If you suffer from tinnitus either occasionally or all the time then the question of how to stop tinnitus will doubtless have crossed your mind. Here are the top ways that you should consider to stop tinnitus.
Get a checkup
It sounds obvious but a lot of people don’t take this step to stop or reduce their tinnitus. Your doctor has a number of checks that they can perform which will help to narrow down the cause of the ringing noise in your ears.
If you’re lucky, your tinnitus will be being caused by something easy like a build up of ear wax. If that’s the case, it should be a simple matter of having your ears syringed and your tinnitus problem will go away.
If it’s something more serious, again your doctor will have access to a barrage of tests that they can run to narrow down the possible cause.
Get a prescription
Although I’m not personally a fan of drugs (prescription or otherwise) there are a number of medications available which claim to be able to either stop or at least reduce tinnitus. If you go for this option it’s also worth checking that any of your current medicines aren’t the culprit. Some medicines can cause tinnitus as one of their side effects – read the small print (that you normally ignore) next time just to reassure yourself and raise any questions with your doctor.
Try a natural tinnitus remedy
Natural remedies have less side effects than near enough any alternative. By definition they use normal ingredients (sometimes concentrated) and should have next to no complications. Which is great news if you want to stop tinnitus naturally or, at the very least, reduce that ringing or whistling noise in your ears.
They are also not normally addictive – not something that can be said for all prescription remedies to stop tinnitus.
