Do you or a loved one experience ringing in your ears? If so, you are not alone. According to the American Tinnitus Association, the nation’s foremost and trusted organization committed to finding a cure for tinnitus, fifty million Americans have tinnitus.
Tinnitus is the perception of sound when there is no external noise present. It is often referred to as “ringing in the ears”, although your tinnitus may not sound like ringing at all. Instead, it may sound like hissing, buzzing, droning, roaring, cicadas, or even voices and music.
Many people with tinnitus experience problems with their ability to sleep, concentrate and hear. They may be anxious, depressed, and have trouble at home or work. Rest assured these are common responses to tinnitus and help is available.
Now, how about some good news? Ninety-seven percent of people with tinnitus habituate to it within six to eighteen months. In the meantime, while there is no cure for tinnitus, there are several helpful strategies you can utilize to provide relief.
