Coping Mechanisms For Tinnitus, That Constant Ringing In Your Ears

By: Cari Nierenberg, Live Science Contributor Published: 07/25/2016 10:53 AM EDT on LiveScience About one in 10 American adults has a persistent ringing or roaring in the ears or head, a condition called chronic tinnitus, a new study suggests. The study also found that the rates of tinnitus are higher among Americans who are regularly exposed to noisy environments, either at work or during their free time. The findings were published today (July 21) in the journal JAMA Otolaryngology-Head &Neck Surgery. The analysis showed that approximately 10 percent of people in the U.S. ages 18 and older had experienced ringing or the sensation of noise — such as roaring, buzzing, beating, whooshing or whistling — in their ears or head in the past 12 months. But the study’s estimated prevalence of tinnitus may be on the low side because “other similar studies have reported even higher rates of tinnitus,” said lead author Dr. Harrison Lin, an ear, nose and throat specialist at the University of California, Irvine. Those studies have found that 8 to 25.3 percent of people in the U.S. have tinnitus. [5 Surprising Facts About Pain] An episode of tinnitus can not only be annoying but also wreak havoc on a person’s quality of life by interfering with thought processing, emotions, hearing, sleep and concentration, the researchers said. To estimate the number of people affected by tinnitus, the researchers analyzed data collected as part of the 2007 In...

Authors: Mitolo M, Tonon C, La Morgia C, Testa C, Carelli V, Lodi R Abstract BACKGROUND: Bright light treatment is a therapeutic intervention mainly used to treat sleep and circadian disturbances in Alzheimer's disease (AD) patients. Recently, a handful of studies also focused on the effect on cognition and behavior. Conflicting findings are reported in the literature, and no definite conclusions have been drawn about its specific therapeutic effect. SUMMARY: The aim of this review is to provide a critical evaluation of available evidence in this field, highlighting the specific characteristics of effective bri...

DesmetAbstractAffect regulation problems have been found to play an important role in the onset of problematic behavior, such as sexual abuse. The role of emotion and maladaptive coping has become relevant in both research and treatment interventions. Forensic treatments have been strongly influenced by conceptualizations of affect regulation that emphasize the control of emotional experience and expression. For a long time, emotions were treated as less important than cognition. Howev...

Authors: Desbeaumes Jodoin V, Miron JP, Lespérance P Abstract OBJECTIVE: Major depressive disorder (MDD) is a prevalent condition in older adults. Although antidepressant drugs are commonly prescribed, efficacy is variable, and older patients are more prone to side effects. Repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) is an alternative therapy used increasingly in the treatment of MDD. Even though recent studies have shown efficacy of rTMS in elderly depressed patients, the safety and efficacy of accelerated rTMS has not been studied in this population. METHODS: Data were retrospectively analyzed ...

We thank the authors for the comments related to this article. We appreciate their comments and suggestions and agree that these studies can be challenging but can also move patient care forward. Obtaining accurate pain scores can be highly subjective and relies on patients reporting pain at a single point in time and a nurse recording the pain score accurately.7 Although pain is subjective, our ability to enter and access the data is much less subjective. In our institution, we have a highly integrated electronic medical records system through EPIC Enterprises (Verona, WI, USA).
