Do you know what TINNITUS is?
Tinnitus is noise that originates within the ear rather than from the outside environment. This may affect one or both ears.

Different people hear different sounds and these have been described as like a “ringing” sound, a “buzzing” sound, a “humming noise, “like running water”, a “whistling” sound or like the “sound from a seashell held close to the ear.”

There are several types of tinnitus and for more information please contact Deafness Resource Centre, 01744 23887

Tinnitus is a condition for which there is no medical cure, although currently  there is a lot of research and this condition can be  very distressing and debilitating.
