Becoming aware of Tinnitus

Monday, March 14, 2011

Local MP Meg Munn MP recently visited the British Tinnitus Association (BTA) to meet the Chief Executor, David Stockdale, and the small team based in Heeley constituency. The organisation works to find a cure for Tinnitus, and to raise awareness of this hearing problem.

 

Tinnitus affects 10% of adults in the UK who experience a ringing noise inside their head when there is no external noise.  It has many causes; such as exposure to loud noise or muscle spasms within the ear. However Tinnitus is usually caused by stress, which then causes more stress through worrying about possible brain tumours.

 

Many people experience the discomfort caused by Tinnitus and the BTA try to provide people with information which may reduce the symptoms of the problem. Research into finding a cure has increased substantially in the last decade and has made huge progress.

 

Meg said:

 

“I learnt a lot from my visit and believe the work the BTA are doing is important in raising awareness and understanding of Tinnitus.  It affects so many adults in the UK and it is important that the BTA keep up their work into developing a cure.”
