What causes tinnitus?
Tinnitus can occur in any of the four sections of the outer ear, middle ear, inner ear and the brain. Some tinnitus is considered to be normal. For instance, if you enter a sound proof room, the normal outside noise is no longer present. In this case, you will immediately become aware of head sounds in your ear. Under normal circumstance, we do not hear the head sounds because the noises from outside block them. Even ear wax or a foreign body in the external ear is responsible for blocking out background noises and making us more aware of the head sounds. Fluid, infection of disease of the middle ear bone or ear drum also can cause tinnitus.

Even though certain drugs seem to be a possible solution for relieving tinnitus they are not for everyone. If you suffer from some form of tinnitus and prefer not to take drugs there are other options available.
