What Causes Tinnitus?

Although a precise cause is difficult to identify as it is a symptom rather than a disease, it is typically associated with hearing difficulties or the absence of an hearing aid. Recent research on the causes of tinnitus indicates that it occurs when auditory processing is no longer functioning properly due to overstimulation of the centre of the brain, resulting in hearing loss. However, it is difficult to measure hearing loss precisely.

The condition can be exacerbated by the following:

  • Ear infections
  • Excessive wax in the ears
  • Hearing loss caused by noise
  • Use of medications
  • Head trauma
  • Heart disease
  • Stress
  • Depression
  • Neck trauma
  • Anxiety
  • Acoustic neuroma
  • Misalignment of the jaw
