If you’ve ever heard a ringing, buzzing, or clicking sound in one or both ears, you might be one of the 20 million Americans who experience tinnitus. Often caused by an injury, medication, or a preexisting medical condition, tinnitus is the result of a problem in the way your ears and brain work together to process sound. Each person’s experience will be different, and the intensity and frequency of tinnitus can vary.
Although it’s not able to be completely cured, there are a variety of treatments to alleviate the effects of tinnitus. Many patients find relief with hearing aids or through medication or counseling. Ultimately, the most effective tool in managing tinnitus is finding out the cause.
