What is Tinnitus?
Tinnitus is the experience of hearing a sound coming from within one or both of your ears, or your head. It is often described as a ringing, buzzing, or whistling noise. It is usually due to a minor disorder of your hearing system and is often associated with aging or exposure to loud noise. It is a symptom, not a disease. Although tinnitus can sometimes be very distressing, it is usually not life-threatening, and the quality of your life can be recovered. You may not be able to get rid of your tinnitus noise completely, but you can gradually reduce or eliminate the way tinnitus affects you, so that you hardly notice it. Most people who are upset by their tinnitus learn to manage it through doing things for themselves to improve their tinnitus. However, it may take several months–this is quite normal, so don’t feel disheartened.
