Tinnitus Awareness Week will take place from 8-14 February 2016 across the UK.
The week was created by the British Tinnitus Association to raise awareness of this problem which affects so many people.
Tinnitus affects sufferers by creating a ringing or humming noise in the head with no external source. Prolonged exposure to loud music is often the cause.
It can affect all age groups, and it’s thought that about 10% of the population have it all the time.
The aim of Tinnitus Awareness Week is to keep people informed about the condition and the support services this great charity offers to help you deal with it.
The British Tinnitus Association will be highlighting the valuable support service it provides and raise awareness of the UK freephone helpline, 0800 018 0527.
You can find out loads more about this condition, as well as ways to help prevent it, by visiting the Tinnitus Awareness Week website. And, you can also give donations to this great cause there too.
So, there’s really no excuse not to get involved and get your hearing checked!
