Action point


Many people who suffer from tinnitus (persistent ringing in the ears) find their symptoms to be more noticeable or disruptive in silent environments, particularly when trying to fall asleep at night.

Try playing soft music such as a meditation CD or turning on a fan at night when you are going to bed.

The low level of noise may reduce your tinnitus symptoms and allow you to get a better night’s sleep.
