Is Tinnitus affecting your life?

This week is Tinnitus Awareness Week.

Tinnitus is the name for hearing noises that are not caused by sounds coming from the outside world. It’s common and not usually a sign of anything serious. It might get better by itself and there are treatments that can help.

Tinnitus can sound like:

  • Ringing
  • Buzzing
  • Whooshing
  • Humming
  • Hissing
  • Throbbing
  • Music or singing

You may hear these sounds in 1 or both ears, or in your head. They may come and go, or you might hear them all the time.

If you hear these sounds regularly or constantly or its getting worse, book an appointment to see your GP.
