How Does Tinnitus Affect PeopleHow Does Tinnitus Affect People?

The condition can have a serious effect on a person’s quality of life, particularly in the period after the person is initially affected.

Coping with tinnitus noises can be debilitating, leading to anxiety and depression; loss of interest in work, leisure activities and relationships.

Sleep may be disturbed and concentration affected. Little understanding by others of a condition that is not visible can increase a person’s isolation. It is estimated that about 10% of people report persistent tinnitus, and about one in ten of these are significantly troubled by the tinnitus.

However, with time, the great majority of people do learn to live with tinnitus, and have a good quality of life in spite of it.
