Although tinnitus is a very common condition, everyone’s is slightly different. There are different types of tinnitus, and it’s likely yours will fall within one of these categories.
This is the most common type of tinnitus, and it is often caused by exposure to loud noise. It is something only you can hear. It can come and go, and can vary in length and intensity. It is a struggle for many people as the sound overtakes other relevant sounds in the environment making it difficult to focus on what’s important to you.
Subjective tinnitus is usually treated with hearing aids that play a calming noise, distracting you from the ringing, buzzing or other sounds that are experienced with this.
Most people who experience tinnitus, have sensory tinnitus. This is typically a side effect of an impaired auditory system. To date, there is no known cure. Using an established sound management program can help manage it and reduce its negative effects.
Sensory tinnitus is actually a form of subjective tinnitus. It’s usually caused by various disorders that affect the way the brain processes sound. You may feel and off-balance if you have this.
