Tinnitus Awareness Week

Monday 3 February 2014

Tinnitus Awareness Week 2014, running from 3-9 February, aims to bring the condition of noises heard in the head and/or ears to the attention of thousands across the UK.

Affecting at least one in 10 of the UK population, a massive 6.3 million, tinnitus is the unseen condition which can cause distress to individuals of any age. Tinnitus can be mild to severe and can affect sleep and concentration.  It can also lead to anxiety and depression and at this time there is currently no cure.Tinnitus Helpline

The causes are not fully understood, but tinnitus is associated with:

•             Exposure to loud noise

•             Hearing loss

•             Stress and anxiety

•             Ear infections

By encouraging people to talk about tinnitus and highlighting the help that is available, the British Tinnitus Association (BTA), the only national UK charity solely dedicated to supporting people with tinnitus, offer help and support which is so vital in the early stages.

Tinnitus Awareness Week

With 15 of our Band of Brothers suffering from tinnitus and perhaps many more undiagnosed, Help for Heroes urges anyone who might be experiencing tinnitus or would like advice and support about managing it to contact British Tinnitus Association (BTA) on 0800 018 0527 or visit www.tinnitus.org.uk
