Is Tinnitus Driving You Crazy?

ESTIMATE 3-MINUTE READ

Tinnitus is the percep­tion of sound when no actual external noise is present.

Tinnitus Definition

Tinnitus is often described as a ringing in the ears. It also can sound like roaring, clicking, hissing, or buzzing. There is currently no scientifically-validated cure for most types of tinnitus. It is not an ailment in itself. Rather, it is sympto­matic of an underlying cause. It differs from a similar condition called hyperacusis. The latter is an acute sensitivity to certain frequencies of external sound, whereas tinnitus is the perception of sound within your auditory canal.
