Do you suffer from tinnitus? Do you know what it is? Tinnitus is a bothersome ringing in the ears. There are varying degrees of tinnitus; from a mild, intermittent noise in the background that an individual may get used to over time, to extreme cases where it can be very loud and interfere with one’s ability to concentrate, sleep and focus on enjoying life.
Tinnitus is often correlated with damage to the nerves that might wind up causing significant loss of hearing. After a thorough hearing aid evaluation, our specialist may recommend that you see your doctor in order to rule out any potential medical issues causing the problem. Or, if she feels you will benefit, she can also fit you with a hearing device with sound cancellation technology to help mask the buzzing or ringing sounds.
If you are dealing with any form of tinnitus, don’t delay getting help. Our hearing specialist will be glad to assist you, and help get you on the path to a better quality of life.
