Symptoms of tinnitus
Tinnitus (pronounced tin-ni-tus) affects about 15-20% of people and is commonly caused by hearing loss or an ear injury. Often, tinnitus is experienced as a ringing in the ears that only you can hear, but it can be hissing, buzzing, whistling or roaring.
People with tinnitus can also experience hearing loss. If you suffer from hearing loss and tinnitus, then modern hearing aids can help you alleviate both illnesses.
