Paula L. Schwartz, AuD Many people find that amplification alone addresses the tinnitus. One of the many theories of tinnitus is that it is neurological activity resulting from cochlear damage or hearing loss. Therefore, address the hearing loss and potentially address the tinnitus. Secondly, amplification of the ambient environment presents contrast sound making the tinnitus... Read more
Alicia D.D. Spoor, AuD To date, there is no Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved drugs to treat tinnitus. Although there is no cure for tinnitus, there are ways to help treat tinnitus. [This analogy is similar to cancer- there is no cure, but there are treatments.] First and foremost, you need to see the proper professionals. Audiologists are the licensed... Read more

Cole Campbell, AuD It's possible she may still have fluid in her middle ear even if it is not infected which would explain her "trouble hearing" and possibly the ringing as well. I would have her hearing checked by an audiologist who could easily determine if there is still middle ear fluid and how much, if any, hearing loss she has as a result of the fluid.
Raji Parangad, MAud It is a good device. A hearing aid will not only improve your hearing acquity but will also have the added benefit of masking the tinnitus noise giving yu some relief from the symptom of tinnius. Raji Parangad'My Audiologist"
Andy Bierbaum, BC-HIS Definitely get in to see your Dr, and if possible I would recommend going straight to the ENT. As a Board Certified Hearing Instrument Specialist, it's unfortunate how many times I've had people come into my office after seeing their Primary Care Physician with your same symptoms and all they've been given was a prescription for nasal spray. I am not a... Read more
