 Tinnitus Management

Hissing, buzzing, roaring

What are the signs?

Persistent sound when no external sound is present.

Tinnitus is a condition that affects the auditory system, causing sufferers to hear a persistent sound when no external sound is present. Because of its subjective nature, the perceived sound can differ between sufferers. While often characterised as an unpleasant ringing in the ears, tinnitus symptoms have also been described by those experiencing it as a hissing, buzzing, whistling and roaring, leading many to seek tinnitus retraining therapy in Melbourne from a specialist clinic.

The First Signs

The first (and subsequent) tinnitus symptoms can include:

  • Ringing, pulsating, buzzing, whistling or hissing in the ears
  • Losses in concentration
  • Difficulty sleeping
  • Sensation of fullness in the ears
  • Stress
  • Dizziness
  • Headaches

HOW DO YOU TEST FOR TINNITUS?

If you’re affected by tinnitus, or suspect you may be suffering from it, Victorian Hearing can help. We provide patients with a comprehensive tinnitus treatment and management program, designed to educate sufferers of all aspects of the condition. During the two hour program at our Melbourne clinic, our friendly and experienced audiologists will establish a full case history by asking relevant questions. We’ll then conduct a full diagnostic hearing test to determine the extent of your tinnitus symptoms, before trying to diagnose the pitch and volume of the sound that you’re experiencing. After testing is complete, we’ll discuss the results with you and suggest tinnitus therapy options.

CAN YOU CURE TINNITUS?

There is currently no cure for tinnitus, as the noise causes irreparable damage to the sound-sensitive cells of the cochlea, a spiral-shaped organ found within the inner ear. However, it can be prevented with the use of adequate hearing protection. A specialist can also provide a range of strategies for tinnitus relief, such as tinnitus retraining therapy, enabling you to be able to manage the condition with ease.
