Tinnitus is the medical term for the perception of hearing a noise when there is none present. Tinnitus is usually subjective, which means only the person who has it can hear it. Those with tinnitus say their symptoms are most noticeable at night or when they are trying to sleep. An estimated 50 million Americans experience some degree of tinnitus in their lifetime.
It can range from mild to severe, constant or intermittent, soft or loud, or in one or both ears. The signs of tinnitus include hearing a buzzing, humming, ringing, high-pitched squealing, or whistling noise in the ears.
