Gardner Audiology, a Tampa Bay hearing healthcare company has has approximately 10,000 patients. Many of them have obtained relief with our prescription hearing aids.
Often called “ringing in the ears,” tinnitus is the perception of a sound in a person’s ears or head that has no external source. Many people with tinnitus experience a ringing, humming, buzzing, or chirping sound. Others even perceive singing or music. Experts believe that neural hyperactivity—that is, overstimulation of the nerves—leads to this perception of sound.
Often, tinnitus is the by-product of noise exposure, although it can be caused by other things as well. Tinnitus is almost always accompanied by hearing loss and is considered a symptom of hearing loss.
Many people can manage the annoyance of tinnitus with hearing aids. A good number of high-tech hearing aids now include integrated “sound therapy” specifically designed to offer relief from tinnitus.
Unfortunately, teenagers are increasingly experiencing tinnitus, possibly as a result of frequent noise exposure, according to a study published in Scientific Reports.
