Hearing Loss and Tinnitus

Posted by Julie, Volunteer Mentor @julieo4, Jun 15 9:54am

Tinnitus is extremely common with hearing loss. In fact, nearly everyone who has hearing loss will tell you they have or have had tinnitus to some degree. When hearing loss has not been diagnosed, tinnitus may be a sign of mild hearing loss; an indicator that one should probably have their hearing tested. It is also possible to have tinnitus without hearing loss. Tinnitus, those pesky head sounds that may sound like crickets, sirens or buzz saws, is annoying. While most tinnitus is tolerable, in some instances it can be disabling. LEARN MORE…. Thursday, June 18th. THIS WEEK. You have to register.

A 'FREE to attend' research symposium held by the national organization; 'The Hearing Loss Assn. of America Inc.' (HLAA); will focus on tinnitus research. You can register to attend this session, and the entire 2 day conference at http://www.experiencehlaa.org This event is being held in lieu of the annual national convention of HLAA. Presenters who would normally have been at the national convention have offered to share their prepared information in this forum. There are many other presentations of interest during the 2 day online event. This is a golden opportunity for people who seek information on hearing loss. Again, http://www.experiencehlaa.org to register.

The mission of HLAA is to OPEN THE WORLD OF COMMUNICATION TO PEOPLE WITH HEARING LOSS THROUGH EDUCATION, INFORMATION SHARING, PEER SUPPORT, AND ADVOCACY. HLAA, a consumer based organization ,does not endorse products, services or providers. http://www.hearingloss.org

I do have tinnitus, but either I'm so used to it, or it's not a profound case. It sounds like crickets and I'm able to ignore it. I'm sorry you missed the HLAA presentation last week. HLAA does plan to post the seminars on the website, but when I checked I did not see it. Please keep checking. I'm sure it will be up soon. http://www.hearingloss.org There is some information about tinnitus on the website, but it's from past presentations.
