FAQs about tinnitus diagnostic assessment.

Please read the below article to explain everything you need to know about Tinnitus and the solutions for it.

What is Tinnitus?

Tinnitus refers to the perception of sound when no external sound is present. It can manifest as a ringing, buzzing, humming, hissing, or even a pulsing sensation in the ears. While tinnitus is not a disease itself, it is often a symptom of an underlying condition, such as age-related hearing loss, exposure to loud noise, ear infections, or certain medications. Tinnitus can occur in one or both ears and may be constant or intermittent.

Symptoms of Tinnitus:

  1. Ringing or Buzzing Sounds: The most common symptom of tinnitus is the perception of persistent ringing or buzzing noises in the ears, which can range from mild to severe.
  2. Impact on Sleep: Tinnitus can disrupt sleep patterns, making it difficult to fall asleep or stay asleep. This can lead to fatigue, irritability, and difficulty concentrating during the day.
  3. Emotional Distress: Tinnitus can cause anxiety, depression, and stress, as individuals struggle with the constant presence of intrusive sounds.
  4. Concentration and Communication Difficulties: The presence of tinnitus can make it challenging to focus on tasks or engage in conversations, leading to frustration and decreased productivity.
