WHAT IS TINNITUS?

Tinnitus is the internal sound you hear that does not come from an external source. The noise caused by tinnitus can be constant, or happen now and then. It may also be worse in times of silence. It may feel like it’s in the middle of your head or on one side. It also may pulse or stay constant.

Generally, tinnitus exists together with hearing loss and sometimes you may not even be aware that you have hearing loss. The amount of distress or annoyance you may experience from tinnitus varies from person to person. Some people can ignore it, but in certain cases, tinnitus affects life and work activities. It may also result in fatigue, stress, loss of concentration, insomnia or depression.
