Tinnitus is not a disease, but a symptom arising from a range of underlying causes.
Tinnitus can be caused by a variety of factors, some of them not under your control, such as simply aging. Tinnitus has also been associated with ear infections, earwax and sensory nerve disorders.
Most often, tinnitus is caused by repeated exposure to excessive loud noise.
TINNITUS TRIGGERS IN EVERYDAY LIFE
Some days your tinnitus may be worse than it is on other days.
That could be because you are tired, stressed, or your system is low on resistance due to other factors such as illness.
Smoking, drinking alcohol or coffee can also cause your tinnitus to flare up.
