Tinnitus is a term used to describe a persistent ringing, buzzing, hissing or roaring sound in either one or both of the ears. The condition is extremely common and can last for months or years for some individuals. Tinnitus is an annoyance for most but for many it can significantly interfere with sleep and even cause panic attacks or generalized anxiety from the constant noise.
Although most cases of tinnitus are not related to any serious cause, tinnitus should not be ignored. Unless the tinnitus is caused by medication, there is no permanent cure for tinnitus. However, therapies exist that can help people tolerate tinnitus and keep it from significantly disrupting their life.
