Tinnitus*Tinnitus
Do you hear a noise?

Perceived noises in the ears and often in the head also, in the absense of any external source is known as Tinnitus. These noises are often described as buzzing, clicking, ringing or whistling sounds and can even be quite tuneful! Sounds can be heard in either or both ears or in the middle of the head and can be high, medium or low in pitch. Sounds can be constant or come and go.

Often the precise cause of Tinnitus is not fully understood but at the present time it is thought that sounds can be the result of damage to microscopic nerve cells in the cochlea. Stress, loud noises, some prescription drugs, age, infections and Meniers Disease can be other causes.

Hypnotherapy and stress management can help to manipulate symptoms and desensitise the patient to the sounds.
