Ringing in the ears, buzzing, humming, or crickets are terms often used to describe Tinnitus. Nearly 50 million Americans experience some type of hearing loss, with approximately 20 million dealing with some type of Tinnitus.

Tinnitus is your brain’s reaction to a hearing loss, it’s not a disease in and of itself, but rather a symptom. It can significantly affect your overall health and social well-being. Even moderate cases can interfere with your ability to work and socialize.

Although Tinnitus affects people differently, if you have Tinnitus, you also may experience fatigue, stress, sleep problems, trouble concentrating, memory problems, depression, anxiety and irritability.

Do you experience symptoms of Tinnitus, but have been told that you will just have to live with it? Although there is no cure for Tinnitus, modern hearing aid technology will help restore your hearing and the devices also have Tinnitus treatment options. Treatment is as individual as the Tinnitus itself, so no one treatment plan works for everyone.

Here are just a few comments from patients that have had their Tinnitus treated:
