Tinnitus and why it's important to understand

Tinnitus is the perception of sound when no actual external noise is present. While it is commonly referred to as “ringing in the ears,” tinnitus can manifest many different perceptions of sound, including buzzing, hissing, whistling, swooshing, and clicking. In some rare cases, tinnitus patients report hearing music. Tinnitus can be both an acute (temporary) condition or a chronic (ongoing) problem. If you are curious about possible tinnitus issues, do not hesitate to schedule an appointment. As with any other medical issues, ignoring is never a good solution.
