I believe I suffer from tinnitus. What are the next steps?

    • The American Tinnitus Association (ATA) has created a patient map on how to seek treatment for one’s tinnitus.4
    • As described in the figure, first and foremost, stay calm and take care of your personal health. In a study completed by Schaaf et al (2014), it was concluded through the comparison of stress levels to individuals suffering from psoriasis within a hospital setting that stress is a factor of tinnitus. (Schaaf, Flohre, Hesse, & Gieler, 2014). 5
    • Next, contact your primary care physician or hearing healthcare professional, such as an ENT or Certified Audiologist.
    • Ensure to create a support system of not only those involved with the medical treatment and management for your tinnitus, but also family, friends and possible support groups. Having such a collection of individuals and teams can lead to improved emotional and social components to one’s quality of life.
    • Lastly, do not become discouraged by those who claim there is no hope for relief from your tinnitus. There are methods to help alleviate your symptoms.viii
