Healthy Living: New Clinical Trail Stops Tinnitus

Posted: Updated:

Some call it "ringing in the ears" or "head noise" and it affects about one in five people.  

Tinnitus can be distracting, annoying, and very frustrating for many.  

Until now, doctors only tried to mask the symptoms.  

Courtney Hunter has the details on a clinical trial that could stop tinnitus in its tracks.  

As part of this new clinical trial, patients will have treatments for two and a half hours, five days a week from home.  

The Vagus nerve stimulator is also used to treat other conditions such as epilepsy and depression.
