What is tinnitus?

Tinnitus is the term for the sensation of hearing a sound in the absence of any external sound. Symptoms of tinnitus are you may hear different types of sound, for example, ringing, whooshing or humming or buzzing in the ear. These can be continuous or they can come and go. The tinnitus might seem like it’s in one ear or both, in the middle of the head or even be difficult to pinpoint. Some people may think the noise is coming from outside and hunt for it until they discover it’s actually inside them!

Occasionally people have tinnitus that has a musical quality and can seem like a familiar tune or song. This generally occurs in older people who have a hearing loss and a strong musical interest. This type of tinnitus is known as musical tinnitus or musical hallucination.*

Hearing Care

1 in 6 adults have hearing loss.

After the age of 60, 54% of us have some kind of hearing loss which increases to more than 75% after the age of 75. However your hearing can change at any time in life.

In most cases, hearing loss occurs gradually. It is painless and invisible and the deterioration is so gradual, it can go virtually unnoticed to the point where it appears ‘normal’ – but it’s not.  Too many people wait far too long before seeking help with their loss of hearing.  Living life to the fullest includes regularly checking on your hearing health.

Hearing requirements change with time so, even if you have had a hearing test in the past or already wear a hearing device, it is advisable to arrange a checkup every twelve months.
