Tea for Tinnitus

This week is also Tinnitus Awareness Week! Lasting until the 13th February, this week is all about raising awareness on the current research for the cure, as well as the research the British Tinnitus Association (BTA) is involved with.

The BTA aim to support and provide information for people already suffering with tinnitus. Their goal is to encourage prevention too and search for effective treatment. With the vision of ‘A world where no one suffers from tinnitus’, the charity aims to find a cure to give those with tinnitus the support they need.

What is tinnitus?

Tinnitus is the sensation of hearing a sound even though you can’t hear any external noises. The symptoms can consist of hearing the following.

  • A ringing sound
  • A whooshing or a humming sound
  • A buzzing in your ear

It’s important to note that these symptoms can be continuous or can come and go. You might hear the symptoms above in one ear or both, and it can even seem like it’s coming from the middle of your head. Others find it hard to pinpoint the source.

Who can get tinnitus?

People of all ages can experience tinnitus, even children. According to the BTA, “about 30% of people will experience tinnitus at some point in their lives” with about 13% of people experiencing persistent tinnitus. However, tinnitus is more common in those who are already suffering from hearing loss or other ear-related problems.

Tinnitus is a different experience for each person. Some people are able to achieve their daily activities while others are affected severely.

Different types of tinnitus

For those who don’t know much about tinnitus, there are a few types to take note of such as:

Tea for Tinnitus

Taking part in Tea for Tinnitus is one way to get involved. This is a simple fundraising activity where you just put the kettle on and have some tea with your family, friends or colleagues.
