Tinnitus is a common condition with all age groups even young children. 30% of the population will experience Tinnitus at some point in their lives and 10% will experience Tinnitus on a regular basis.
It affects people differently but they will hear different sounds in their ears such as a ringing, buzzing or tapping which can be faint, medium or very loud. The sounds can come and go but some people might experience them consistently.
Whilst Tinnitus isn’t recognised as a disease or illness anyone living with this condition will tell you otherwise. It can be very stressful and uncomfortable. It can also interfere with sleep which can amplify the situation. We all need a good nights sleep for our overall health and wellbeing.
Tinnitus is thought to be caused by a change, either on a physical or emotional level. It can follow an ear infection or disorder, e.g. Ménière’s disease, or following a period of stress and anxiety. There is a very definite link with this condition and people experiencing stress, anxiety or depression.
