A person diagnosed with Tinnitus feels a ringing sound in one or both ears, even though externally no sound has been produced. The type and intensity of sound varies from person to person and only the person concerned can hear it. While some may hear a constant hissing or buzzing others may hear a fairly loud intermittent sound, while for yet others, the sound may be constantly there. The person could also complain of pain in the ear at the same time and in more severe cases there could be dizziness, headaches and eventually, there could be hearing impairment as well.
Tinnitus is considered to be a symptom of an underlying medical condition such as a blood pressure, diabetes, brain tumour, head injuries etc., A person suffering from this condition can experience an increase in its intensity on taking medications for colds or flu, such as aspirin.
