Silence is the great enemy of tinnitus people. The perception of other ambient noises, in fact, reduces the contrast with tinnitus, so that the latter becomes less present and eventually disappears from consciousness.
Change the awareness of tinnitus
If you can change the negative meaning that you associate with tinnitus, you can better understand this sound stimulus. As a result, the subcortical filters recognize the stimulus as a neutral sound, such as the sound of swallowing. We swallow countless times a day without being aware of how much noise it makes. But if you pay attention when you swallow, you hear it. Tinnitus can also reach a stage where you will hear it only if you pay attention.
Relaxation, a hobby, music or sports can accentuate the effect mentioned above because they help to shift your attention. You can also try to focus voluntarily on sounds in your environment, such as a fountain or chirping birds.
If these three remedies do not allow you to relieve the discomfort caused by your tinnitus, it is best to contact a hearing center in your area. The audiologist has tinnitus experience and can help you.

How do I know if I have hearing loss?
At first, a hearing loss is not noticed.
What you hear may seem quite right, even if you already have a small hearing loss. In reality, your brain adapts merely to the new situation and compensates for weak signals from your ears. After a while, your brain forgets how to hear, because it does not remember the sound of words, you become deaf!
