Tests and Treatments
If you have hearing loss, your doctor might recommend that you be fitted for a hearing aid.
Research is ongoing to find new techniques to manage this side effect and there are a number of things you can do to help manage hearing problems:
- Avoid loud noises to prevent further damage.
- Drink plenty of water to avoid dehydration, which can worsen symptoms.
- Avoid stress, anxiety and fatigue.
- Use a quiet radio, television or any low level sounds when you are trying to rest. The background sound may help you ignore the tinnitus and make it easier to sleep or rest.
