What is Tinnitus?
More people than ever are seeking help for tinnitus. Tinnitus is when a sound occurs in the brain that no one can hear except you. The sounds vary depending on the patient but are often described as a buzzing, humming, ringing, whistling, or high-pitched noise. Usually, the symptoms of tinnitus are more noticeable at night when going to sleep or early in the day when things are quiet. Many people have mild random events of tinnitus that are dismissed as being non-intrusive. Others find it very distracting, raising their stress levels and blood pressure. In worst cases, tinnitus is nearly debilitating.
If you have tinnitus and a hearing loss, hearing aids may relieve your tinnitus and improve your hearing ability. Hearing aids with tinnitus therapy features help divert your attention away from the tinnitus and makes it easier to listen to external sounds instead of the annoying symptoms of tinnitus. Our audiologist can help you in selecting and fitting the most appropriate hearing aids for you, so you can experience relief from the ringing in your ears.
