Living with tinnitus

You'll find our leaflet Understanding tinnitus useful if you want to find out more about tinnitus (the perception of noise in your ear(s) or head). It explains what tinnitus is, what causes it, and what to do if you think you have the condition. Our factsheets give you more information about tinnitus therapies, rare forms of tinnitus, and how you can support a loved one with the condition.
