Tinnitus - Ringing or Buzzing in the Ears

tinnitus ringing buzzing in ears ear pain headaches

Some people hear hissing, roaring, whistling, chirping or clicking rather than ringing.

Often referred to as "ringing in the ears," tinnitus is a medical term for the perception of sound in one or both ears when no external sound can be detected by others. Some people who suffer from tinnitus hear hissing, roaring, whistling, chirping, or clicking rather than ringing. Tinnitus can be intermittent or constant with single or multiple tones, and its perceived volume can range from subtle to intense.

In many cases the cause of tinnitus cannot be determined. There are many potential catalysts that are known to trigger or worsen tinnitus:

  • accumulation of earwax
  • exposure to loud sounds
  • head or neck injuries
  • problems with blood circulation
  • jaw misalignment
  • ear or sinus infections certain types of tumors
  • cardiovascular disease
  • certain medications

The majority of people who suffer from tinnitus also have hearing loss.

While there are no cures, there are solutions to help you manage tinnitus symptoms:

  • Tinnitus Retraining Therapy
  • Sound generators create a type of "white noise" sound that distracts your brain from the ringing or buzzing sounds, which can reduce their intensity.
  • Some specialized hearing instruments are designed with features that help to provide relief from tinnitus.
