Annoying sound that only you can hear

Ringing, buzzing, hissing or roaring. The sensation of sound inside your head can take many forms.

Tinnitus is surprisingly common — approximately 10% of people experience it all the time.

What is tinnitus? 

It is a sensation of sound generated inside your head that only you can hear. Some people experience it occasionally, while for others it is with them constantly.

Tinnitus can have a major impact on people’s lives by causing stress, anger, anxiety and sleep loss.
Tinnitus has many causes.  More than 80% of people have some degree of hearing loss, though many are not aware of this.
Treating tinnitus with hearing aids can help reduce the symptoms of tinnitus for many people.

What causes tinnitus?

It is still uncertain how tinnitus begins. As with hearing loss, tinnitus is often associated with:

  • Exposure to loud sounds

  • Natural aging process

  • Sudden impact noises

  • Injuries to the head and neck

  • Emotional distress or stress

How does tinnitus affect me?

Some people can ignore their tinnitus most of the time. For others, however, the symptoms can become so disturbing that a proper night’s sleep is impossible. A negative cycle can begin, causing tinnitus to take center stage in everyday life. Consult a physician or hearing professional if you are experiencing the symptoms of tinnitus.

Can tinnitus be treated?

There are many ways to take control of your tinnitus and reduce its impact on your life, although your tinnitus may not go away entirely. A hearing care professional can help you manage your symptoms through education, counseling and sound therapy.

Sound therapy

Sound therapy means listening to sounds. It can be a helpful tool in managing your tinnitus. Sound cannot eliminate tinnitus; however, sound can make it seem like the tinnitus is eliminated or reduced. Sound can help you focus your attention on something more pleasant. By listening to different types of sound, it becomes easier to shift your attention away from the tinnitus sound. Together with your hearing professional, you can find the sound therapy that gives you the most relief.
