Ringing in the ears, known as tinnitus, is a symptom of auditory problems that tends to be more prevalent in people older than 40, says the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. While most often referred to as a ringing, it sometimes arises as a roaring or clicking sound.
Often it is the result of either hearing loss associated with age or of other problems within the auditory system; however, it can indicate more serious health problems, such as brain tumors and thyroid abnormalities, notes the National Institute on Deafness and Other Communication Disorders. For some it���s merely an annoyance, while others suffer from a constant ringing in the ears that causes loss of sleep and other health problems. If the symptoms persist for three months or more, it is recommended to consult a doctor, states WebMD.Learn more about Pain & Symptoms
