What is Tinnitus

Tinnitus is the feeling of ringing in the one or both ears. There is a continuous or an intermittent buzzing, whistling, chirping, or hissing sound.

The disturbance is felt more when the patient is trying to sleep or work in a quiet environment where background noise is low. If the condition is left unattended for a prolonged period, it can also lead to psychological problems.

Our inner ear helps in the maintenance of balance the body, acts as receptors of sounds and transmits signals to the brain. Disturbance in the conduction of sound from the inner ear or processing of the sound signal by the central nervous system may lead to tinnitus.
