Tinnitus is not the disease but it is a condition that effects and irritates the brain with uncontrollable sounds like throbbing beats, irritating and maddening whines. As a result all these sounds affect our general hearing. Imagine if you are listening to your favorite song, or a talk show or news on your television over a continuous loud whistling back ground, this is what tinnitus is about.
Effect of Infection and Aging
Hearing is affected with aging and infection. The minimum hearing loss can lead to the sensitivity of some sound being lost. Consequently it allows the background tinnitus effect to become more audible.
