Tinnitus can be described as “ringing” ears and other head noises that are perceived in the absence of any external source of sound or noise. It is projected that 1 out of every 5 people likely to experience some degree of tinnitus. The condition can be temporary experience that disappears by itself or becomes permanent discomfort that you have to deal all your life.

Many sufferers might also have experienced tinnitus sound like high-pitched background noise similar to the sound generated by some computer monitors or television sets. Other tinnitus experiences are chirping crickets, bells, roaring or rushing noise in head. This tinnitus type is classified as objective tinnitus where a sufferer may experience a rhythmic rushing noise caused but their own pulse commonly known as pulsatile tinnitus.

The sound of tinnitus in this form is audible using a stethoscope. The sufferer can also hear the rushing noise in head from other causes such as TMJ, or malformation of the arteries or veins located in the head or neck which may require surgery to solve the problem.
