What is Tinnitus?
If you have it, you know it. Tinnitus is a phantom noise that no one else can hear. However, the sound is very real to the person experiencing it. Tinnitus can be present in one ear or both, and it can be constant or fluctuate. Tinnitus can sound like roaring, buzzing, ringing, whistling or even clicking. For some people tinnitus is a mild inconvenience, while for others it is a constant interference with daily life and can dramatically affect one’s concentration or sleep quality.
Tinnitus is actually not a condition on its own. Instead, it is almost always the symptom of an underlying cause or condition.
What Causes Tinnitus?
Healthcare researchers and scientists are unsure of what exactly causes tinnitus, however, there are some causes that are closely linked and correlated with the annoying symptom.
