Do you have a ringing or buzzing in your ear? Do you hear a constant sound in your ear that sounds like someone is humming or even running the water? Tinnitus is a phantom noise that originates from within the ear rather than from the environment. The sound can be irritating to the individual affected with the condition. In some cases, tinnitus can cause dizziness or headaches. Pain in the ears and a feeling of fullness in the ears is also common.

There are several types of tinnitus including tonal tinnitus, pulsatile tinnitus and objective tinnitus.
Tonal tinnitus produces a continuous sound that often sounds like a "ringing in the ears." This is one of the most common types.
Pulsatile tinnitus sounds more like a pulsating heartbeat that can be intermittent or continuous.
Objective tinnitus is extremely rare and is when the sound is heard not only by the individual with tinnitus but also by others near the individual.

So what causes tinnitus? Damage caused to the hearing nerve in the inner ear is one of the most commons causes of tinnitus. Listening to loud noises such as music from an ipod, heavy machinery, and firearms can also cause tinnitus. Age can be another factor that plays a role in the onset of tinnitus symptoms.
There are a few ways to help prevent the symptoms of tinnitus. First is the most important one…always protect your ears. Wear protective hearing equipment when around loud noises. Even everyday household products such as radios, driers, lawnmowers and hairdryers can damage the ears. Its best to keep earplugs around to help protect your ears. Another important factor is never put anything in your ears. They can damage your ear and even worse build wax against your ear drum that could eventually lead to tinnitus.
Many professions and activities can put you at risk for getting tinnitus. People around loud industrial noise, such machinists, airport workers, military personnel & carpenters are all at risk. Activities such as listening to loud music, whether on an mp3 player, at a concert, or in a nightclub can also put you in the at-risk category.
