Tinnitus, which is the abnormal perception of sound, affects 50 million Americans. Most commonly it is associated with high frequency sensory neural hearing loss, or certain ear pathologies. High doses of certain medications such as aspirin and other anti-inflammatory medications, as well as certain diuretics can also cause tinnitus.
Unless a specific cause can be identified, the treatment of tinnitus is often difficult and unsatisfactory. Some helpful coping strategies can be found on the website of the American Tinnitus Association and the groups listed below.
