Helpful Tips When Talking with A Doctor about Tinnitus

Q:
Can you give me some helpful tips about how to talk with a doctor about tinnitus?

A:
How your tinnitus affects your life is important for a doctor to diagnose your condition. So your doctor may ask:

  • What are your symptoms?
  • Does your tinnitus make it hard to finish daily tasks?
  • Does your tinnitus make it hard to sleep?

Your doctor may also ask:

  • Have you experienced long-term exposure to loud noises?
  • Have you had any head or neck injuries?

You also need to answer questions about the conditions of your medication and diets.
