It can also be caused by problems with auditory nerves (hearing aids) or a part of the brain that interprets the nerve signals that sound (auditory pathways).

Common Causes of Tinnitus

In many people, tinnitus is caused by one of these conditions:

Age-related hearing loss: For many people, hearing deteriorates with age, usually begins around the age of 60. Hearing loss can cause tinnitus. The medical term for this type of hearing loss is presbycusis.

Exposure to loud noises: Loud noises, such as heavy machinery, chain saws and guns are common sources of noise-related hearing loss. Portable music devices such as MP3 or iPod, can also cause hearing loss related to noise where he played hard for long periods of time. Tinnitus caused by exposure in the short term, such as attending a loud concert, usually disappears; prolonged exposure to loud noise can cause permanent damage.

Obstruction of the ear wax: Wax protects your ear canal capture dirt and retarding the growth of bacteria. When Earwax accumulates too, becomes too much washing, causing the hearing loss, or irritation in the eardrum, which can lead to tinnitus.

Ear bone changes: Rigidity of the bones in the middle ear (Otosclerosis) may affect hearing and tinnitus. The condition, caused by abnormal bone growth, tend to run in families.
