Tinnitus is a condition of hearing noises in your ears when there is no actual noise present. Millions of Americans experience tinnitus in their daily lives. Some describe it as a ringing, buzzing, whooshing, or roaring sound.
Tinnitus is considered a symptom and not a disease. It can range from mild to severe, and there are different causes. Some of the common causes of tinnitus are age-related hearing loss, noise-induced hearing loss, and earwax blockage.
Unfortunately there is no cure for tinnitus. However, there are treatment options including hearing aids and other devices that help you find relief. At About Better Care Audiology, we can help you discover which method works best for you and put an end to that ringing in your ears.
For many people, relief from tinnitus can be achieved through hearing aid use. Many hearing aids offer a tinnitus masking feature that can provide a soothing experience. Our audiologist can evaluate your tinnitus and help you find the correct device for you.
