What is tinnitus?

Tinnitus is a buzzing or ringing in your ears that is a symptom of an underlying issues. This is a common hearing sensation but can become frustrating when experienced often.

Diagnosis of Tinnitus

Most tinnitus is caused by hearing loss. The tiny hair-like  receptors on the cochlea, the sound receptor of the ear, can become damaged over time as we age or from loud noise. Another cause of tinnitus is an outer, middle or inner ear problem. It can also be linked to blood vessel disorders.
