Improving awareness of tinnitus

Tuesday, March 13, 2012

Meg Munn MP visited the office of the British Tinnitus Association, based in her Heeley constituency, to meet its Chief Executive, David Stockdale. David told Meg that they are currently working on improving awareness of the condition amongst General Practitioners (GPs). Unfortunately too many people who go to their GPs with ringing in their ears are told that there is nothing that can be done and they just have to learn to live with it.

While most tinnitus is mild, it can be a sign of an underlying problem and for some people it can be very significant and cause a good deal of distress. There is a great deal that can be done to help people, including ‘sound enrichment’ which means that low level sounds in the environment distract from the internal sounds in the ear.

Meg said:

“I was amazed to find out that tinnitus can affect up to 10% of the population. The British Tinnitus Association is doing a vital job raising awareness of the condition and giving a very clear message that symptoms can be managed and help and support are available.”

The British Tinnitus Association can provide help and advice and more information can be found on their website:  http://www.tinnitus.org.uk/

There’s also a help line 0800 018 0527
