Do you suffer from tinnitus?
According to the American Tinnitus Association, tinnitus is the
perception of sound when no actual external noise is present.
It is commonly referred to as “ringing in the ears,” but it can
actually manifest in a variety of sounds, including buzzing,
hissing, whistling, swooshing and clicking.
If yes, would you describe the sound as a:
Is the volume high enough to hear over other sounds around you?
Do you hear the noise constantly or intermittently?
Does the sound keep you up at night?
Have you heard the sound for at least three months?
Did you start hearing the noise after exposure to a loud event?
Did you start taking a new medication before you began to notice
the noise in your ears?
Do you have a problem with significant wax buildup in your ears?
Have you been diagnosed with any of the following?
Temporomandibular joint disorder (TMD or TMJ)
Psychological disorder (Anxiety, Depression, Chronic Stress)
Concussion or other brain injury
Are you avoiding activities and situations you used to enjoy?
If you answered “yes” to one or more of these questions, you could
have tinnitus. There is no complete cure, but there are many
effective treatment options to alleviate discomfort.
