Tinnitus is a hearing condition in which an individual perceives a noise that does not have an external source, or that is usually imperceptible (ex. the sound of your own pulse). It can also be known as “ringing in the ears,” but noises might also sound like buzzing, hissing, whistling, etc.
Treatment for tinnitus involves treating either the underlying cause directly (for example, if the tinnitus is due to wax buildup or an ear infection), or helping patients to manage the condition in everyday life, if the cause itself cannot be treated (as is the case when tinnitus results from loud noise exposure). One treatment option for patients whose tinnitus is caused by prolonged exposure to loud sounds is the use of a tinnitus masker, which creates sounds intended to cancel out the sound of the condition.
If you are experiencing any of the above-mentioned symptoms, we can conduct an evaluation at Audiology & Speech Solutions and will work to develop the best treatment plan for you.
Tinnitus is often just a nuisance, but it can disrupt daily living if it impacts a person’s ability to hear others speak, concentrate on work, and in extreme cases, prevent an individual from sleeping properly.
Tinnitus can be caused by extended exposure to loud noises, in which case it may coexist with hearing loss, and can also occur alongside age-related hearing loss.
