Do you (or a loved one) experience a ringing in your ears that no one else can hear? If so, you are not alone. You have tinnitus, an audiological and neurological condition experienced by nearly 45 million Americans.
Tinnitus is a symptom, not a diagnosis. Tinnitus is the perception of sound when no actual external noise is present. While it is commonly referred to as “ringing in the ears,” tinnitus can manifest many different perceptions of sound, including buzzing, hissing, whistling, swooshing, and clicking. In some rare cases, tinnitus patients report hearing music. Tinnitus can be both an acute (temporary) condition or a chronic (ongoing) health issue.
WHAT IS SINUS DISEASE OR SINUSITIS?
If you’ve ever had a sinus infection, you’re not alone. Approximately 31 million Americans suffer from what is known as sinusitis or sinus disease. Sinusitis is defined as inflammation or swelling of the tissue lining of the nasal passages and sinuses. This inflammation can prevent your sinuses from draining properly. Mucous and fluid build-up in the sinuses can lead to sinus infections, which means more inflammation and pain.
The spring allergy season has arrived and it’s already being called one of the worst allergy seasons ever. Heavy winter rain, colder than average temperatures and tree-pollen production coinciding with the onset of grass allergies diverge into what is being known as the “perfect storm of pollen” or “pollen tsunami”. Uncontrolled allergies can lead to headaches, fatigue, congestion and loss of sleep. Let us help you breathe easier, live healthier.
