The search for a definitive cure is ongoing and real progress is being made, but there is currently no clinically proven way to fully eliminate tinnitus. Despite this, there still are treatments available to help you live a better, more fulfilling, and more productive life.
Tinnitus intensity has a wide range depending on many factors, including your overall well-being. There are simple (and often free!) things you can do that may alleviate some of the burden.
Tinnitus is highly connected to some level of hearing loss. Affecting the reception and perception of external noise can often provide relief from the internal sound of tinnitus.
Although tinnitus is a non-auditory internal sound, you can use real external noise to counteract your perception and reaction to tinnitus.
Tinnitus can generate strong, negative emotions like anxiety, depression, and anger. Using behavioral therapy, you can learn to control your emotional reactions to your tinnitus.
There are currently no FDA-approved drugs specifically for tinnitus. However, there are pharmacological treatment options that can help relieve the stress, anxiety, and depression that are caused by tinnitus.
In some cases, tinnitus is caused by disorders within the body. In these less-common situations, addressing the underlying physical cause can, in some cases, eliminate or at least drastically reduce tinnitus symptoms.
There are some of the cutting-edge therapies currently in development. These treatments deliver electromagnetic pulses to the brain.
