Roughly 10% of the adults in the United States, over 20 million Americans, experience tinnitus for more than three months. An estimated 50 million Americans experience some degree of tinnitus in their lifetime.
Many people experience tinnitus as a ringing in their head or ears, but it can take a variety of forms. You might experience it as a buzzing, humming, or whistling sound. Its impact on your life can be serious. Anxiety, depression, and loss of sleep are all common side effects. Twenty percent of people that experience tinnitus also experience hyperacusis, which is abnormal sound sensitivity to the volume of sound. Misophonia, another form of sound sensitivity can also occur. Even though there is no known cure for tinnitus, tinnitus does not have to interfere with your enjoyment of life. Treatment options are available now, including for Tinnitus caused by Covid.
