You are not alone. This ringing or buzzing noise in one or both of the ears, is known as tinnitus and affects an estimated 10-15% of the population1.
Studies have shown that 85% of patients suffering with tinnitus also have a hearing loss. Wearing a hearing aid has been shown to be beneficial in reducing the annoyance of tinnitus.
Although there is no cure for tinnitus, you’ll be relieved to know that there are various effective forms of treatment available.
