What Causes Tinnitus?

Explore the various factors such as hearing loss, loud noises, infections, injuries, medications, and conditions.

Hearing Loss: Age-related hearing loss (presbycusis) and noise-induced hearing loss are common causes. Hearing loss often causes tinnitus because the brain increases neural activity in response to the lack of auditory signals, leading to the perception of phantom sounds.

Exposure to Loud Noises: Prolonged exposure to loud sounds, such as music concerts, construction noise, or firearms, can damage the hair cells in the inner ear, leading to tinnitus.

Ear infections and blockages: These cause tinnitus by disrupting the normal flow of sound and fluid in the ear, leading to abnormal auditory signals being sent to the brain.

Head and Neck Injuries: Trauma to the head or neck can affect the auditory nerves or brain function, leading to tinnitus.

Medications: Certain medications, especially in high doses, can cause or worsen tinnitus. These include some antibiotics, diuretics, and chemotherapy drugs.

Medical Conditions: Conditions such as Meniere's disease, acoustic neuroma, high blood pressure, and cardiovascular diseases can also contribute to tinnitus.
