“I hear a constant ringing.” “There is a buzzing in my head – sometimes louder, then quieter.” “I think I am going crazy with this ringing noise.”
This or a similar experience is what tinnitus patients report with regard to the disturbing ear noise.
Those affected notice sounds that don’t come from an outer source. Tinnitus can be perceived in one or both ears as an inner humming or whistling sound, hissing, swooshing, clicking or knocking. The noise can remain the same with regard to its intensity or it can pulse rhythmically.
The cause of the tinnitus condition is a disturbance of the hearing function. At the same time, the neural activity in various brain areas is changed. When ear noises appear, immediate treatment of the condition is recommended, since the longer tinnitus remains, the higher the probability of a permanent impairment.
