Tinnitus is a condition characterised by the sounds of ringing, buzzing, whistling, humming, hissing or other noises in one or both ears. The sound is internally generated, can be continuous or intermittent, and may vary in volume. It's a relatively common condition and can occur at any age. In fact, according to healthcare service BUPA, one in 10 people will experience mild tinnitus at some point in their lives. Some will experience volumes of low-level background noise. Others will endure high-pitched rumbling sensations that drown out everyday sounds. While there is no quick fix, tinnitus can often improve over time. It’s important you seek advice from your doctor to see if there is an underlying cause that can be treated, such as an ear infection or a buildup of earwax.

The most common type of tinnitus occurs in the form of high-pitched sounds. However, symptoms can materialise in a variety of noises and sensations.
Tinnitus is rarely a sign of a more serious underlying condition. Though in some cases, it can have a significant impact on everyday life. For some people, symptoms can come and go, but for others, it can be very distressing. It can affect concentration levels and may cause problems such as insomnia and depression. Stress tinnitus is awful but hypnosis can help.


There are a number of health problems thought to be associated with tinnitus. Various factors may be involved which can trigger symptoms of tinnitus, such as hearing loss, age-related deafness and genetic damage to the inner ear (including otosclerosis). Regular exposure to loud music, especially in younger people, can also cause sounds of tinnitus.


Less common problems thought to trigger symptoms include:


high blood pressure
anaemia
ear infection and blockages
thyroid problems
diabetes
head injuries
Living with tinnitus
Tinnitus is very individual.


Some people will only occasionally experience symptoms and so the condition can be easier to live with. Others may experience a constant ringing of loud noises, and hearing this all day, every day can have a detrimental effect on their quality of life. The condition can cause a great deal of psychological stress, especially as the sounds cannot be escaped and are more or less continuous. The persistent, loud and disturbing noises can lead to feelings of frustration, fear, anger and anxiety. While stress is not a cause of tinnitus, it can exacerbate it. When quality of life is affected as a result of a condition you cannot control, it's unsurprising that stress can occur. Many of the treatments available will focus on improving everyday life and helping you cope with symptoms. Experts agree hypnosis for tinnitus can be effective for not only addressing symptoms, but also the associated stress.
