It is necessary to understand what is the main reason for this phenomenon to happen. Most often, the problems with organs of hearing are supported by the mental issues. The mind of the potential ‘sacrifice’ may suffer. The problem with hearing loss is just the surface. There are times when people diagnosed with tinnitus do not experience a hearing loss, but face problems with the mind instead.
Once you survived the dramatic cold or powerful flu, your mind may still believe you are in the same condition, sending the corresponding impulses to your brain. That is how tinnitus shows up. Stressful situations usually lead to bad mood, anxiety, and depression, that also affect the ears. Are there any risk factors that predetermine the disorder? Tinnitus is a very spread health condition, which is not a standard health problem as we view fever, pneumonia, or else. However, the situation may get worse, and certain provoking factors exist. For instance, a noise exposure meaning an excessively loud sound might make the condition worse. People who work in a loud environment often report of this problem.
Watch the level of sound while you use your headphones; modern devices like iPads and smartphones warn their users about the risks of listening to music on the maximum volume. Concerts and rock gigs are two more risk factors. Moreover, people with bad habits, especially smoking, tend to have more troubles with hearing. The elderly male population is more frequently attacked by tinnitus than female population.
