What is Tinnitus?
Causes of Tinnitus

Does all tinnitus sound the same?
So the answer is no, tinnitus does not sound the same to everyone.
Can other people hear my tinnitus?
Subjective tinnitus is the perception of sound in the absence of an acoustic stimulus and is heard only by the patient. Most tinnitus is subjective.
Objective tinnitus is uncommon and results from noise generated by structures near the ear. Sometimes the tinnitus is loud enough to be heard by other people.
What are researchers doing to better understand tinnitus?
The National Institute on Deafness and Other Communication Disorders (NIDCD) sponsors workshops that bring together tinnitus researchers to talk about the condition and develop fresh ideas for potential cures. During the course of the workshop, participants discuss a number of promising research directions.
We do not take a one-size-fits-all approach to treat tinnitus. A complicated problem requires a comprehensive approach to a solution. Tinnitus does not have a cure yet, but treatments that help many people cope better with the condition are available. Most doctors will offer a combination of the treatments depending on the severity of your tinnitus and the areas of your life it affects the most.
