Understanding the Ear
The ear is a complicated organ that consists of three parts—the outer ear, middle ear and inner ear. Within these parts are structures vital to hearing and balance. When one or more structures of the ear is damaged or infected, it may lead to hearing loss, tinnitus, and balance disorders such as vertigo.
What is tinnitus?
Tinnitus, or “ringing in the ears,” can range from loud roaring to clicking or buzzing. Tinnitus is most commonly caused from damage to the microscopic endings of the hearing nerve in the inner ear. Exposure to loud noise and advancing in age are the most common causes of tinnitus. Although bothersome, tinnitus is not typically serious, but can be treated to reduce annoyance.
Dizziness, Vertigo and Imbalance
An organ in the inner ear, the labyrinth, plays a key role in balance. When balance is impaired, you may experience difficulty standing or walking and a spinning sensation. Other symptoms include lightheadedness, blurred vision, nausea, faintness and anxiety. Your ENT physician can determine the best treatment plan for your individual needs.
