What is Tinnitus?


Tinnitus is usually defined by a ringing or buzzing in the ears and it can even result in the spinning sensation vertigo. This type of symptom is associated with nerve problems in the brain or ear.

Tinnitus varies from person to person but most of us experience it at some point during our lives. Some people may hear clicking or chirping rather than ringing, it may start after a loud concert and last for a few hours, or it can be spontaneous and permanent.

The sound of tinnitus is very real to the person hearing it, and can become very distressing and have a negative impact on the person's life. Although tinnitus is often a stand-alone problem which doesn't always lead to hearing loss, it can indicate other health issues, so it is important that you see your GP if you suffer from it for an elongated period of time.

The use of a hearing instrument can also help to mask the Tinnitus, giving the sufferer more confidence and a more healthy state of mind.

If you or a loved is experiencing Tinnitus, why not book a no obligation assessment with your local hearing care professional.
