Tinnitus is a chronic hearing-related condition that most people have temporarily experienced before in some form. Excessively loud noises often lead to a ringing, buzzing, or humming sensation in your ear. This is common when people are too close to gunshots, explosions, loud machinery, very loud music, or spend an extended period of time hearing noises at higher than normal volumes. But for many, tinnitus is not temporary and they experience this condition to some degree in their daily lives.
Roughly 25 to 50 million American adults live with permanent tinnitus, ranging from cases that are a mildly annoying buzz at times to cases where patients experience a constant problem that can cause anxiety, communication problems, depression, and other serious health risks.
