Ringing or Hissing in Your Ears

The perception of sound in the head, without an external source, is caused by a condition known as Tinnitus. Tinnitus is not a disease, but a symptom of an underlying condition. It is important to understand that it is very common and can be managed. While most people resolve to simply live with Tinnitus, many have come to realize their healthcare providers can help them with treatments such as masking devices, muscle relaxants, nutritional supplements, seizure medications, biofeedback and acupuncture.
