Ireland (PRUnderground) December 2nd, 2013
Tinnitus can commonly sound like ringing or buzzing in the ears. It’s not a disease or an illness and it’s generated within a person’s own auditory pathways. For some people it comes and goes and in more severe cases it is present permanently, causing problems with sleep and concentration.
If you believe that you have tinnitus, try not to worry. One of the things that we do know about tinnitus is that stress can bring it on or even make it worse. There is help available and this will probably mean managing the condition – it may even disappear if a symptom of an underlying condition can be treated.
What can be done?
Tinnitus therapies vary and it is important to point out that we can only talk about relieving tinnitus. Most therapies revolve around counselling and using alternative forms of sound as a distraction to the tinnitus.
•Sound Relaxation Ball – This plays seven sounds of nature and includes a built-in timer and can be used anywhere.
• Sound CDs – A box of four relaxation CDs including Tranquil Horizons, Cloud Dances, Classical Thunderstorms and Harmony can be listened to anywhere you have access to a CD player.
• Tinnitus Masker – A hearing aid device that plays white noise to mask the sound of your tinnitus. Noise exposure is a common contributor to Tinnitus. Tinnitus therapy can involve the sufferer listening to another sound source to serve as a distraction.
• Amplification – Hearing aids themselves have been known to help where there is a hearing loss. Some now even have a dedicated program for tinnitus distraction.
• Tinnitus Counselling – A trained Tinnitus Counsellor can help discuss how to manage the condition.
