Hearing aid sellers say these can help tinnitus



Alison Stanton, AZ Republic, June 6, 2012, says 50 million adults suffer from weird ringing and noises in the head. Tinnitus.

Usually, says one hearing center owner, this comes from loss in the high frequency ranges.

Head injuries can also cause this.

Of course, this requires you go to some doctor in order to try to stop it or sleep better.

There is no cure. Tinnitus Retraining Therapy (TRT) helps you get used to it. Or you can BUY some device to create a masking noise.

So there are approaches. But hang onto your wallet would be my advice.

For more info, go to American Academy of Audiology, audiology, org, or American Tinnitus Association, ata.org.

I get this sometimes for a few minutes—a hummmm….you?

I guess it comes in much worse forms.
