Tinnitus (pronounced ti-ni-tis), or “ringing in the ears,” is the perception of a sound in one or both ears, without there being an external cause for that sound. Typically tinnitus symptoms are experienced as a ringing, buzzing, clicking, hissing, or roaring. The sounds heard with tinnitus can be intermittent or constant, and loud or soft.
