Tinnitus is a buzzing or ringing sound in your ear which can be constant or intermittent. For some people, it can be extremely difficult to live with. Hearing aids are sometimes helpful as they can help to mask the tinnitus. Relaxation is also a way to reduce your awareness of the noise. The British Tinnitus Association has everything you need to know about tinnitus, along with a support helpline, and information about how and where to access help and support: https://www.tinnitus.org.uk

If the tinnitus is severe, on one side only or associated with any other ear symptoms such as hearing loss or unsteadiness, you should always seek medical advice. To find out more: https://www.theentclinic.co.uk/conditions/ear-conditions/tinnitus/

In view of the COVID-19 pandemic, we are now offering patients video consultations to comply with government guidelines set out over the next few weeks. This will ensure staff and patient safety but also means patients can still be seen. We can offer advice, treatment and tests where appropriate. Please contact us for further information or to book a video consultation.
