What is Tinnitus?

People with ‘tinnitus’ experience sound that is not present in the environment, but which is heard in one or both ears or ‘inside the head’.

Tinnitus can range from being mildly annoying to highly distressing. It often accompanies a hearing loss but can also occur with normal hearing.

If tinnitus is affecting the quality of your life, seek help.
