With the onset of dizziness a few years back, I remember making my husband crazy looking for crickets in our house.
I was certain that there were crickets. Of course, I was the only one who heard them and it took searching every corner to realize that they weren't anywhere but in my own head. I was the only one who could hear that incessant chirp.
Ear noises or tinnitus affects millions of Americans. And it ires me when health care providers say that there is nothing that can be done, just live with it.
If tinnitus has no impact on your daily activities or sleep patterns, you are lucky. Tinnitus make us miserable and because tinnitus can be related to so many health issues, it's prudent to be evaluated.
If you have ear noises that no one else can hear, please take the time to schedule an appointment with an audiologist. You'll be glad that you did.
