WHAT IS TINNITUS
WHAT CAUSES TINNITUS?
WHAT SHOULD I DO IF MY TINNITUS IS REALLY ANNOYING?
CAN MY TINNITUS BE FIXED?
While there is no actual ‘cure’ for tinnitus there are a number of things to help disguise it and make the annoyance a whole lot less.
If you have a hearing loss then the use of a hearing aid is the most effective measure to make the tinnitus less noticeable
- Maskers are sound generators that make a pleasant noise that helps keep the tinnitus less noticeable
- Relaxation therapy can often help make the tinnitus less annoying
- Avoiding silence is recommended if the tinnitus is bothering you, when other sounds are available its much easier to ignore the tinnitus
- Make sure your ears aren’t blocked with wax as this can make tinnitus worse
At the clinic we will advise what we think is the best solution for you to try. For most a hearing aid or hearing aid masker combination is by far the best option.
