(ringing or roaring in the ears)
Many individuals suffer from tinnitus (ringing or roaring in the ears). Typical causes of tinnitus are hearing impairment, diseases of the ear, accumulation of ear wax, noise exposure, stress or fatigue, high blood pressure, or excessive use of certain drugs (e.g. aspirin).
Eliminating the underlying cause may relieve tinnitus. Often times, these individuals also suffer from hearing loss. Hearing aids have proven to be effective for these patients in reducing these noises.
