Tinnitus can be described with many different words – ringing, buzzing, humming, musical are just some of the more common ones.  It is safe to say that everyone’s version of their internal noise is unique to them.  Tinnitus at times can fluctuate in intensity, tone, or even the sound entirely.  More often, the majority of people who experience tinnitus cope with it and manage it reasonably well with no specific tool.  Others need to find a solution to get the noise to stop.

Let’s define what tinnitus is

So what can you do about this?

Taking care of your well being is a great start.  Eating a balanced diet, exercise and getting good sleep are great ways to better health as any health practitioner would suggest.  If you may be using these certain medications, have a conversation with your doctor and pharmacist to see if there may be an alternative for you to use.

However, those who are experiencing tinnitus should book a hearing assessment so that they can have a proper conversation with a hearing practitioner to determine the core cause of the tinnitus. For people who have tinnitus and a hearing loss which is appropriate for amplification, we have found with proper amplification, the sensation of tinnitus is minimized or even reduced to levels which no longer are heard while the hearing aids are being used. If you or a loved one is experiencing tinnitus, we should have a conversation.

Until then, be well.
