What is Tinnitus? An Explanation of A Common Condition in Older Adults
Tinnitus is a common condition in which a patient experiences ringing or other noises in one or both ears. Known symptoms of tinnitus include ringing, buzzing, roaring, clicking, hissing, or humming in either or each ear.
Others usually do not hear the noises resulting from tinnitus, as they are not caused by anything external. Tinnitus affects about 15 to 20 percent of people. In older adults, the condition manifests regularly. Often, age-related hearing loss, an ear injury, or a circulatory system issue produces tinnitus.

High-Pitched and Low-pitched Ringing Symptoms of Tinnitus
High-pitched ringing is the most common tinnitus sound. Possible causes include medication side effects, hearing loss, or loud noise exposure. Low-pitched ringing points to blockages in one or both ear canals, to Meniere’s disease, or to otosclerosis.
