Tinnitus is a common complaint by many who have experienced hearing loss. A constant ringing or buzz or hum in one or both ears. The explanation for this condition is that due to the absence of sounds for the brain to process, internal sounds are amplified to fill the gaps, causing the sensation of the ringing. Most people go through life with this condition, thinking it will pass off. The audiometrists advise you to get help when you can.
Tinnitus and auditory distress do not simply go away. They worsen with time. Our audiometrists at Castle Hill advise that as soon as you begin noticing signs of loss in sound perception, it is best to get tested. A strategy and plan of action for the way ahead will then be taken care of by your service provider. Tests determine where exactly the blockage or fault is and the treatment then involves either restoring this or providing you with aid. Tinnitus affects daily performance and concentration levels by affecting your focus. The constant buzz can be stopped by wearing aids that amplify sound and help you hear what is going on around you.
