The Sound That No One Else Hears, The Lonely Struggle
Hearing loss and tinnitus !
Hearing loss is a common factor underlying tinnitus, although some people with normal hearing may also experience tinnitus. Loss of hearing is often an unnoticeable and gradual process and many people are surprised when they are told that they have a hearing loss. It is quite common for people to assume incorrectly that it is their tinnitus rather than their hearing loss that is causing hearing difficulties.
Do hearing aids work for tinnitus?
Patients with hearing loss and tinnitus may find relief from the use of hearing aids and other sound amplification devices.
