TINNITUS

Tinnitus, by definition, is “ringing like a bell” and is your brain’s reaction to loss of sensory input from your ears.

A symptom, not a disease, tinnitus is experienced differently by everyone and might cause you to experience ringing, buzzing, humming.



WHAT IS TINNITUS?


Tinnitus is the sensation of sound that is generated inside your brain that only you can hear.  Some people hear ringing, buzzing or humming and it can vary in frequency.

Obviously, having this condition can have a major impact on people’s daily lives, and can induce stress, anxiety, anger and sleep loss. It has many causes and more than 80% of people also experience some degree of hearing loss, though many are not aware of this. For some, treatment with hearing aids can help them feel some relief (source: Oticon).



WHAT ARE THE CAUSES OF TINNITUS?

Tinnitus is a symptom not a disease and can have many possible causes.

  • hearing loss
  • accumulation of earwax
  • exposure to loud sounds
  • head or neck injuries
  • problems with blood circulation
  • jaw misalignment
  • ear or sinus infections certain types of tumors
  • cardiovascular disease
  • certain medications

HOW DOES TINNITUS AFFECT ME?

Some people who experience Tinnitus can tune it out from the perceptive part of their brain.  However, some people are affected so much that daily life is compromised.  At Advanced Hearing Services, we understand that having these symptoms not only affects your day to day activities, but can impact your relationships and overall contentment.



CAN TINNITUS BE TREATED?


Absolutely!

While there is no medical cure, Susan has a variety of treatment solutions:

  • Hearing Aids
  • Combination Devices: Hearing aids with Tinnitus Sound Support TM
  • Tinnitus Retraining Therapy

Since Tinnitus affects each person differently the solution is equally individual. A personal treatment plan will be developed with the purpose of pushing your symptoms into the background where they belongs. You may find that listening to different types of sound may take your attention away from the constant noise, or relax you and provide relief. This is what we refer to as Sound Therapy and is part of the treatment plan. Sound Therapy can include combination hearing devices with Tinnitus Sound Relief, which is now available in the new Oticon Opn.
