Do you have ringing in the ear? Is there a solution for Tinnitus?

February 20, 2019    Audiology, Tinnitus

Are you or someone you know experiencing ringing in the ears? You are not alone! TINNITUS is pronounced either ti-NIGHT-us or TIN-i-tus. Both pronunciations are correct; the American Tinnitus Association uses ti-NIGHT-us. The word is of Latin origin, meaning "to ring or tinkle like a bell.” Tinnitus is defined as the perception of sound when no external sound is present, and is often referred to as “ringing in the ears.” Tinnitus can also be described as hissing, roaring, whistling, chirping, or clicking sounds - every person suffering from tinnitus has their own variation of sound. The American Tinnitus Association estimates that more than 50 million Americans experience tinnitus. Of these, 12 million have tinnitus that is so severe that medical attention is required. Furthermore, approximately 2 million people have tinnitus that is so severely debilitating they cannot function in their daily lives.
