Symptoms of Tinnitus
Tinnitus is the medical term for hearing sound in your ears when no external sound is present. Typically, sufferers describe the sounds as:
- Ringing in ears
What can cause Tinnitus?
Tinnitus can be triggered by a variety of causes, but is commonly linked to exposure to loud sounds, which can damage the delicate sensory cells of the inner ear. This condition has also been associated with ear infections, aging, stress, excessive earwax, high blood pressure and sensory nerve disorders. Activities such as smoking, drinking alcohol and caffeine and taking excessive amounts of aspirin or antibiotics may exacerbate tinnitus.
