Tinnitus is hearing a sound in your ears or head when no external sound is present. It may be perceived as humming, ringing, buzzing, or hissing in one or both ears. “Ti-night-us” or “tin-uh-tus” is very common and affects roughly 20 million Americans. Populations at risk are servicemen, veterans, smokers, and people frequently exposed to loud sounds.
Causes of tinnitus include: fluid behind the eardrum, head and neck trauma, earwax buildup, hearing loss, and medications.
