You might have tinnitus Tinnitus is not a disease, but a symptom that can result from a wide range of underlying causes abnormally loud sounds in the ear canal for even the briefest period ear infections, foreign objects in the ear, nose allergies that prevent or induce fluid drain, or wax build-up. Tinnitus is not a disease, but a symptom that can result from a wide range of underlying causes: abnormally loud sounds in the ear canal for even the briefest period (but usually with some duration), ear infections, foreign objects in the ear, nose allergies that prevent (or induce) fluid drain, or wax build-up. Withdrawal from a benzodiazepine addiction may cause tinnitus as well. In-ear headphones, whose sound enters directly into the ear canal, without any opportunity to be deflected or absorbed elsewhere, are a popular cause of tinnitus when volume is set beyond modest or moderate levels.Tinnitus can also be caused by natural hearing impairment like aging , as a side effect of some medications, and as a side effect of genetic hearing loss. the most common cause is noise-induced hearing loss.
