Tinnitus Treatment

Why do I have constant ringing in my ear?

Tinnitus is common.

Any way that you pronounce it, Tinnitus is a “noise” in your ears. Ringing, roaring, clicking, hissing, buzzing, and whining in your ears might not have a cause, but it is not your imagination.

Everyone's Tinnitus is different. Some are at lower levels, while others are higher pitched. At night, it is common for people to notice the Tinnitus more, due to the quietness. 

What exactly is Tinnitus?

Tinnitus is not disease-driven, more of a symptom or problem in the auditory system. Even though you hear the sound in your ears, the source comes from somewhere around the neural circuits of your brain.

Tinnitus Problems and Management

What Causes Tinnitus to Occur?

There are many conditions that can accompany or cause Tinnitus.

Side effects of medications
Sudden loud sounds
Repetitive noise exposure

Sometimes people develop Tinnitus for no reason. It does not usually signal a serious health problem, but loud Tinnitus can cause fatigue, inability to concentrate, and anxiety or depression.
