Tinnitus Education & Relief

What is Tinnitus?

Do you hear noise in your ears that other people can't hear? Annoying sounds, like ringing, buzzing, whistling, whooshing or hissing? If so, you may be suffering from a common condition called Tinnitus. Approximately 36 million Americans report experiencing Tinnitus on a regular basis. Tinnitus is a condition characterized by sounds that originate from within, rather than outside of your ears.

Tinnitus takes on many forms


The most common form produces soft to loud ringing, humming or rushing water sounds.

Tinnitus ringing bell

Tonal tinnitus causes a constant chiming sound, like a musical note played over and over again

Tinnitus Heart

Pulsatile Tinnitus produces sound that pulsates in time with ones heartbeat

Tinnitus Person

Mixed tinnitus causes multiple noises to be heard simultaneously


Objective tinnitus is very rare and produces noises heard not only by the affected individual, but by others as well!

Tinnitus Relief

Although frustrating, Tinnitus is rarely serious. If you are experiencing constant, unexplained noise, it's probably a good idea to see a hearing care professional. A Hearing Care professional can provide a comprehensive hearing screening that includes an audiogram, medical history and physical ear examination designed to pinpoint the origin of your Tinnitus.

Tinnitus has no cure, but there are ways to get relief from it:

  • Try to avoid loud noise like concerts.
  • Pay special attention to your Blood Pressure. High Blood pressure can be a culprit.
  • Watch your diet. Decreasing your salt intake and other stimulants like coffee, soda, tobacco and aspirin can help.
  • Make sure to monitor your stress level.
  • Make sure to get ample rest and work in some moderate exercise.

Sometimes using a competing sound such as a radio, white noise maker or fan can help "cancel out" the noise you hear in your ears. Beltone offers a FREE app on the iPhone(R) App Store and Google Play Store. It features a variety of soothing sounds that not only help relieve Tinnitus, but can also help relieve stress.

Consider keeping track of what triggers your Tinnitus condition and give remedies time to work. Educate your family members and friends if necessary and as for their support.
