Identifying The Causes Of Tinnitus (2)

Beside the common causes of tinnitus as I posted in the previous post (I suggest you to read it first to know the whole story), tinnitus is also caused by a blood vessel disorder that is called pulsatile tinnitus. Causes include:

  • Head and neck tumors. A tumor that presses on blood vessels in your head or neck (vascular neoplasm) can cause tinnitus and other symptoms.
  • Atherosclerosis. With age and buildup of cholesterol and other fatty deposits, major blood vessels close to your middle and inner ear lose some of their elasticity — the ability to flex or expand slightly with each heartbeat. That causes blood flow to become more forceful and sometimes more turbulent, making it easier for your ear to detect the beats. You can generally hear this type of tinnitus in both ears.
  • High blood pressure. Hypertension and factors that increase blood pressure, such as stress, alcohol and caffeine, can make tinnitus more noticeable. Repositioning your head usually causes the sound to disappear.
  • Turbulent blood flow. Narrowing or kinking in a neck artery (carotid artery) or vein in your neck (jugular vein) can cause turbulent blood flow, leading to tinnitus.
  • Malformation of capillaries. A condition called arteriovenous malformation (AVM), which occurs in the connections between arteries and veins, can result in tinnitus. This type of tinnitus generally occurs in only one ear.
Medications that can cause tinnitus 

A number of medications may cause or worsen tinnitus. Generally, the higher the dose of medication you take, the worse tinnitus becomes. Often the unwanted noise disappears when you stop using these drugs. Medications known to cause or worsen tinnitus include:
  • Antibiotics, including chloramphenicol, erythromycin, tetracycline, vancomycin and bleomycin.
  • Cancer medications, including mechlorethamine and vincristine.
  • Diuretics — water pills — such as bumetanide, ethacrynic acid, furosemide.
  • Quinine medications used for malaria or other health conditions.
  • Chloroquine, a malaria medication.
  • Aspirin taken in uncommonly high doses (12 or more per day) may cause tinnitus.
Finally, before taking any tinnitus therapy, you have to identify causes of tinnitus and treatable conditions that may be associated with the symptoms. You can visit this site to know more information about tinnitus and which treatment right for the symptoms.
