Do you hear unusual noise in your head? You are NOT alone! Between 25 and 50 million Americans are plagued with a condition that is imperceptible to other people. They look normal, but they are suffering. In some cases, their agony drives them to consider suicide. Tinnitus is frequently described as ringing in the ears. The sounds are described in many ways: hissing, chirping like crickets, electronic whines, static, rushing water, buzzing, whooshing or humming. Loudness varies, but it can get so intrusive it is hard to think, hear or sleep. Imagine trying to function with a radio stuck between stations at top volume. You can’t turn it down and you can’t turn it off. No one else can hear what the victim hears, but the sounds are not imaginary. Some people report it as a mild “nuisance”, but for many people it can be a debilitating condition. It is now speculated that Vincent Van Gogh, was suffering with severe Tinnitus when he went mad and severed off his own ear! For decades doctors told sufferers there was nothing that could be done to quell the internal noise. Patients were often told to learn to live with it. Some were given drugs like Valium or Xanax to ease the stress brought on by constant ringing, hissing or buzzing. Such solutions are unsatisfactory for millions of patients. Living with constant intrusive noise can ruin the quality of life.
FINALLY there is HOPE for people who suffer with this often debilitating condition! There is a new F.D.A. approved treatment that has dramatically helped over 80% of people to be helped with their Tinnitus. Hoglund Family Hearing and Audiology Center and Southwest Florida Tinnitus and Hearing Center are offering FREE TINNITUS CONSULTATIONS throughout the month of May in honor of May’s designation as BETTER HEARING MONTH. We will also discuss the remarkable success of the Oasis, the F.D.A. approved Tinnitus Treatment device as well as the Duke University studies that report that 86% of Tinnitus Patients treated at Duke reported at least a 40% reduction in their Tinnitus distress and many report that it is no longer a factor in their lives! Please call (239) 992-4327 in Lee County or (239) 498-7142 in Collier County to find out more about this exciting breakthrough in Tinnitus Treatment!
“The results we’ve had have been fantastic!” states Hoglund, “We have DRAMATICALLY changed people’s lives through this remarkable Neuromonics treatment process!” I’d encourage anyone who has been told, “There is NOTHING that can be done for you, you just have to live with it,” to please arrange a Tinnitus Assessment and see that now THERE IS HOPE! “All it will COST is a little of your TIME…but the KNOWLEDGE you receive may be PRICELESS!
Here is some simple advice which may help you cope with the constant noise of tinnitus:
• Avoid anxiety or stress, as these stimulate an already sensitive hearing system.
• Have adequate rest and avoid fatigue.
• Avoid the use of stimulants to the nervous system, including coffee (caffeine), alcohol, and smoking (nicotine).
• Be aware that tinnitus is usually more noticeable after retiring for the night and the surroundings are quieter. Any noise in the room, such as a ticking clock or softly playing radio, helps to mask tinnitus and make it less irritating.
• Use of a Hearing Aid may dramatically reduce the impact of Tinnitus, if hearing loss is also present.
• Use a tinnitus masker hearing aid combination device that adds a Tinnitus Treatment program to an advanced digital hearing aid to solve both the Hearing problem and the Tinnitus distress.
• Avoid situations that can further damage hearing (excessive noise), and protect your ears from injury and occupational hazards. Use protective ear wear when appropriate.
• Many people receive considerable relief from the F.D.A. approved Neuromonics Tinnitus Treatment Program!
Here is one of the remarkable success stories from local residents we have treated at Southwest Florida Tinnitus and Hearing Center.
“When I first was bothered by my tinnitus, it was very annoying and I felt like I had no control over this “ringing” that just wouldn’t go away. Also, being 19 years old at the time when it first started, I really became stressed about how tinnitus was going to affect college, my job, athletics and other fun things I had planned to do in life. The first doctor I went to told me there was nothing that could be done and simply said find a way to cope; Well, that wasn’t very encouraging news.
So googled tinnitus treatment and found Hoglund Family Hearing Center and their Neuromonics treatment. From the beginning of this treatment to the end, there has been so much improvement in decreasing the noise, which I can barely hear now, and also in my mood towards tinnitus. I feel I am in control now because I always know I have something to go to if I need it. I’m very grateful for the Neuromonics device and treatment and the people at Hoglund Family Hearing. There is help for tinnitus and I know Neuromonics works for me.”
