What Is Tinnitus

An Early Indicator Of Hearing Loss

Many Canadians experience troublesome tinnitus – in fact this has been estimated to impact 10% of the adult population. Tinnitus experiences can include hissing, sizzling and ringing, but can also be experienced as grinding or machine like sounds. In some cases the sound can be a pulsation, at times in time with the pulse. The sound can be just in one ear, or in both.

For many people these sounds are just a background experience, and not bothersome, but for some, tinnitus can become very burdensome indeed. In such cases there can be problems with sleep, and with concentration, and in such instances therapy and support is urgently indicated.

In some cases there is an obvious cause for the tinnitus, such as a noise induced hearing loss, medication, or ear disease. In other cases however there is no obvious cause, or clear reason. If a person is concerned about the cause of their tinnitus, then a consultation with an Ear, Nose and Throat Specialist is advisable.
