Tinnitus (pronounced ti-ni-tis), or “ringing in the ears,” is the perception of a sound in one or both ears, without there being an external cause for that sound.
There is no one cure for tinnitus. But there are some options that can alleviate your symptoms and make your tinnitus more bearable. Hearing aids are the best treatment option for tinnitus. With today’s technology, hearing aids can now feature a tinnitus managing program that will use peaceful sounds to mask the annoying noises. Along with hearing aids use, other sound-generating machines may help to mask the noise from your ears such as fish tanks, low-volume music, and indoor waterfalls.
