“The impact of tinnitus is wide-ranging,” says Terence Limb, Doctor of Audiology at Evergreen Speech & Hearing Clinic. Tinnitus can be so annoying that it leads to anxiety, frustration, fear, and depression. “It can also affect concentration and focus – even impacting memory,” he adds. “Tinnitus can profoundly affect people’s lives.”
“Diagnostics is crucial and will tell us where the damage is,” says Dr. Limb. If you think you have tinnitus, start by being evaluated by an audiologist. An audiologist can help you determine the best options for managing the condition. If there are no specific medical issues involved, there are still several steps you can take to help reduce the severity of your tinnitus or help you cope better with the noise.
