The first thing that we need to remember is that tinnitus is a symptom, not a disease or illness in its own right.
This means that there are many different conditions that could cause tinnitus. But if the original condition is well-managed, the tinnitus may also be positively affected.
Several of the causes of tinnitus are also associated with hearing loss, so we always recommend consulting a hearing care professional (HCP) about your tinnitus as the first step. If you need to see a different medical professional, your HCP will support you in the referral process.
