People with Tinnitus may find that the most effective way of getting a good night’s sleep is trying a few relaxation exercises before going to bed as well as avoiding caffeine in the evening.
(PRWEB UK) 17 July 2013
Following an increase in enquiries, Hidden Hearing has released information on how to spot the symptoms of Tinnitus as well as how to deal with them.
Around one in six people in the UK suffer with some form of Tinnitus, which can make relaxing and sleep difficult. Hidden Hearing explains:
- While Tinnitus is not considered an illness or disease, it can be terribly frustrating to live with. Many people with Tinnitus will hear a continuous buzzing, whistling or ringing noise and have symptoms of hearing loss.
- This continuous noise can mean Tinnitus sufferers will often have difficultly relaxing, sleeping and with sound sensitivity – which can be incredibly frustrating. Around 50% of people with Tinnitus will sleep poorly.
- People with Tinnitus may find that the most effective way of getting a good night’s sleep is trying a few relaxation exercises before going to bed as well as avoiding caffeine in the evening.
- However, a solution that is particularly useful for Tinnitus sufferers is to invest in a white noise generator. Sold in the Hidden Hearing online accessories shop, the device allows the sufferer to become distracted from their Tinnitus and have a restful sleep. Alternatively, a radio or television left on low volume may be useful.
- For those who are conscious of disturbing a partner, there is also the option of pillow speakers.
