Tinnitus is the term for hearing sounds that come from inside your body, rather than from an outside source.
It's often described as 'ringing in the ears', although several sounds can be heard, including buzzing, humming, grinding, hissing and whistling.

Adult hearing aids
The NHS loans hearing aids to people with hearing loss free of charge. This includes free repairs, batteries and servicing. Many areas now charge for lost hearing aids, but you'll be told about any costs at your fitting appointment.
In the UK, both analogue and digital hearing aids are commonly used. Most hearing aids prescribed through the NHS are now digital.
