Dear Arsenal

There are several possibilities availble in the treatment of Tinnitus. I would advise that you start with a full hearing evaluation by an audiologist and then discuss your options. If you don't know of an Audiologist in your area, please let me know and i will gladly refer you (izabelle@widex.co.za)

Please let me know if you need any further information

kind regards

Hi

I experince a irritating sound in my right ear, i can actually hear my heartbeat in this ear. like a watereffect ( like when u have water in your ear, together with the beating sound)

I went to the ear specialist, and he couldnt find anything wrong? said i should test my thyroid, which was also normal.
Is ther any other advice u can give me, or can this also be associated with tinnutis??
