For the first time I have experienced another effect of caffeine in my body in addition to palpitation, insomnia, and nervousness.. This time just after taking a few sips of coffee, I felt a beating sensation on my eardrums. I immediately sought answers so I realized that the main cause of my problem is caffeine. It means that I have to avoid everything with caffeine.
Here’s some info in relation to tinnitus or similar ear problems:
Tinnitus Causes and Cures
When the tiny hairs and nerve endings become damaged as a result of exposure to noise, tinnitus often results. Tinnitus that is caused from sinus problems Sinusitis and allergy sufferers also frequently suffer from tinnitus. This “type” is caused from blocked Eustachian tubes, which results in a pressure buildup in the inner ear. This condition is normally caused by prolonged taking of anti-histamines and antibiotics which can cause a thickening of the mucous in the inner ear. Excess inner ear mucous would normally simply drain out through the Eustachian tubes but is prevented from doing so because it has become too thick to drain out of the very narrow Eustachian tubes.
Tinnitus from stress or traumatic life events
Another major cause of tinnitus is a long continued exposure to stress or traumatic events such as the death of a loved one. Thyroid dysfunction is definitely associated with tinnitus. When the thyroid produces too much thyroid hormone, this is a condition known as Hyperthyroidism. These additional hormones have a direct effect on most bodily organs, including the heart which beats faster and harder under the influence of thyroid hormones. Hyperthyroidism, by increasing cardiac output, can cause a pulsatile or rushing noise. Vitamin A and/or B12 deficiency has been described as causing tinnitus.
Other tinnitus causes
Another cause of tinnitus is presbycusis (hearing loss that occurs as people age).
Hearing loss is the single most consistent factor in people with tinnitus. As a rule the tinnitus will occur at the same frequencies as the hearing loss. Tinnitus from prescription drugs and over the counter medications.
Caffeine, stimulants that may cause the heart to beat faster. Many prescription medications list tinnitus as a side effect. These include anti-malarials, anti-inflammatories, antibiotics, and antidepressants.
Even more possible tinnitus causes
Many types of head surgery, included dental surgery such as root canal treatments also play a major role in causing tinnitus. This is normally associated with cochlear damage as a result of the noises you are exposed to during the procedure.
Heavy metal poisoning from fillings in the teeth are also a very common cause of tinnitus. This generally occurs when one is replacing old fillings. The temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorder, facial, neck and back pain, headaches, jaw problems, bowels of course… TVibrating eardrum, pulsating sensation, on and offHE LIST can go on but either way a lot of conditions can cause bouts of tinnitus or you can end up with tinnitus 24/7.
