If you’re suffering from the buzzing or hissing sounds of tinnitus, you’re not alone – an estimated 1 in 5 people are suffering alongside you.
It’s More Than Just Your Ears
In addition to affecting your hearing and concentration, the constant ringing in the ears can also affect your life in other ways — depression, fatigue, stress, and anxiety are all common among tinnitus sufferers, as well as a statistically lower overall quality of life.
Tinnitus can have many causes, and it can be difficult to pinpoint which one is responsible for your tinnitus. Luckily, in many cases tinnitus can now be traced to underlying problems with the mouth and jaw— in these cases, chronic tinnitus symptoms can actually be completely and permanently resolved.
The Sounds of Tinnitus
- Tinnitus can manifest as any tone of hissing, buzzing, clicking, or ringing in the ears, from a low volume up to a level that makes it difficult to hear other sounds.
- In most cases this sound is not “real,” but rather a result of an underlying problem that makes your brain believe that it is receiving stimulus from the auditory nerve.
