Tinnitus Headache - Your Basics Guide

Author : Barbara D. Turner

Tinnitus and headache could primarily have aroused due to stress and can easily be managed. But when the tinnitus is associated with temporal headache, thorough investigation and study must be done. This originates from a complex bone structure just above the ear in the skull and called as the temporal bone that keeps the organ responsible for hearing. To manage Tinnitus headache, knowing the cause and analyzing it would lead us to know how to get the right treatment. There are factors that results to tinnitus headache. These factors are split into two primary factors and secondary factors.

Stress, continuous sleeplessness or insomnia, subarachnoid hemorrhage, and lumber puncture are the common and primary factors that could lead into a tinnitus headache. First, we will discuss the primary factor which is stress. Stress comes from the temporal bone, a part of the skull. There is nothing much to do to treat this cause but to relax and take a deep breath. Drinking plenty of water would help this condition. And though medications may be needed to be administered, some drugs may give an unhealthy effect. Insomnia could be treated just by getting right quantity of sleep.

One factor of a tinnitus headache is serious and life threatening because there is bleeding in the subarachnoid space in the brain. This is called a subarachnoid hemorrhage. It could unexpectedly occur or might be from a head injury wherein the cerebral aneurysm ruptured. This is not a common cause having only 1 out of 15,000 Americans in the survey result. Lumber puncture is a collection of cerebrospinal fluid from the sac of the lumber. Tinnitus headache may occur if it does after 12 hours from which the procedure is done.

Knowing already the primary factors, let us proceed to the secondary factors which are a new discovery. A new study has pointed that tinnitus headache comes from a group of condition called Temporomandibular Disorder (TMD). And this TMD is caused by another factor called the Temporomandibular Join Disorder (TMJ). It is known to bring out some ear problem since the jaw joint is just near the ear. Since the muscle and tendril are directly connected with the ear, nerve impulses are also transmitted from those that are connected to the jaw muscles. And even with a slight mistake in the interpretation of signals from each other may be altered.

A continuous study of tinnitus and its relation to headache is still in progress. But one consideration of the causes of tinnitus headache would be the taking in of ototoxic medications. Antibiotics including Aminoglycosides, Vancomycin, and Erythromycin may cause a tinnitus headache. The chemotherapy agents and quinine may cause tinnitus and an uncomfortable temporal headache most especially to the elderly. The toxicity in these drugs may irritate the temporal part in the skull giving pain and discomfort in that area.
