How do I know if I have tinnitus?
While this condition affects each individual differently, there are many common symptoms.
These include the following noises or sound effects:
These symptoms may be experienced in one or both of your ears. These noises are not caused by external sources, and those around you will not be able to hear the noises that you are experiencing.While some people are not exceptionally bothered by symptoms, others can find them to be quite debilitating. Remember, your experience is unique, so don’t be afraid to reach out for help or support.
What are the costs of a hearing service?
The price of the treatment will depend on what treatment approach you would like to as each approach will come with its own equipment, plan, procedures, and overall costs.
|Basic hearing aid||Free – $1,500|
|Advanced hearing aid technology||$2,500-$3,500|
|Premium hearing aid technology||$3,500-$4,500|

How long does the treatment take?
Certain treatments can cause immediate relief of the most severe symptoms. That said, while there is no cure, the symptoms can be managed. In the most mild of cases – for example, after you’ve attended a loud concert – the symptoms will resolve on their own in 16-48 hours.
In more severe instances – for example, when your tinnitus is caused by an underlying health problem – the issue can be treated and reduced with the right diagnosis and treatment. That said, your condition is unlikely to resolve on its own, so reach out for support to reclaim control of your life.

Frequently Asked Questions About Tinnitus in Perth
What causes tinnitus?
Many of the primary causes include:
- Hearing loss: If the hairs inside your ears that deliver sound are bent or broken, they can send random electrical impulses to your brain.
- Inner ear issues: If you have a canal blockage or an inner ear infection, it can increase pressure in your ear.
- Injury: Head or neck injuries can seriously impact your inner ear, compromising nerve or brain function in a way that causes tinnitus in one ear.
- Medication: Some medications can cause this condition as a side effect. These include cancer drugs, diuretics, NSAIDS, certain antimalarial drugs, and antidepressants.
Less commonly, you can also develop this condition due to:
- Muscle spasms in the ear
- Acoustic neuroma
- Certain blood vessel issues
- Chronic conditions like rheumatoid arthritis, migraine, or thyroid issues
Can tinnitus cause secondary symptoms?
Yes. Many people can also experience secondary symptoms like:
- Memory problems
- Difficulty concentrating
- Sleep problems
How can I prevent tinnitus?
This condition doesn’t just have to be treated after it has become a major problem in your life. You can also prevent symptoms by:
- Turning down volumes: Prolonged exposure to loud sounds or music can cause hearing loss which, in turn, can lead to tinnitus.
- Protecting your ears: If you’re going to be at a loud concert, a construction site, an amusement park, or anywhere else where there’s loud sounds, it’s important that you wear ear protection to guard against ear damage.
- Decreasing caffeine and nicotine intake: Believe it or not, caffeine and nicotine can actually affect the blood flow to the ear – particularly when consumed in excess.
- Taking care of your heart: Staying on top of your cardiovascular health can prevent tinnitus that’s caused by blood vessel disorders.
