Tinnitus is the sensation of hearing sounds in your ear when no external sounds are present.

Noises can include hissing, buzzing, chirping, whistling, clicking, and ringing in the ears!

  • Aging
  • Exposure to loud noises
  • Hearing and heart conditions
  • Several medications

Who struggles with Tinnitus?

Currently in the United States, older adult males struggle with Tinnitus more than women. This disparity may exist because males typically spend more time in loud environments (manufacturing, construction, military service, motorsports and hunting).

Although males experience this condition far more than women, Tinnitus can affect anyone!

Is there a cure?
