The most common sounds of tinnitus are; hissing, ringing, knocking, whooshing, clicking, whistling, ticking, etc., and these are the symptoms of tinnitus. But tinnitus is itself a symptom of other conditions that cause the tinnitus. How would you describe your sounds?

Sounds of tinnitus fall into 2 categories; those that only the sufferer hears, and, those that a healthcare professional can hear as well (with a special instrument). The first is known as subjective tinnitus and the second objective tinnitus. Subjective tinnitus is more common and is what is covered here.
Typical causes of tinnitus are; inner ear / auditory nerve damage, noise-damaged hearing, head trauma, whiplash, meniere’s disease, otosclerosis, blocked eustachian tube, allergies, even stress. Some drug medications taken for other conditions can also cause tinnitus. There may be a tie-up between the type of sounds of tinnitus you hear and the underlying cause(s).
There are several mainstream treatments available to help combat the sounds of tinnitus, such as; treatment with drugs (e.g. antidepressants, antihistamines, anticonvulsants, cardiovascular), complimentary treatments (e.g. yoga, meditation, acupuncture, hypnosis), tinnitus maskers, hearing aids, and very rarely surgery.
However, no proven medical cure for tinnitus has yet been discovered, which is why around 93% of tinnitus sufferers never find total relief from their symptoms, i.e. the sounds of tinnitus.
