Tinnitus is the medical term for the perception of sound that does not have an external source. The sound could be ringing, buzzing, humming or even more complex sounds, such as music. Sometimes the tinnitus beats in time with the person’s pulse, which is known as pulsatile tinnitus.
NHS Shropshire Audiology offers a range of support services for people with tinnitus. If you are concerned about tinnitus then the first step is to arrange an appointment with your GP.
Your GP may arrange for you to see an Ear, Nose & Throat Consultant and / or an Audiologist who may be able to help you manage the tinnitus more effectively.
There is more information about tinnitus on the British Tinnitus Association website (see details below)
