What is Tinnitus?

Tinnitus is not the easiest thing to treat. This is because it’s not always easy to pinpoint the cause. Consequently, treating Tinnitus effectively has often proved elusive.

Furthermore, it manifests in different ways for different people. Many people associate it with a ringing in their ears. However, it can also sound like hissing, clicking, or even a buzzing noise.

It occurs when you perceive sound, but in reality, there is no external sound present. It is often a symptom that there is a problem with your auditory circuit.

The extent of the problem can range from mild to severe. It can affect one, or sometimes both ears. And it may be just temporary or fairly persistent.

It can have a significant impact on your quality of life. It affects how well you hear. But it can also disrupt your work life and your sleep as well.
