1 What Is Tinnitus ? on Wed Jun 02, 2010 11:57 pm

Tinnitus is noise that originates within the ear rather than from the outside environment. This may affect one or both ears.

The sounds have been described variously as a "ringing" sound, a "buzzing" sound, a "humming noise, "like running water", a "whistling" sound or like the "sound from a seashell held close to the ear."

There are several common types of tinnitus:

•Tonal tinnitus is often called "ringing in the ears." This type of tinnitus produces a continuous sound, like a single note playing over and over.

•Pulsatile tinnitus, in which the tinnitus sounds are intermittent, continuous, or pulsating in time with the heartbeat.

•Tinnitus in which the sound is a ringing, buzzing, roaring, whistling, or hissing noise.

•Less common tinnitus, in which the sounds are described as beeping, Morse code type of signals, or even a musical notes.

•Less common still is tinnitus experienced as several different types of noises at the same time.

In a rare, unusual type of tinnitus, known as "objective tinnitus," the noise is heard not only by the affected individual but also by others.
