Tinnitus Management

Tinnitus is commonly known as ‘ringing in the ears’.

What Causes Tinnitus?

Tinnitus is a symptom of other problems with your hearing system. There are many causes of tinnitus. Common causes include:

  • Exposure to loud noise – like machinery or music – over a period of time can result in tinnitus
  • Extreme stress or trauma
  • Wax pressing against your ear drum
  • Otosclerosis – an abnormal growth of bone on the middle ear
  • Meniere’s disease – swelling of a duct in the ear
  • A tumour pressing onto the hearing nerve
  • Some prescription and non-prescription medications

Tinnitus is commonly known as ‘ringing in the ears’.

According to the Australian Tinnitus Association, tinnitus affects more than 4 million people in Australia.

The constant noise in the ear can make people irritable, frustrated, depressed and result in sleep problems, poor concentration and mood swings.

Often the first step in exploring avenues for tinnitus management is a full hearing assessment, which helps you understand if hearing loss is present and if referral to a GP is warranted.
