What you should know about tinnitus

Do you or someone you know suffer from constant ‘ringing in the ears’?
However, Tinnitus can be described as more than just ringing. It could be:

  • Hissing
  • Buzzing
  • Whistling
  • Roaring
  • Chirping

This could be high, medium or low pitched sounds. It may even be constant or intermittent.
Whatever noise it is, the real issue is something called tinnitus.

What is Tinnitus?

Tinnitus (“TIN-a-tus” or “Tin-EYEtus”) is the medical term for the sensation of hearing sound in your ears or head when no external sound is present.
The important thing to know is that tinnitus is not a condition or a disease. Instead, it’s a symptom – typically of something bigger, like an ear infection, high blood pressure or, most common, hearing loss.

It’s also important to know that everyone’s tinnitus is different, which is why finding relief has been so elusive – until now.
