Ringing in the Ears – You are not alone! Approximately 50 million Americans experience tinnitus (ringing in the ears). There is no cure available.
The key to proper management is seeking out the correct professional to help. Audiologists are uniquely qualified to help. Some, like me, have advanced training in tinnitus diagnosis and treatment.
If you see advertisement for tinnitus relief, that ask you to see someone other than an audiologist, they do not have the training required. For instance, a hearing instrument specialist may advertise that they can treat tinnitus, but have not received any advanced training. Since the only qualification to become a hearing instrument specialist is a high school diploma and six months of training, they are unqualified to provide these services.
If you see an advertisement for a pill to help you with your tinnitus, none have been shown to be effect as of yet. In fact, some of these formulas may actually make your tinnitus worse.
