic, aeroplanes, firearms, fireworks and so on.
Swimming. Water and chlorine can get stuck in the inner ear, causing or intensifying tinnitus. You can avoid this by wearing earplugs while you swim.
8) Find a way to vent stress.
If you experience constant buzzing in your ears, stress can make it worse. Try to relieve stress by practising physical exercise, meditation or trying massages.
9) Reduce the consumption of alcohol, caffeine and nicotine.
These substances stimulate the blood vessels more dilating them. It mostly happens in the inner ear. Limit the consumption of alcohol, coffee, tea and tobacco to reduce the symptoms of tinnitus.
10) Avoid salt.
Salt weakens circulation and increases pressure for worsening tinnitus.
To stop tinnitus it is also useful to strengthen the immune system, so as to avoid infections and diseases that could worsen the intensity of the buzz. Furthermore, an improvement in general health will also have positive consequences on tinnitus. Try to follow a healthy lifestyle, especially with proper nutrition, regular exercise and rest every night for at least 8 hours.
