The use of Mucinex
relief finds a fair number of recommendations
from people who have been suffering from tinnitus
induced by a sinus condition. To appreciate this, the
nature of tinnitus has to be understood.
Nasal Congestion Can Cause
Tinnitus is a medical condition
that is characterized by ringing, buzzing or humming
kinds of sounds in the ear, in the absence of any
external sounds. There are several varied causes that
can trigger off tinnitus symptoms; but what in effect
these causes create is an abnormality in the way sounds
signals are delivered to the brain. In the context of a
sinus condition, this situation typically happens when
the mucous membrane swells up as a result of sinusitis
, and ends up exerting excess pressure on
the auditory pathways, especially the Eustachian tube
that is responsible for maintaining optimum pressure on
both sides of the ear drum. Consequently the sound
signals originating in the ear gets distorted.
Additionally, the sensitive nerve ends start to pick up
low frequency sounds that it would normally overlook.
Such conditions create the annoying sound of tinnitus.
Depending on the severity of the congestion, the
intensity and pitch of the tinnitus sounds can vary in
Mucinex and Tinnitus relation
Mucinex is a drug that
acts as an expectorant. It is used to loosen phlegm and
makes it easier for the body to get rid of it.
Mucinex is known to
provide quick relief during cough and cold.
The relation of mucinex to tinnitus
is an indirect one because this drug is primarily used
to decongest a nasal block
a sinus condition.
The quick decongestion
that mucinex provides releases pressure on the auditory
pathways and can bring relief or terminate tinnitus
sounds (that are of cold and cough origins).
The use of mucinex to bring
relief to nasal congestion as well as for tinnitus
sanction of a physician. Self medication using mucinex
is not recommended since there are several side effects
that the use of mucinex can trigger. Apart from
guaifenesin, the drug mucinex contains other ingredients
that can potentially lead to drug reactions
especially on those who are susceptible to some
conditions such as bladder irritability, blood pressure
related problems etc.
A holistic and multi
disciplinary treatment of tinnitus can offer great
relief from the annoying tinnitus sounds. This option
certainly does not contain the risks of side effects
that drugs typically contain.
