According to the Hearing Health Foundation, approximately 90 percent of tinnitus cases come with an underlying hearing loss. As such, a hearing examination is one of the first steps we take when treating those with tinnitus.
Many who have experienced the ringing or clicking sound the effect it can have on our everyday lives. Tinnitus has a different effect from person to person. Several factors may be causing tinnitus, including:
- A loss of hearing linked to age
- Exposure to excessive noise
- Ototoxic medications
- A build-up of earwax
