What is Tinnitus?

Tinnitus is the ringing in one or both of your ears. If you are hearing buzzing, roaring, or whistling then you may be experiencing tinnitus. It is more common than people think. About 15% to 20% of individuals are affected by this especially older adults. For some tinnitus comes and go, for others it is permanent.

Tinnitus and hearing aids can go hand and hand since the former can cause hearing loss. Hearing aids can help an individual with their tinnitus. First off, hearing aids will restore the stimulation that the brain was missing. Second, they allow you to hear background noise. Lastly, they help reduce stress, which can make your tinnitus worse.
