WHAT IS TINNITUS?
Tinnitus is the perception of sounds or noise within the ears with no external sound source. These sounds are often described as ringing, humming or buzzing noises and they can be constant or periodic.
WHAT CAN CAUSE TINNITUS?
Tinnitus can be triggered by a variety of causes but is commonly linked to exposure to loud sounds, which can damage the delicate sensory cells of the inner ear. This condition has also been associated with ear infections, aging, stress, excessive earwax, high blood pressure, and sensory nerve disorders. Activities such as smoking, drinking alcohol or caffeine, and taking excessive amounts of aspirin or antibiotics may exacerbate tinnitus.
HEARING AIDS AND TINNITUS
Many people with tinnitus also have some hearing loss, so the sounds generated by their nervous system in the form of tinnitus seem very loud.
By amplifying natural environmental sounds and the sounds of nature, a hearing aid can make the unpleasant ringing of tinnitus less prominent.
