A mysterious humming noise which kept residents of a Suffolk town awake at night for weeks has struck up again.
For seven weeks in the summer people in Sudbury were plagued by the sound of a low drone, but then it stopped.

January 16, 2011 By Allison Stuart Kaplan Leave a Comment Ringing, whining, whistling, hissing or whooshing. Tinnitus — pronounced as either TIN-i-tus or ti-NIGHT-us, often is caused by age-related hearing loss. Many things can cause tinnitus, including wax buildup, certain medications, head or neck trauma, tumors on the auditory nerve, jaw problems, and other medical conditions.
If you don’t currently suffer from tinnitus, you can protect yourself by wearing hearing protection around loud noise and by asking your doctor if any of your medications have a negative effect on your hearing.
Your first step in dealing with tinnitus is to schedule an evaluation with an AudigyCertified™ audiologist. By having someone else voice their view on what you may be missing, we can help pinpoint where we can help the most.
Due to each patient’s individual needs, we need to take time to truly understand their situation before making any recommendations. Tinnitus (pronounced ti-ni-tis), or ringing in the ears, is the sensation of hearing ringing, buzzing, hissing, chirping, whistling, or other sounds.
Although tinnitus is often associated with hearing loss, it does not cause the loss, nor does a hearing loss cause tinnitus.
Some instances of tinnitus are caused by infections or blockages in the ear, and the tinnitus can disappear once the underlying cause is treated. Certain drugs -- most notably aspirin, several types of antibiotics, anti-inflammatories, sedatives, and antidepressants, as well as quinine medications; tinnitus is cited as a potential side effect for about 200 prescription and nonprescription drugs.

It’s estimated that 10 percent to 15 percent of adults have prolonged tinnitus that often requires medical evaluation. This may help because the brain would rather process external sounds than be distracted by an internal noise.

Action on Hearing Loss (formerly RNID) says more than 70% of people over the age of 70 have some degree of hearing loss.
It is intended for general information purposes only and does not address individual circumstances.

She founded Hearing Professional Center in 1983 serving the diagnostic and rehabilitative needs of over 40,000 individuals. It is often worse when background noise is low, so you may be most aware of it at night when you're trying to fall asleep in a quiet room. In severe cases, however, tinnitus can cause people to have difficulty concentrating and sleeping. In such a case, other therapies -- both conventional and alternative -- may bring significant relief by either decreasing or covering up the unwanted sound. The noise causes permanent damage to the sound-sensitive cells of the cochlea, a spiral-shaped organ in the inner ear. However, while many of us will experience gradual loss of hearing over the years, noise exposure at home, work or leisure can also cause impairment.
It is not a substitute for professional medical advice, diagnosis or treatment and should not be relied on to make decisions about your health.

The Health and Safety Executive says employers have a duty to protect employees from hearing loss. Please consider upgrading your browser software or enabling style sheets (CSS) if you are able to do so. The cavity between the two panes that forms the insulating barrier creates an a tuned reverberation chamber. Injury damage or pressure changesTrauma to the head can impact the ear and cause permament hearing loss. This effect can be further amplified by the dimensions and structure of the internal space.
Sudden pressure changes, like scuba diving or flying, can also harm the eardrum, middle ear or inner ear. While eardrums may take a few weeks to get better, serious inner ear damage may require an operation. I would bet that the noise will go away almost completely if the windows were replaced with the old inefficient single pane kind, and that it could be significantly reduced without replacing the windows by affixing a noise dampening material to both sides of the glass, though this latter choice is hardly an optimal solution.Brett TPlease tell Katie jaques to try hypnotherapy.

Antibiotics linked to possible permanant hearing loss include: gentamicin, streptomycin and neomycin.


Chronic diseaseSome chronic diseases that are not directly linked to ear issues may trigger hearing loss. Some types of hearing loss are also linked to autoimmune diseases like rheumatoid arthritis. How you hear – anatomy of the earSound causes the eardrum and its tiny attached bones in the middle part of the ear to vibrate.
The spiral-shaped cochlea in the inner ear transforms sound into nerve impulses that travel to the brain. The fluid-filled semicircular canals attach to the cochlea and nerves in the inner ear and send information on balance and head position to the brain.
Growths and tumoursHearing loss can be caused by benign, non-cancerous growths, such as osteomas, exostoses or polyps that block the ear canal. A large neuroma can cause headaches, facial pain or numbness, lack of limb coordination and tinnitus.

Gunshots and other explosive noises also pack a punch to your ear, in some cases rupturing eardrums or causing damage to the inner ear. Loud concerts and tinnitusThat loud buzzing sound in the ears after a loud concert is called tinnitus.
The average rock concert exposes you to sound as loud as 110 decibles which can do permamant damage after just 15 minutes. Other noises that break the 85 decibel range and risk permanent hearing loss include power tools, chain saws and leaf blowers. Prevent tinnitus and potential hearing loss, which can last days, months or years by using earplugs and limiting noise exposure.
Personal music playersIf other people can hear the music you're listening to through your earphones, you may be at risk of permanent hearing loss. A recent survey revealed that over 92% of young people listen to music on a personal player or mobile phone. Recent EU standards limited the sound on these devices to 85 decibels, but many listeners plan to override the new default volume – saying they want to wipe out background noise.
Action for Hearing Loss suggests using noise-cancelling headphones rather than pressing override and risking lifelong damage to your hearing.
EarwaxIt may be yucky and unsightly but earwax does serve a useful purpose, protecting the ear canal from dirt and bacteria.
However, if earwax builds up and hardens, it can dull your hearing and give you an earache. If you feel your ears are clogged, see your GP or nurse who may suggest olive oil drops to soften and disperse the wax.
Don't be tempted to do it yourself with a cotton bud – or any other implement - which only risks damage to the ear. Childhood illnessChildren are susceptible to ear infections, which are among many childhood illnesses that can cause hearing loss. Usually, infections that fill the middle ear with fluid cause only temporary hearing loss but some may cause harm to the middle or inner ear and lead to permanent hearing loss. Illnesses linked to hearing loss in children include chickenpox, influenza, measles, meningitis, encephalitis and mumps. Born with hearing lossIn the UK, one or two babies in every thousand are born with significant hearing loss. Although congenital hearing loss often runs in families, it can also be triggered by an infection in the mother during pregnancy. Hearing loss can also develop after lack of oxygen or trauma at birth, or if a newborn is premature. AgeRegardless of how you protect your ears, getting older reduces your hearing as you gradually lose inner ear hair cells.
