Tinnitus, or ringing in the ears, is a condition that affects an estimated 50 million Americans. While tinnitus has no cure at the moment, there are treatments available to help manage the condition.
1Tinnitus can be caused by several things, including;
Age-related hearing loss
Age-related hearing loss is the most common type of hearing loss, and it occurs when the inner ear loses its ability to collect and transmit sound signals to the brain. This can cause tinnitus, which is a ringing, buzzing, or roaring sound that you hear in your ears. Tinnitus can be mild or severe, and it can vary from person to person. Some people with age-related hearing loss only experience tinnitus occasionally, while others have it constantly.
