“I definitely recommend it. It changed my life. I’m more relaxed and it has to be because of Lenire”.
When retired schoolteacher Órla O’Connell got a sudden illness, she woke up with a ringing in her ears that would not go away. She had suffered a TGA, or a transient global amnesia, while on holiday with friends in 2015. This is a sudden, temporary episode of memory loss that can’t be attributed to a more common neurological condition, such as epilepsy or stroke. This caused her to repeat the same sentence over and over for more then four hours.
When she eventually came to, in hospital, the first thing she noticed was a ringing in her head. From there this tinnitus became really bothersome for Órla. She admits that even though tinnitus brought new challenges, she just got on with things regardless.

Night-time was when her tinnitus was at its worst and she also found that it began to impact the enjoyment she got from her hobbies.
Her interests are spending time with friends socialising, travelling, playing golf and tennis. These things were often affected by her tinnitus. Órla decided that she was going to do something about it. After some online research, she came across Neuromod and Lenire. After chatting with friends about Lenire she discovered that one of them had taken part in the device’s clinical trials and had really benefitted from participating. This swayed her to get the Lenire device and she hasn’t looked back since.
Órla still uses Lenire daily and says that it has had a huge positive impact on her quality of life.
