Many things can cause Tinnitus including exposure to loud noise and some medications. In many cases no obvious cause is found. Tinnitus is not a disease but a problem in the hearing pathway or in the central nervous system of the brain. In some cases it may become so severe that it can become difficult to hear, concentrate or even sleep. Recent research has shown some people suffer from anxiety and depression due to Tinnitus.
The appropriate treatment option depends on the severity of the Tinnitus and the way in which it affects the lifestyle of the individual. No medications have yet been proven to be effective in clinical trials at this stage.
