Tinnitus is the perception of sound heard within the human ear, when there isn’t any outside noise that others can hear. Tinnitus can occur in one or both ears, constantly or intermittently, be perceived to come from inside or outside of the ear(s), be progressive, pulsing, or vary in intensity and pitch. Sounds may occur simultaneously, and are described as ringing, hissing, static, crickets, screeching, sirens, whooshing, roaring, pulsing, ocean waves, buzzing, clicking, dial tones and even music.
Most of the individuals that seek help suffer from constant tinnitus, or tinnitus that lasts 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
Withdrawal from benzodiazepines and in-ear earphones, whose sound enters directly into the ear canal without any opportunity to be deflected or absorbed elsewhere, are common causes of tinnitus. Feelings of pressure (aural fullness) or pain in or around the ears may accompany tinnitus. Individuals with more severe cases of tinnitus may find it difficult to hear, work, or sleep.
Although tinnitus does not cause hearing loss, it can interfere with the ability to communicate. For the most part, tinnitus usually goes away by itself without treatment, but it is permanent in about 25% of all cases.


Because tinnitus is usually a symptom of a problem, such as an illness, treating the initial cause should help get rid of, or at least lessen, the sounds. Whether or not this is necessary, will depend on how loud and persistent the sound is, how annoying it is to the person, and if it’s disturbing their daily life.
And last, but not least, if you suffer from tinnitus, you join some pretty high profile people throughout history known to have had it too.

This causes the middle ear mechanism (ossicles) to vibrate and send those waves on to the inner ear and brain.
The Canadian Tinnitus Association estimates that 360,000 Canadians have tinnitus, and approximately 150,000 find that it seriously impairs the quality of their life. It is a condition that can result from a wide range of underlying causes, such as neurological damage (like brain injury or multiple sclerosis), ear infections, oxidative stress, foreign objects in the ear, nasal allergies that prevent (or induce) fluid drain, wax build-up in the ear and exposure to intense percussive and loud sounds. Treatments include identifying and healing an underlying cause, or reducing or masking the noise to make the tinnitus less noticeable.


It is estimated that 40% of individuals who suffer from tinnitus experience hyperacusis, but it can occur without tinnitus. IF A PHOTO OR VIDEO IS YOUR MATERIAL, AND YOU DO NOT WISH IT TO BE ON THE SITE, PLEASE EMAIL US AND WE WILL REMOVE IT IMMEDIATELY.
Effects from medications, drugs or alcohol also play an important part in causing tinnitus.
It’s a chain reaction. The electrical impulses in the cochlea are transmitted through the cochlear nerve to the auditory portion of the brain. For example, some people may prefer to listen to the sounds of the great outdoors – bird calls, falling rain, or waterfalls.
From whitenoise, to pinknoise and brownnoise…depending on the severity of the ringing you are experiencing.
