Many tinnitus sufferers have found a way to live with the constant ringing in their ears; others are not so fortunate, as the buzzing sound in their ears is so pronounced that it is difficult to concentrate during the day or sleep at night. In either case, tinnitus sufferers can benefit from an evaluation from an audiologist. On the basis of that exam, either a hearing instrument or a sound generator may be recommended. While the former makes sound so clear that the buzzing noise may recede, the latter drowns out the buzzing sound with a sound of a specific frequency. The important point to remember is that this is a common problem that is not “all in your head.”
P.S. Generally speaking, tinnitus intensifies with increased hearing loss.
Hearing aids for tinnitus divert attention away from the disturbing sounds associated with it. They make it easier to listen to external sounds instead of permanently concentrating on annoying internal sounds. To schedule a consultation, please call EAR & HEARING CLINIC.
