Drug treatments not recommended for inner ear tinnitus.
Phoenix, AZ -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/28/2013 -- Medical experts are raising concerns against the increasing usage of over-the-counter treatments for ear tinnitus. Most of these treatments promise fast relief from the condition, but have not necessarily passed accreditation from legit medical associations.
Currently, the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI) has not endorsed a drug treatment for the condition. However, experts from NCBI assures the public that ongoing researches are being done to determine the best treatment approach for tinnitus ear itching.
Tinnitus ear itching has been one of the most talked about ear infections. It is often characterized by a tingling feeling inside the ear, which may eventually result to pain or itching. The condition affects mostly adults, and has been affected more than 50 million Americans.
Janice Stark is one of the millions who have struggled with ear tinnitus. She admitted to have considered taking drug treatments for her condition but retracted the decision upon learning that most of these treatments may only make her ear tinnitus worse.
"I cannot blame some people for turning into any treatment that promises relief, because ear tinnitus can really be an irritating condition. But, I can assure them that there are better treatment approaches to stop the ringing in the ear," she said.
One of the approaches that Stark shared is the tinnitus retraining therapy, a non-invasive approach to conditioning the person not to be bothered by the tinnitus. It involves relaxation techniques and mind conditioning exercises to fully assist the person in recovering from ear tinnitus.
"I can't be happy enough to learn about these things. Although the process may be gradual, but I am assured of safe and long-term impacts," Stark shared.
Researches have also found other safe treatments that are known to either eliminate or reduce the ringing in the ear caused by tinnitus. Some of these treatments include sound therapy, temporomandibular joint therapy or jaw therapy, and biofeedback. However, effectiveness of these treatments is highly dependent on the cause of ear tinnitus.
“This is one of the reasons why drug treatments are not recommended. Ear tinnitus is linked to a very specific cause which one drug may not be able fully cure,” Stark said.
Stark documented her struggle with ear tinnitus through the Inner Ear Tinnitus. Through the website, Stark further narrates how she is able to safely deal with her condition, without the need of any drug treatment. More of her insights can be accessed through http://www.innereartinnitus.net.
