It is important to understand that though Tinnitus feels like the disease, it is merely a symptom.
Tinnitus is a symptom that something is dysfunctional in the auditory system. This system includes the ear, the auditory nerve that connects the inner ear to the brain, and the parts of the brain that process sound. Note that this problem may also cause other symptoms such as vertigo.
Tinnitus is often regarded as the first sign of hearing loss in elder people. It can also be a result of the side effects of past medications. Usually, prolonged exposure to loud sound causes tinnitus. This includes people working on construction sites, in traffic, in the army etc.
Tinnitus is not a serious health problem as a standalone. However, tinnitus over a period of time can cause other psychological problems such as anxiety, depression, fatigue, loss of focus and even some memory problems.
According to Ayurveda, the underlying cause of tinnitus is inner ear cell damage.
