(PRWEB UK) 5 February 2013
The High Flying Birds front man and former Oasis guitarist revealed he is experiencing constant ringing in the ears, during a recent interview with Talksport DJ Andy Goldstein.
Diagnosed by doctors, he joins other music stars including The Who’s Pete Townshend and Coldplay’s Chris Martin who also suffer from the condition after years of playing loud music shows.
The guitarist revealed he has had a brain scan to get to the bottom of the constant ringing in his ears.
Tinnitus is characterised by ringing, buzzing or whistling in one or both ears, when there is no external sound causing it. Around one in ten people suffer with Tinnitus in the UK.
A spokesperson from Hidden Hearing said:
“By Noel Gallagher and other celebrities talking about their experience with Tinnitus, hopefully we will see more people aware of the condition and taking steps to protect their ears from damage and hearing loss. For those that already suffer from Tinnitus, we feature a range of tips and advice on our website to help ease the symptoms of the condition.”
