Tinnitus is the perceived sensation of sound in the absence of auditory stimulation. As many as 35-45% of the adult population and 90% of persons with hearing loss experience tinnitus at least once in awhile, but only 1% of the population suffers from a chronic tinnitus that may be problematic. The majority of individuals who suffer from tinnitus are between 40 and 80 years of age with prevalence increasing with age. It affects women and men equally. Eighty to ninety percent of tinnitus sufferers have a coexistent hearing loss
Tinnitus is a symptom, not a disease, the cause of which is generally not known. There are, however, different ways to classify tinnitus, an important one being "objective" (experienced by the person and the examiner) versus "subjective" (experienced by the person alone).
Treatments and goals must be individualized for each person depending on their particular circumstances. The primary step is to treat any reversible underlying causes thereby eradicating the tinnitus. If this is not possible, then the goal is to minimize the discomfort and disability caused by the tinnitus and to develop coping strategies for the individual.
Relief of tinnitus may be obtained from medication, lifestyle and complementary interventions, and possibly surgery if needed to correct an underlying problem.
