The only symptoms of tinnitus involve sounds being heard by the patient, but not by anybody else. If you notice yourself constantly asking others if they hear something without anybody picking up on the same sound, you might be suffering from tinnitus. Here are some common ways the internal, phantom sounds can manifest themselves:
- Noise exposure
- Head trauma
- Disease or virus
