This noise is not accompanied by hearing loss.
But most of the tinnitus is subjective, that is, it only hears the patient himself. Subjective tinnitus is accompanied by hearing loss often. It arises due to different changes in the middle or inner ear for a background of inflammation, multiple sclerosis, damage to the auditory nerves, intoxication drugs (such as certain types of antibiotics), heavy metals. In order to identify the causes of subjective tinnitus patient is completely examined.

During the examination, the doctor can detect a variety of diseases of the middle ear and the inner ear suspect pathology. For the diagnosis of the patient is most often required to undergo additional tests. ALWAYS audiometry - character study of noise using a special device - the audiometer or forks. If necessary, designate other types of surveys.
In addition, the patient must go to a survey by a physician and neurologist, as idiopathic tinnitus can be caused by high blood pressure, neuritis of the auditory nerve, and various lesions of the brain, including tumors, degenerative disc disease. I must examine the patient and the dentist as often tinnitus is a consequence of the disease joint.
How to get rid of noise
In the case where the detected cause of tinnitus, ie the underlying disease that caused it, it is being treated, which reduces noise. Fully noise can be removed only if it is caused by, for example, inflammation of the middle ear. If this is a consequence sclerosis (proliferation of connective tissue in the middle or inner ear), it is possible to achieve only some improvement.
