Many people die with heart attack because of poor health condition and lack of exercise. Any person who has high cholesterol (bad cholesterol) and tryglycerides levels (a type of fat in the blood) is prone to stroke and heart attack thus, bad and excess cholesterol and triglycerides in the body should be reduced. LIPITOR, a certain type of drug can help lower cholesterol by 39%-60% and tryglycerydes level by 19%-37%. It also helps increase good cholesterol in the body by 5% to 9%.
Despite of the good impression on LIPITOR, the side effects are also worse which include persistent muscle tremor, extreme fatigue, nausea, memory loss and even tinnitus that usually manifest in the right ear. The occurrence of tinnitus may be erratic but prolonged medication to this drug may worsen the condition. A lot of people who are taking LIPITOR have almost the same experience as mentioned which is an indication that LIPITOR problems causes tinnitus.
Most of the people affected by such condition cannot live a normal life since they are often bothered by the ringing sensation. It may even interfere with sleep, relaxation, concentration, work and other normal activities a person used to do. In some tinnitus cases, it may manifest in variable episodes that eventually disappear by itself while in other cases, tinnitus becomes a permanent that you have to deal with for the rest of your life.
The sound of tinnitus varies from one person to another ranging from low ringing volume to a shattering roar. Some people may hear tinnitus as a buzzing, hissing, roaring, whistling, chirping or clicking sound aside from ringing. It may manifest in one or both ears in single or multiple tones. In America alone, there are more than 50 million people suffering from tinnitus and about 12 million of these are severe that needs medical attention.
Despite the fact that tinnitus has no cure, there are wide variety of tinnitus treatments and remedies that can help you alleviate the suffering but just a reminder, do not take anything without consulting your doctor. If you are undergoing medical treatment and you suspect that your tinnitus is a side effect of the medicine you take, discontinue the medication. If the ringing disappears, then it could be the medicine that causes the ringing in the ear.
