New to tinnitus

If you are new to tinnitus, things can be overwhelming. Here we help you through the key things you need to consider.

Have you seen your GP? 

Tinnitus is not always serious, but we recommend seeing your GP before you do anything else. There are tests that your GP can do (such as hearing) which can help find the right treatment for you.
