Tinnitus is the perception of an insistent, unpleasant ringing, buzzing or other consistent noise, located in or near the skull but without a definable external source. It is not considered to be a condition in its own right, but a syndrome or symptom related to many forms of auditory damage or disorder. This health complaint is estimated to affect 15% of all adults. Tinnitus may have a significant negative impact on the life quality of those affected by it.
Tinnitus is often perceived as a ringing or persistent high tone very close to or within the ear. These noises may negatively affect the attention of the patient. Other patients may describe it as a buzzing, hissing or otherwise high-pitched and/or pervasive noise. Tinnitus may be unilateral (i.e. heard in either the left or right ear) or bilateral (heard in both ears). This syndrome may also have deleterious effects on the emotional, psychological and functional status of the patient. These effects have been directly correlated to tinnitus symptoms.
