Ears: Inflammation, hearing loss, tinnitus

Inflammation in the ears is often painful and may be a symptom of a more serious illness. If you suffer from this, you should immediately consult an ENT specialist to start the required treatment.

Tinnitus (ringing in the ears)
Tinnitus (ringing in the ears) may be a side effect of loss of hearing, but it can also occur by itself. In the case of tinnitus, you should also consult a doctor if the symptoms do not disappear naturally after a few hours.

PROCEDURE /FOLLOW-UP TREATMENT

If you suffer from a loss of hearing, drugs that stimulate circulation can usually help, possibly in combination with infusions.

Due to the numerous causes of tinnitus (stress, hypertension, disorders of the cervical spine, drug side effects) and how sound is perceived by those affected, it is very important to carry out an examination of the inner ear and to conduct a detailed interview with the patient.

Follow-up treatment, such as discontinuation of a particular drug or stress reduction, depends on the cause of the discomfort.

RISKS/SIDE EFFECTS

Possible risks and side effects with loss of hearing or tinnitus depend on the diagnosis.

Sudden loss of hearing
Sudden loss of hearing – impairment of hearing affecting one or both ears – can come all of a sudden and without warning. If your hearing does not improve within a few hours, you must consult a doctor.
