Many of us have experienced tinnitus or ringing in our ears at some point. Sometimes it can be from prolonged exposure to loud noises or be caused by some medications.
Tinnitus is when you hear noises (ringing or buzzing) in your ears that don’t come from an outside source. Tinnitus is rarely a sign of a serious condition. There are many treatments for tinnitus but the causes are still somewhat unknown.
Getting used to tinnitus can be a struggle for some people and can affect their daily lives. It is important to get support for your tinnitus if you start to experience it. Olwyn and the team here at Medico Audiology Services can help.
How we treat tinnitus, depends on the extent of the symptoms and how it is affecting your everyday life. Olwyn and the team will carry out a thorough assessment of your hearing, how tinnitus is affecting you and how we can support you. Some clients with hearing loss are looking for the tinnitus to be turned down which is possible with hearing aids. Other clients prefer to manage their response to tinnitus. One area of consideration for this is Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT). You do not need to worry though; we will advise you and put you at ease throughout the process.
