Worried About Ringing in Your Ears ?
Do you hear a ringing, roaring, clicking, or hissing sound in your ears with no external sound source? Do you hear this sound often or all the time? Does the sound bother you a lot? Is it interfering with your enjoyment of life or your sleep?
If you answered yes to any of these questions, you may have tinnitus and you should see a hearing professional. 30 million people are currently suffering from tinnitus, and a large proportion of them think that there is nothing they can do about it.
Tinnitus Can’t Be Cured, But It Can Be Treated
Tinnitus can have a massive impact on a person’s emotional well-being, ability to hear, ability to sleep and ability to concentrate. It is extremely common for the tinnitus patient to report increased stress, anxiety, fatigue, memory problems, and irritability.
Tinnitus is a Common Problem
You are not alone, nearly everyone has experienced tinnitus at one time or other, for most it is a passing incident. However, for some, it can be a constant companion. The definition of Tinnitus is the perception of sound in the absence of any corresponding external sound. It is a Latin word which means ringing. Tinnitus can be heard in one ear or two or perceived centrally inside your head. It can be a ringing noise, a hissing noise and for some, it is even perceived as music!
Not a Disease
It is not a disease in itself, it is a symptom of some underlying condition or problem occurring anywhere within the hearing system. Don’t forget, your ears are just the conduits for sound, hearing also involves the auditory nerve and the brain centres responsible. Most Tinnitus is associated with the presence of hearing loss, however, some people have tinnitus and normal hearing.

The tinnitus cycle
Tinnitus can trigger many negative emotions which have a knock-on effect on general health and outlook. Often the severity of your reaction depends on your perception of the sound. If your perception of the sound is increasingly negative, you’re likely to have a negative emotional response. When this happens, it stresses you making you pay more attention to the sound of your tinnitus. Thus begins a cycle that affects your nervous system. This can lead to anxiety, sleep disturbance, depression and poor concentration. These feelings stress you even more which just reinforces this vicious cycle.
