We demand Tinnitus to be regarded as an illness not just a symptom and we hope to have a proper documentary about Tinnitus.
Imagine hearing an alien sound 7/24 in your head and everday trying to make it through the day and constantly struggling to focus on your job , family and daily activities. It can happen to you anytime , out of nowhere with no apperant reason.
Tinnitus is the sensation of hearing a sound when no external sound is present.
Main causes of Tinnitus are exposure to loud noise, age-related hearing loss, neurologic injury, ear bone changes, Meniere's disease , malformation of capillaries, acoustic neuroma and certain medications such as Aspirin , antibiotics, cancer medications , Quinine medications.
There are millions of people around the world suffering from this debiliating illness. So far there are no scientific proven treatmens or cure. Tinnitus may cause psychological, physical and social problems , depression leading to suicidal toughts which results in more and more people taking their own lives due to this crippling illness. Tinnitus becoming extremely common among young people as the daily noise levels increases in the loud world we live in.
We want to raise awareness to this unseen condition , warn people about how to avoid becoming a Tinnitus sufferer and make our voices heard hoping it will result in more foundation and research for this silent torturer which robbed us from living a normal life.
