Tinnitus

Tinnitus is a condition characterized as ringing in the ear.

Complications for Tinnitus

Aside from the potential emotional and psychological effects, there are no physiologic complications of tinnitus. However, when tinnitus is severe, the results can be devastating. Its interference with sleep and concentration causes stress and interferes with work and relationships, often leading sufferers to a desperate feeling of loss of control over their lives. This puts a severe restriction on the tinnitus sufferer’s quality of life. In many cases, an individual’s work performance may be affected and could lead to the abnormal use of leave-time or sick days as well as motivation and productivity in the workplace.
