"Tinnitus is the perception of ringing or buzzing in one or both ears. It can be constant, or it can come and go and is often associated with hearing loss. Tinnitus affects about 15-20 percent of people. Although it is not a condition itself, it is generally a symptom of an underlying ailment, such as age-related hearing loss, ear injury, or a circulatory system disorder.
Although troublesome, tinnitus usually isn"t a sign of something serious and can be triggered by a number of causes. It varies from person to person. Common causes include hearing loss, wax buildup, stress, exposure to loud noises, certain disorders, and certain medications.
People suffering from acute tinnitus may struggle to sleep, focus at work, or communicate with others. In these cases, treatment plays a crucial part in helping these individuals regain control of their lives."
