Posted by C/V ENT Surgical Group on Nov 15, 2021 9:10:03 AM

Do you experience an annoying hissing, ringing, or high-pitched sound in your ears that nobody else seems to hear? Do your ears often feel like they are vibrating, throbbing, or full? Do the sounds or sensations come and go without warning? Are they painful? If so, and you are over the age of 40, you may have age-related tinnitus. 

Anyone can experience tinnitus, but it is more common in older adults. The risk of developing age-related tinnitus or hearing disorders significantly increases after the age of 40. Men are more prone to the condition than women. Anything that disturbs the inner mechanisms in the ears can affect your equilibrium, hearing, or both. With tinnitus, the ability to hear and communicate efficiently and maintain balance diminishes much faster.

How to Prevent Environmental Allergies

Environmental allergies occur when the body’s immune system has a reaction to a substance or element in the environment that it perceives as toxic or foreign. When an allergic reaction is triggered, the body releases chemicals called histamines and leukotrienes. Some common symptoms of environmental allergies include runny nose, sneezing, coughing, watery or irritated eyes, sore throat, hives, sinus pain, and fatigue.

Allergies: Causes, Symptoms, Diagnosis, and Treatment

Posted by C/V ENT Surgical Group on Jul 29, 2021 2:41:00 PM

When illness strikes, the body's immune system attacks to wade off the disease-causing bacteria and viruses. The same thing happens when allergies attack the body. The immune system fights away substances that are harmless to your body, which can include viruses, bacteria, or allergens. When your antibodies clash with the allergens, it results in an allergic reaction.

Allergic reactions vary in severity from mild to anaphylaxis, a dangerous, life-threatening reaction. Most of the allergies have no cure, however, treatment helps to mitigate the effects of allergic reactions or reduce the symptoms of allergies.

Additionally, the weather is ideal for cozying around in a warm sweater, comfy flip-flops, and a warm cup of hot chocolate. However, there is one major setback for about 60 million Americans: seasonal allergies.

Allergies are alarmingly common during fall and spring. Their symptoms are strikingly similar, but their causes are different. Here is a comprehensive overview of spring and fall allergies, including their causes and remedies.

Chronic Nasal Congestion Treatment Options

Posted by C/V ENT Surgical Group on Jun 30, 2021 5:12:49 PM

Chronic nasal congestion can often be caused by chronic sinusitis which is a narrowing of spaces inside your nose and sinuses due to swelling and inflammation. The inflammation may result from infections, autoimmune disorders, or allergies. The condition persists for three months or longer despite receiving treatment.

Chronic sinusitis disrupts your ability to drain mucus, leaving your nose feeling stuffy. You'll have difficulties breathing through the nose, and the area around your eyes might feel tender or swollen.

Also known as chronic rhinosinusitis, this condition affects both children and adults. The condition is often caused by an infection, swollen linings of the sinuses, or growths in the sinuses (i.e. nasal polyps).
