The purpose of this page is to help you get to grips with the condition known as tinnitus…
This is not to say there is a cure for tinnitus, it is an established fact that there is no cures for tinnitus… But if you can identify the causes of your tinnitus, there is much you can do to get tinnitus relief.
Tinnitus is best described as the perception of noise in the
absence of any acoustic stimulus.
When you hear these noises, be they a ringing in your ears, whistling, hissing or roaring noises in the ears, you are experiencing tinnitus. Everybody experiences or interprets these noises somewhat differently. They are subjective…. In other words, only you can hear them.
The noises cannot be heard by anyone else and NO, you are not going crazy!
Most people experience tinnitus at some time in their lives, but about 17% of the general population suffers quite severely from tinnitus. Some 12 million Americans are that badly affected by tinnitus that they are unable to function normally. By this I mean they are unable to live normal lives, go to work, just can’t sleep, and suffer severely from stress, depression and anxiety.
