Tinnitus and Hyperacusis

Tinnitus explained

Tinnitus is the perception of any sound that comes from inside your body or brain rather than an outside source. If you have tinnitus you may be experiencing a ringing, buzzing, roaring or hissing sound in your ears or in your head.


Tinnitus is very common – so you are not alone.

Many people experience temporary tinnitus, which means it usually disappears after a few hours or days.  It can mostly be heard when you are in a quiet environment with no other sound. Some common causes of temporary tinnitus are

  • Exposure to loud noise

  • Ear infections

  • Wax build up


Tinnitus is generally associated with your emotional status and stress.  You may develop tinnitus after a life changing, emotional or stressful event.


Tinnitus is also associated with hearing difficulty.  In this case, the tinnitus could be caused by the brain trying to compensate for the absence of sound stimulation from the ear.

You may be an individual who perceives tinnitus as more of an annoyance than an actual problem. This is because your brain is able to supress and ignore the sounds with almost no effort. So the tinnitus remains in the background and does not have an effect on you or your daily life.

However, you may be an individual who is negatively affected by your tinnitus.  This can affect your day to day life, activities, concentration, sleep and overall wellbeing, resulting in you feeling anxious, stressed or even depressed. If you are one of these individuals, don’t despair! There are many ways in which The Art of Hearing can help you manage your tinnitus.
