What is Tinnitus and its Symptoms
Tinnitus is a medical term for ringing in the ears or buzzing in the ear that makes one uncomfortable. The sound can be really annoying as it keeps buzzing every now and then. The noise can come anytime or even in many cases it is continuously irritating the patient. In most cases only the patient can hear the voice, but many times even people sitting nearby can also hear the voices.
