People with ‘tinnitus’ experience sound that is not present in the environment, but which is heard in one or both ears or ‘inside the head’.
Tinnitus can range from being mildly annoying to highly distressing. Tinnitus often occurs in conjunction with hearing loss but can occur with normal hearing. Check out our video and information on tinnitus.
