If you hear a ringing or buzzing in your ears that just won’t stop, you may be experiencing tinnitus. Each individual has a unique perception of tinnitus; however, for everyone, these “phantom” noises are not created by any external stimuli. While many associate tinnitus with hearing loss, tinnitus does not cause hearing loss. Still, it can negatively impact your life, your relationships, your career, and even your ability to simply relax.
While most cases of tinnitus result from exposure to loud noises, there are many other causes, including ototoxic drugs, ear wax blockage, Meniere’s disease, or age-related hearing loss. Knowing the cause of your tinnitus is an important first step toward developing an appropriate treatment plan. Depending on the cause and severity of your tinnitus, there are several treatment options to help alleviate your tinnitus symptoms including tinnitus retraining therapy (TRT), counseling, relaxation techniques, hearing instruments, or a combination of all four. If you suffer from tinnitus, take action today by scheduling your initial tinnitus evaluation.
Hyperacusis is an increased sensitivity to everyday noises. For those experiencing this issue, even normal sounds, like doing the dishes, chewing, or a simple conversation, can be annoying or even painful. Hyperacusis varies in severity, possibly leading to migraines, ear pain, annoyance, and daily discomfort that can make life less enjoyable and less fun to be around.
Hyperacusis can affect individuals of any age, and like tinnitus, there are many causes. Additionally, this decreased sound tolerance is often accompanied by tinnitus. Treatment plans for hyperacusis and tinnitus are very similar, and our audiologists are experts at both. Take the first step towards relief by scheduling an appointment at our Golden hyperacusis center today.
A hearing test is relatively quick, very easy, and provides your audiologist with invaluable information about your auditory health. If you are noticing a change in your hearing, it’s time to schedule your hearing exam.
A typical hearing evaluation consists of the following:
- Reviewing your hearing/medical history.
- Examining your ear canal and outer ear for abnormalities.
- Conducting a hearing test in a sound-proof booth, allowing your audiologist to measure your ability to hear various frequencies.
- Review your results and answer any questions.
If needed, our hearing experts will make a recommendation after the hearing evaluation to set you on a path toward better hearing.
These days, purchasing a hearing aid has never been easier. From online stores to Costco stores across Colorado, options for improving your hearing are constantly expanding. While it may be easy to purchase a hearing aid from your couch, there are a few things that should not be entrusted to the likes of Amazon.
With a visit to our Golden hearing center, you will experience the difference instantly. Our audiologists combine detailed hearing tests, decades of experience, and impeccable service to help find the perfect hearing aid for you. Hearing aids can be life-changing devices, but only if you find one that you like and that has been programmed and adjusted specifically to you.
You may not realize it, but ear wax is actually beneficial for your overall ear and hearing health. Cerumen, which most of us know as ear wax, is a waxy oil that protects the ear canal. Cerumen protects the ear by preventing dust and bacteria from entering the ear and also protects the skin from irritation.
While ear wax is natural and beneficial, the glands that produce this substance can occasionally produce too much, resulting in ear wax blockage. This build-up of excessive cerumen can reduce your ability to hear or even develop into tinnitus. If needed, our audiologists can perform ear wax removal treatment. Our fee per ear is between $50 – $100 – depending on the complexity of the process.
