Do you or someone you know suffer from constant “ringing in the ears”?

Maybe it’s not ringing exactly. Some people describe it as hissing, buzzing, whistling, roaring and even chirping. Whatever the noise, the real issue is something called Tinnitus.

Tinnitus is a medical term for the sensation of hearing sound in your ears or head when no external sound is present. It can be continuous or intermittent, have single or multiple tones, and the volume you perceive to hear can range from barely there to roaring.

The important thing to know is that tinnitus is not a condition or a disease. Instead, it’s a symptom – typically of something bigger, like an ear infection, high blood pressure or, most common, hearing loss. It’s a signal that something has gone wrong somewhere.

It’s also important to know that everyone’s tinnitus is different which is why finding relief has been so elusive – until now!
