The Tinnitus Thermometer is a tool to help you explain to your hearing care professional how you’re experiencing tinnitus right now. You will be asked three brief questions and will send your answers to your hearing care professional to discuss at your next appointment.
How you feel about your tinnitus may change, so you may be asked to complete this tool before more than one appointment.
