Last week was Tinnitus Awareness Week and we at Right at Home Australia would like to take a moment to acknowledge this potentially devastating disease.
Tinnitus is characterised by hearing unwanted sounds, such as a ringing, buzzing or humming noise in your ears or head. For one in eight people, these sounds never disappear. It can be constant or occasional, loud or soft, mild or severe and can be heard in one or both ears or “in the head”. In some cases, tinnitus may be the result of a simple issue like wax build up in your ears, the effect of medications, or exposure to loud noise.
Although the condition is more common in older adults – possibly due to the natural ageing process – tinnitus can affect people of all ages, including young children. According to Tinnitus Australia, one in three people in Australia live with tinnitus and one in six experience it constantly.
