Tinnitus occurs when our brain perceives a sound that isn't due to any external sounds arriving at the ear. Often people describe a hissing or ringing noise which seems like it's in one ear, both ears or in the head. Often, but not always, there is a degree of hearing loss.
The severity of tinnitus varies hugely from a minor nuisance to a major impact on life quality. Tinnitus of recent onset may settle considerably with time or disappear altogether. Various coping strategies can help, but there are no medical quick fixes (beware claims of magic cures on the Internet).
If you have tinnitus you should see an ENT specialist to assess the ears and hearing.
