The booklet Your Guide to Tinnitus from The Better Hearing Institute describes tinnitus as “the perception of a sound that has no external source.” Ringing, humming, buzzing or cricket-like sounds are often attributed to the condition, which can be constant or intermittent and can be heard in one or both ears, or in the head. Two tools, the Tinnitus Thermometer and the Tinnitus Communication Guide, are designed to help clinicians build their counseling skills and apply a holistic approach to care of patients with tinnitus. Dr. Damage may have been caused by infrequent exposure to dangerously loud sounds or repeated exposure to moderately loud sound. Once you have chosen a sound, you can customize it by adjusting the volume, the frequency response, and the rate of fluctuation, for example. If you are experiencing tinnitus, the most important step is to get a medical check. Your GP may refer you to an audiologist who may intercept a serious health issue or find your tinnitus is a simple case of ear wax blockage.
