Tinnitus is a condition associated with ringing in the ears or hearing other kinds of noise, including buzzing and hissing. These noises are not caused by external sound sources but come from inside you due to several underlying health conditions.
Tinnitus may be due to simple reasons such as old age and taking a medication that induces tinnitus. Or more severe health problems, including ear trauma, high blood pressure, Meniere’s disease, or temporomandibular joint disorders.
This condition is a fairly common one, occurring mostly in older adults. Tinnitus can either be subjective – that is, you’re the only one that can hear it – or objective – you and other people can hear it.
