First Tinnitus Sound - Buzzing

A very common tinnitus sound is the buzzing in the ear.

This one is usually reported by tinnitus sufferers as the "come and go". Basically there are two tinnitus sounds that "come and go" which are the buzzing and the ringing. What happens is they aren't 24 hours they just...well they come and go.

It's usually very annoying and it can actually disrupt your focus when at work or when you are trying to sleep. It's actually been reported that this is the 2nd most common type of tinnitus sound.

Second Tinnitus Sound - Ringing Sound

Do you know the bell of the church? This tinnitus sound resembles it. Like I mentioned before this type of sound can be the "come and go" just like the buzzing, however, it can also be permanent. That's right 24 hours hearing the ringing I know how it is because on a little side note this is actually the type of tinnitus sound that I suffered from.

Also keep in mind that this one can affect one or both ears it will depend on exactly how severe your particular case of tinnitus is.

The severity will depend on the cause of your tinnitus.

This tinnitus sound basically sound like a roar usually associated with bad blood circulation. This type of tinnitus as many different causes and even though it's the most rare it's also the one most dificult to treat because there are so many causes of it.
