As an ear condition with many uncomfortable and bothersome symptoms, Tinnitus can be especially frustrating to deal with in your everyday life. While most cases of tinnitus can be treated, many adults may be unaware that it is the cause of the sounds they hear throughout the day. For this reason, tinnitus often goes undiagnosed if these sounds are not recognized as soon as possible. One of the most significant signs of tinnitus is hearing a variety of annoying noises consistently throughout the day. If you hear any of the following three irritating sounds in otherwise quiet environments, it is crucial to discuss your symptoms with your audiologist immediately so that your Tinnitus can be treated and your hearing can improve.
High-Pitched Ringing Sounds
A continuous, high-pitched ringing sound in your ears can be a sign of tinnitus. If you are hearing this bothersome high-pitched sound throughout the day, it is essential to contact your audiologist as soon as possible. A disturbance often causes this particular noise in your ear rather than something creating that sound in your surroundings.
Persistent Buzzing Noises
Much like the ringing sensation, a persistent buzzing sound may sound like a fly or a vibration near your ear. This noise can sometimes affect one or both ears, so it is essential to pay attention and notify your audiologist of your symptoms as soon as you can.
Hearing continuous clicks is also a potential sign of tinnitus. This sound may sound like persistent tapping or popping within your hearing. While this noise sometimes remains in the ear consistently, there may also be times when the sound only occurs occasionally for shorter periods. Similar to buzzing and ringing noises, this sign of Tinnitus could affect one or both of your ears at a time.
