About Tinnitus

Ringing in the ears affects the majority of people at some point in their lives. Maybe you can still hear the music resonating around your head after a concert or a night out at a club. Tinnitus, a condition in which the ringing or buzzing lasts longer than it should, affects both men and women. It is, however, most frequent in men aged 65 to 74. But don’t think of it as an illness; it’s more of a symptom of something else going on in your brain or hearing system..

Tinnitus Causes

Tinnitus is frequently associated with hearing loss. According to most ideas, when the cochlear ceases sending regular signals to the brain, we become confused and make our own noise to fill the void.

The following are the main causes of tinnitus:

  • Exposure to loud noise
  • Misalignment of the jaw joint
  • Intracranial hypertension that isn’t harmful
  • Pregnancy, anaemia and an overactive thyroid are all factors to consider
  • Tinnitus symptoms can be aggravated by stress, exhaustion, caffeine, smoking, and alcohol

Tinnitus Treatment

If you have the symptoms of tinnitus (ringing, roaring, buzzing, or whistling noise in the ear), see an ear, nose, and throat expert right away to make sure it’s not something more serious. Our knowledgeable, caring, and sympathetic team of audiologists will be pleased to assist you if tinnitus is confirmed.

If you are suffering from tinnitus as well as hearing loss, you may discover that tinnitus is more distressing since you aren’t used to hearing so many sounds. A hearing aid can help you get some relief from your tinnitus by enhancing your ability to converse while partially masking your noise.

A tinnitus masker is one of the most effective things we offer. These look a lot like hearing aids, but they use a blend of external noises to activate the hearing nerve fibres. This helps to divert your attention away from the tinnitus sounds, making your daily life more pleasant.

Another therapy option for tinnitus-related stress and irritation is Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT). A clinic psychologist can help you relax in any situation by diverting your attention away from tinnitus sounds.

Hearing Plus understands that every case of tinnitus is unique. Only via an initial assessment and consultation can we truly determine the best solution for your unique case.
