Tinnitus is commonly defined as the perception of a sound in the absence of an external sound source. In essence, it’s hearing something that isn’t actually there, and is often described by patients as ringing in their ears. Because tinnitus may arise from so many conditions, ranging from hearing loss to high blood pressure to medications, diagnosing the cause or causes can be a challenge. For many people, the ringing begins for no obvious reason.
