Headbands for tinnitus sufferers

Dr Hilary joins Lorraine to talk through the health stories and headlines making the news this week, including why a headband could offer some comfort to tinnitus sufferers.

Tinnitus is not an illness or disease but a term used to describe a constant ringing, whistling and buzzing in the ears. It can be very distressing for the affected individual, often leading to issues with sleep, concentration and mood.

But could a new headband masking the noise help sufferers to get a better night's sleep?
