Tinnitus Evaluation

Tinnitus is the experience of frequent, bothersome sounds inside one ear, both ears or more central in the head. While loved ones and doctors cannot hear these sounds (described as ringing, buzzing, whooshing, or chirping), for individuals with Tinnitus, the sounds are very real and can be a threat to their well-being. If you have this condition, know you are not alone: Tinnitus affects around 44 million Americans, and is the most common injury for our armed service men and women.

Unfortunately, Tinnitus can be difficult to understand because its cause can be as elusive as its cure. It is not a disease, but instead a symptom that something may be wrong in the ear, the auditory nerve, and/or the part of the brain that processes sound. It can affect those with and without hearing loss, and there is often no specific reason for tinnitus.

While the experience of tinnitus can vary widely, the effect upon sufferers is often similar: difficult and tiresome.
