Tinnitus

Hissing, buzzing, whistling, roaring or ringing in the ears. It is tinnitus – the sensation of sound in your head that only you can hear. For some it has a huge impact on daily life, including stress, anxiety, anger and sleep disturbances. There is no cure for tinnitus – but at Audika we can help you to manage the symptoms.

Tinnitus is not a disease – it is a symptom of an underlying condition such as hearing loss or ear injury. 80% of people with tinnitus have some degree of hearing loss without being aware of it, and many of them can benefit from hearing aids. But as the symptoms vary from one person to another, so does the treatment. It needs to be personalised to your specific needs. Our hearing care professionals can recommend different techniques, sound therapies and hearing aids that might relieve this nuisance.

Causes of tinnitus

There are many possible causes of tinnitus. The most common one is damage to the tiny hair cells in the inner ear from exposure to excessive noise. If you are working in noisy environments without wearing hearing protection the risk increases of developing tinnitus as well as hearing loss. The louder the noise and the longer you are exposed to it, the greater the risk of damaging your hearing. 

If you use headphones for work, music, entertainment, workout and communication, be careful that the sound is not too loud, as this may cause tinnitus as well. Please note, that in-ear headphones are more likely to contribute to tinnitus and hearing loss than other types of headphones. 

Other reasons why hair cells may be damaged are the natural process of aging, sudden impact noises or middle ear infection. However, tinnitus can also be caused by stress, reaction to certain medicines, neck or head injuries, or other untreated medical conditions.

How does tinnitus affect you?

Left untreated tinnitus can have a devastating impact on your daily life. It may lead to stress, anger, concentration problems, isolation, sleep loss, and depression. Some people become very sensitive to places with constant talking or loud music and thus avoid such social situations. To others tinnitus is so disturbing that a full night’s sleep is impossible – while some people are able to ignore their tinnitus most of the time. 

No matter the intensity of your tinnitus, we most likely can help you to soothe and relieve your tinnitus at Audika.

How to relieve tinnitus

There is no cure for tinnitus, but there are many ways to take control of it and reduce its impact on your life. The combination of sound therapy, education and counselling can be very effective. It may help you sleep better, cope with your tinnitus and learn how to avoid certain situations and circumstances. 

Sound therapy can be a helpful tool in managing your tinnitus. You will be listening to sounds, and although sound cannot eliminate tinnitus, it may help you feel that your tinnitus is reduced or simply gone. By listening to different types of sound, it becomes easier to keep your attention away from the tinnitus and help you focus on something more pleasant. Together with your hearing professional, you can find the sound therapy that gives you the most effective relief.
