What is Tinnitus?
Tinnitus is the sensation of hearing sound in your ears or head when no external sound is present. If you’re experiencing signs of Tinnitus, you’re not alone.
About 1 in 5 people are affected by this phenomenon. Most Tinnitus sufferers describe the effects as “ringing in the ears,” but it is not uncommon to experience additional hearing symptoms such as buzzing, hissing, whistling, roaring, and even chirping. The discernible symptoms and the extent of their harm vary and each individual may experience tinnitus differently.
Tinnitus is not a disease or even a condition- it’s a symptom of a different underlying issue or condition you may have, such as hearing loss, ear infection, or even high blood pressure. Tinnitus symptoms may come and go with no clear start or end making it important to speak with your audiologist about what you are experiencing.
Do you suffer from ringing in the ears, otherwise known as tinnitus? If so, you are not alone. Recent statistics from the American Tinnitus Association indicates nearly 50 million Americans have this symptom, often to a debilitating degree.
Did you know, hearing aids may help with tinnitus. An article published by NCBI (“Hearing Aids For The Treatment of Tinnitus”) indicated the use of hearing aids can provide two benefits: It can help make the patient less aware of the ringing in the ears and it can help with communication by reducing the sensation that voices and sounds are masked by the tinnitus.
Recently, Kaw Valley Hearing completed a survey which indicated the symptom patients with hearing loss would like the most assistance with…is relief from their tinnitus (40% of the responses). This was followed by easier communication in background noise (20%).
Using the power of our Multiflex Tinnitus Technology, hearing aids can be used to create a customizable and comforting sound stimulus that can be fine-tuned by a hearing specialist to soothe the unique, irritating sounds a Tinnitus sufferer hears.
Compatible with many of our hearing aid solutions, the tinnitus masker is a new way to manage your tinnitus with flexibility and control for all-day relief.
