Tinnitus and Hyperacusis
Tinnitus is the perception of sound heard in the ears or head that is not actually present in the environment. The sound associated with tinnitus varies from person to person, however, it is typically described as a ringing, buzzing, hissing or clicking. Tinnitus is often accompanied by oversensitivity to sound, which is clinically known as decreased sound tolerance or hyperacusis. Tinnitus is also strongly affected by your emotional state. Therefore, anxiety, stress, or depression can worsen your tinnitus.
