Tinnitus can't be measured objectively. Alternatively, the audiologist relies on information you supply in describing the ringing in the ears. The audiologist will talk to you questions such as for example: Which ear is involved? Best suited … left … both? May be the ringing constant? Can you notice it more at times of your day or night? Can you describe the sound or the ringing? Does indeed the sound own a pitch to it? High pitch … reduced pitch? How loud will it seem? Does it seem noisy or gentle? Does the sound modification or fluctuate? Do you notice conditions that produce the tinnitus worse-such as when drinking caffeinated drinks, when taking particular medications, or after contact with noise? Does the ringing in ears affect your sleep … your work … your ability to concentrate? How annoying is it? Extremely so or not terribly bothersome? In discussing your solutions to these questions, the audiologist can provide you information that may increase your knowledge of the tinnitus. Knowing the cause of your tinnitus can offer relief instead of needing to are living with the uncertainty of the condition. When the possible cause of your tinnitus is understood, your stress and anxiety level (which will make tinnitus worse) is generally reduced. You can "take charge" by anticipating, preventing, and changing scenarios that produce your tinnitus worse.
