How Andrew’s Tinnitus Treatment Helps Him Concentrate On His Studies

Oct 20, 2016 How Andrew’s Tinnitus Treatment Helps Him Concentrate On His Studies

The ringing in Andrew's ears drove him crazy and interfered with his school work. See how we helped him get some much-needed relief as he headed off to college.

Andrew* is 18 years old and has normal hearing - but the ringing in his ears drove him crazy. His tinnitus was most troublesome when he was in a quiet place and when trying to concentrate. In high school it was very difficult for him to focus while studying and taking tests.

As Andrew was preparing to head to college this past summer, he was scared that his tinnitus would interfere with his school work. The month before college started, we fitted him with tinnitus masking devices in both ears. He noticed immediate relief from the ringing and couldn’t believe the improvement. He wears the devices on an as-needed basis and uses different settings to provide maximal tinnitus relief in any situation. Andrew tells us that he feels more comfortable and confident now that he can devote his full attention to his studies.

50 Million Have Tinnitus in US

Tinnitus affects around 50 million US adults1. Frequent experience of tinnitus is highest among older adults, non-Hispanic whites, former smokers, and adults with hypertension, hearing impairment, loud noise exposure, or generalized anxiety disorder.1
