Tinnitus: Is a poorly understood condition, sometimes with easily treatable causes, some other times difficult to treat if it involves damage to the inner ear. Start with your primary care doc who can further coordinate a thorough ENT evaluation as needed. Keep a log of your symptoms with circumstances possibly triggering them.
