Are your ears ringing?

Your world is alive with sound. Laughter, unforgettable melodies, waves breaking on the shore — all these sounds enrich your life. At other times, all you want to hear is silence. So what happens when one stubborn sound won’t allow you to enjoy peace and quiet anymore?

Tinnitus can manifest as a ringing, buzzing, humming, or similar noise you hear even though there is no outside source for the sound. While you may have been told there is no cure, that doesn’t mean there aren’t ways to find relief and restore your peace of mind. You can learn to live with tinnitus by finding out how to control it, instead of letting it control you.

If you hear an annoying noise that never seems to go away, it can be distracting, put you on edge, and increase stress and anxiety. Because only you can hear it, you might feel like no one understands what you’re going through. But this phenomenon is very real. It’s called tinnitus and it’s a more common condition than you might think.
