As an essential medical service we will be staying open throughout the lockdown. Fiona Idriss, our senior audiologist with a special interest in tinnitus, is accepting self-referrals for a free 15-minute telephone consultation.
On this call, Fiona can offer much-needed support and practical guidance. She will explore your symptoms and some options to manage them. These include advice on accessing tinnitus clinics, ear nose and throat consultations and voluntary organisations.
What is tinnitus?
Tinnitus is commonly, but not exclusively, associated with hearing loss. If you seem to hear whooshing, ringing, hissing or constant tones within your ears or head, then you are experiencing tinnitus. Another, rarer, form is “objective” tinnitus. An examining clinician can sometimes hear this – often a clicking or pulsing sound. “Musical” tinnitus may also be experienced when music, songs or other “meaningful” sound may be heard repeatedly.
It is always advisable to contact your GP to discuss troublesome tinnitus. It is also worth looking at the excellent helpline and website run by the British Tinnitus Association here , of which we are proud corporate sponsors.
If you would like help and advice with your tinnitus during the lockdown please call us today on 0800 028 6179 or email [email protected] to arrange your free telephone consultation with Fiona.
