When should you or a loved one get checked for tinnitus?
It is estimated that 10% to 15% of adults have prolonged tinnitus requiring medical evaluation. Approximately 50 million Americans suffer from tinnitus, with 2 million Americans suffering from severe tinnitus. The problem is especially significant in the military worldwide, with more than 34 percent of returning veterans from Iraq and Afghanistan suffering from the condition. If you, a loved one, or a veteran you know is suffering, then please send them a link to this page by email!
For those of you who haven’t inquired about your hearing and experience significant changes in your hearing, you might turn up the television, or even repeat yourself a lot because you can’t hear over the noises in your ear. It’s time to come in and get checked. You don’t have to live with this forever. The options made available by the REM Audiologists in New Jersey and Pennsylvania can help lessen those unpleasant experiences.
For those who are returning patients, it’s important to come in and see how your hearing loss is changing over time. If you start to experience those initial problems that originally brought you in, the level of your tinnitus might have changed due to consistent exposure to those harmful noise levels.
