Tinnitus /tinī´tǝs/ is the tinkling, ringing or hissing heard in one or both ears when no external sound is present. It is estimated that 50 million American adults are bothered by chronic head noise. Some people who suffer from tinnitus can pinpoint the exact moment the ringing in their ears began—perhaps following exposure to very loud noise—while others develop tinnitus gradually over time.
