Tinnitus

The word 'tinnitus' comes from the Latin word for 'ringing' and is the perception of sound in the absence of any corresponding external sound. This noise may be heard in one ear, in both ears or in the middle of the head or it may be difficult to pinpoint its exact location.  It can also occur at any age, including in very small children.

This page contains links to managing tinnitus.  You may also wish to explore cognitive behavioural therapy which helps you to manage the condition, alternative therapies (such as massage or meditation) which aid relaxation, or equipment such as wearable white noise generators or sound relaxers (see Equipment section).

There is a huge amount of information already out there to help you and we constantly update our list to bring you links to the latest information, equipment and news about all things hard of hearing (HoH). We hope you find the Directory useful and if you have any useful links that you'd like us to add, please contact us.
