Tinnitus is More Common than People Think
Research shows that 15-20% of the general population have experienced tinnitus. It is even the 1st reported symptom by Veterans, behind hearing loss and post-traumatic stress. It is also often a symptom of hearing loss. In fact, evidence shows that 80% of tinnitus patients have some hearing loss, and more than 70% of patients with hearing loss also have tinnitus. Tinnitus also typically increases as the hearing loss worsens.
