what leads to tinnitus?

1 doctor answer
Dr. David Astrachan
36 years experience ENT and Head and Neck Surgery
Multiple things: Hearing loss, noise trauma, age, certain medications, jaw problems to name a few. The goal of all tinnitus treatment is to make the sound neutral. In other words to accept the sound and not get upset about it.
