Usually a sign of hearing loss, this can range from the normal process of aging or trauma to any part of the ear, including cochlea. It is generally understood that when the cochlea stops sending signals to the brain, the brain might generate its own noise to compensate for the absence of normal sound signals.
Most conditions with Tinnitus occurs due to:
-Damage to the hearing nerves in the inner ear, which are the nerves responsible for acute hearing
-Exposure to excessively loud noises from clubs and concerts or from portable music devices, which can cause temporary or permanent tinnitus. This is considered the leading cause of tinnitus in young people and can often lead to hearing damage
-Other medical conditions, including meniere’s disease, circulatory disorders, cancer, diabetes, overactive thyroid, head and neck injury, and allergy
-Underlying conditions, including middle ear infections, perforation of the eardrum, or middle ear fluid build-up
