Symptom Checker

Step 4: Read and complete the decision guide to learn more about your symptoms.


Okay. Thanks for using this guide! We hope it was helpful and that your tinnitus improves soon.

If none of the conditions mentioned seem to apply to you, it's possible that your tinnitus is due to a rare cause, has unusual features, or is simply not covered in this guide. For example, pregnancy, atherosclerosis (hardening of the arteries), and anemia are occasionally associated with tinnitus; however, most people with these conditions do not have tinnitus. A rare cause of tinnitus is a benign brain tumor, called an acoustic neuroma.

In addition, many people with tinnitus have no identifiable cause.

It's important to have this symptom evaluated. Whether a cause can be identified or not, treatment may be available to improve your symptoms.
