What causes tinnitus?
Tinnitus can be caused by a number of factors, including exposure to loud noise, ear infections, aging, head or neck injuries, certain medications, and underlying health conditions.
Is tinnitus permanent?
Tinnitus can be temporary or permanent, depending on the underlying cause. In cases where the underlying cause can be treated or resolved, the tinnitus may go away or become less noticeable. However, in some cases, tinnitus may be permanent. That’s where tinnitus counselling and rehabilitation come in, to provide you with the tools and support needed to manage and alleviate the symptoms of tinnitus
Is tinnitus a sign of hearing loss?
Tinnitus can be a symptom of hearing loss, but it can also occur without any hearing loss. It’s important to also have your hearing checked by your Hearbase audiologist if you are experiencing tinnitus, as hearing loss can often be a contributing factor.
How can I manage tinnitus?
There are various ways to manage tinnitus, including sound therapy, cognitive-behavioral therapy, medication, and lifestyle changes such as reducing exposure to loud noise, avoiding caffeine and alcohol, and getting enough sleep. It’s important to work with your Hearbase audiologist to develop a personalised management plan that works for you.
