DO YOU OR SOMEONE YOU KNOW SUFFER FROM
CONSTANT “RINGING IN THE EARS?”
Maybe it’s not ringing exactly. Some people describe it as hissing, buzzing, whistling, roaring and even chirping. Whatever noise it is, the real issue is something called tinnitus.
Tinnitus (“TIN-a-tus” or “Tin-EYE-tus”) 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!
