Can I get hearing aids to help with my tinnitus?

Answer: 

There are now many hearing aids on the market that have an inbuilt 'tinnitus masker' designed to help those people with severe or distressing tinnitus.

For the thousands of people who suffer from a mild form of tinnitus (alongside some hearing loss), hearing aids themselves provide a great deal of benefit in distracting the brain away from the tinnitus sounds. However, those with more severe tinnitus need extra help and the tinnitus masker function built into some hearing aids has proven very effective for many people in this situation.
