What is Tinnitus?

Tinnitus symptoms include hearing phantom noises such as ringing, buzzing, clicking, hissing, or, in extreme cases, roaring. There are two types of tinnitus. 

1) Subjective Tinnitus: This is the most common type of tinnitus and can only be heard by the patient. This type is generally caused by problems with the auditory nerves or the area of the brain that receives auditory signals.

However, for some people, it can have a significant impact on everyday life and be very distressing, affect concentration, and cause problems such as difficulty sleeping (insomnia) and depression.

Tinnitus can develop gradually over time or occur suddenly. It’s not clear exactly why it happens, but it often occurs along with some degree of hearing loss.

Temporary episodes of tinnitus may be brought on by a noisy workplace that uses power tools, drills, or other loud machinery. A person’s chances of developing the condition permanently increase the longer they spend in that noisy environment.
