Tinnitus is described as any sensation of sound in the absence of any external stimulation. It is often described as a ringing, buzzing or pulsing sensation in the ears.
Tinnitus is thought to be caused by damage to the outer, middle or inner ear or the hearing nerve in the brain. The damage to the hearing system can result from a number of different sources, such as; noise exposure, age-related changes in the inner ear, certain medications, head injuries, wax, etc. If you experience ongoing tinnitus contact our clinic to schedule an appointment for a complete audiological assessment.
