Central auditory: Over last 15 years research into the patho-physiology of tinnitus has clearly shown that the origin of tinnitus (perception of ringing in the ear) is the result of increased synchronous discharge of electrical activity in the auditory nervous system in the brain. The sound is not coming from the ear but is like a phantom limb syndrome where increased brain activity is perceived as noise in ear.

Tinnitus: Tinnitus is noise or ringing in the ears. There is no drug for cure. Tinnitus is not a disease, but a condition that can result from many underlying causes. Rec.: see ENT to rule out secondary pathology.
