Whilst many people experience tinnitus a small proportion of people are significantly affected by their tinnitus; in which case tinnitus can be distressing, cause sleep disturbances and feel more like a pain.
Tinnitus can have several causes, including balance problems and hearing loss, or even stress and anxiety, therefore, there is no single treatment that is suitable for everyone. Treatment methods can include sound therapy, cognitive behavioural therapy or a hearing aid. Complimentary therapies such as acupuncture may help to relax but there is little research to show the benefits.
