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.
