Tinnitus: Everything you need to know


Most of us have experienced that irritating humming in our ears when tucked up in bed after a concert. However, for some people, the humming never stops.

Tinnitus is a symptom within the auditory system causing consistent or intermittent noise in the ears or the head. Thousands of sufferers manage their lives whilst living with this condition.  

Tinnitus is caused by damage to the inner ear or to the part of the brain where sounds are processed. The most common causes occur from exposure to loud sounds, earwax build-up, allergies and emotional stress. With such common roots to the problem, it’s no wonder that 10% of the UK suffer from it!
