What is tinnitus?

Tinnitus is the sensation of sound, often described as ringing, buzzing, hissing, or roaring. It can be heard in your ears or in your head and can be intermittent or constant. Many people can tune it out, however others need support in coping as it can cause great distress and affect people in areas such as sleep, concentration, and enjoyment of daily activities. Tinnitus is not curable, but can be managed through treatment.
