Tinnitus is a very common problem affecting nearly 50 million Americans. It is often described as ringing, roaring, buzzing, crickets, music and even voices. Presently there is no cure for tinnitus. Thankfully for most people the unwanted sound is a nuisance and does not pose a significant problem. However for others, the ringing in the ears is problematic. It can interfere with daily work, interactions with others and normal daily life activities.
The causes can vary. Excessive exposure to loud noises is the most common cause. Concerts, volume too high when using headphones, workplace machinery, gun shots can all trigger a ringing sound in our ears, as well as lead to permanent hearing loss. The majority of people with tinnitus also experience some degree of hearing loss. Head and neck trauma, cardiovascular disease, jaw misalignment, medications, diabetes, under-active thyroid are also some of the common factors that cause ringing in the ears.
