What is tinnitus?
Tinnitus is the name for the perception of sounds, such as ringing in your ears, buzzing, or hissing that are not present in the environment. Although the tinnitus sounds can be perceived as quite loud, objective measurements show that they are often fainter than the sound of a leaf falling to the ground.
