Tinnitus is the name given to any buzzing, ringing or whooshing noise that is heard where there is no outside source for the noise. Many people experience tinnitus occasionally throughout their lives but for 13% of the population the tinnitus is persistent. Many people can continue their lives as normal, however for a small number of people tinnitus can severely affect them.
Tinnitus may be caused by a hearing loss, often when this is corrected with hearing aids, people find there is a dramatic reduction in their tinnitus.

Tinnitus can be heard after exposure to very loud noises, and in these circumstances we would always recommend using hearing protection. For custom made hearing protection, please get in touch.
Tinnitus can occur following whiplash or other head or neck injury and it can also arise during a time of stress or after a traumatic experience.
If you experience a sudden onset of tinnitus or you experience tinnitus in one ear only, please make an appointment to discuss this with your GP who can investigate this further.
