Tinnitus affects about 10% of the UK population, usually caused by damage to the inner ear from loud noise or ototoxic (ear poison) prescribed medicines.
This condition can only be understandable by fellow suffers. The condition affects the sufferer's whole life and their loved ones.
Tinnitus is a continual noise in the head, 24/7, you can not escape the noise. Trying to lead a normal life is very difficult, sometimes impossible.
This petition is to draw attention to the severity of the condition and have it recognized as a disability.
This petition closed early because of a General Election
