You may or may not have heard about tinnitus, but you will surely be familiar with having a ringing or roaring sound coming from your ear. If you are, you have experienced tinnitus. And if it happens frequently, you could use tinnitus hearing aids in Saint Lucie County.
Tinnitus is not an illness in itself, but an indicator of another problem. While many times the causes of tinnitus are not known, some conditions that are identified to produce tinnitus are:
• Ménière's disease
• Head injury
• Hearing loss
• Consuming too much caffeine
When tinnitus is chronic, there is a good chance that it’s being caused by hearing loss. Hearing loss and other hearing problems are subtle and hard to notice, so if you have tinnitus constantly the best course of action is to get tested for hearing loss.
Having hearing aids fitted can help you not only address said hearing loss, but also reduce tinnitus. Once you’re able to hear better what’s going on around you, you will notice less and less the ringing in your ears.
If you have tinnitus, the first thing you should do is get tested with an audiologist. Once your hearing evaluation is completed, your audiologist will review the results of the exam with you. If you have hearing loss, hearing devices may be recommended
Your audiologist will review different hearing aid styles and technologies with you, and may recommend a listening experience with hearing devices. You may get hearing aids behind the ear, in the ear or completely in the canal, according to your needs.
