What is that sound in your ears?
Many people experience tinnitus as a ringing in their head or ears but, in fact, it can take a variety of forms. You might experience it as a buzzing, humming or whistling sound. Some people even describe it as the sensation of a roaring ocean. It can be constant or intermittent and you may experience it in one ear or both. Tinnitus may even wake you up when you are asleep. For the vast majority of people, tinnitus is a subjective sound which means only the person who has it can hear it. Tinnitus originates inside of the head and the onset may be gradual or sudden.
What is Tinnitus?
It can be a ringing, buzzing, hissing or roaring sound, and may be temporary or permanent. This noise in your ears or inside your head is unique to you.
An estimated an 80% of people who suffer from tinnitus also experience some degree of hearing loss, though they may be unaware of it. However, even though tinnitus goes hand-in-hand with hearing loss, it is not a disease. Tinnitus is a symptom that can be caused by many things, and even begin for no apparent reason. But it can have a major impact, bringing stress, anxiety, anger and sleep loss. The first step towards taking control of your tinnitus is to consult a professional, so that together, you can find the treatment plan that will work for you.
