Tinnitus is a common affliction that affects as many as 50 million Americans. The condition presents as an internal noise within your ear or head with no external source. It is usually a ringing sound, but tinnitus can also present as a buzzing or whooshing. Keep your stress levels low as studies suggest that stress can make this problem more prominent. Find your joy by doing some mindful meditation, going for a walk, or listening to your favorite sounds.
