Temporary Tinnitus

Temporary Tinnitus

With temporary tinnitus, your auditory system has experienced some irritation, and tinnitus has resulted. Removing the irritation allows your auditory system to recover within a couple of days.

Temporary tinnitus is usually caused by:

  • Exposure to loud noise, like you’d experience at a concert
  • Taking too much medication that is toxic to the inner ear at high doses, such as aspirin
  • Obstruction of the inner ear; for example, by earwax or a foreign object

At Little Rock Audiology we can help you determine if your tinnitus is temporary.
