    Research Shows Tinnitus May Affect Brain Responses
    May 24, 2011 - Have you ever gone to the doctor, complaining of a loud ringing or buzzing sound that no one else seems to hear? It may be what's called tinnitus, and while it does not matter whether you pronounce it tinn-EYE-tus or TINN-eh-tus, it can be a distressing condition. This phantom noise affects an estimated 50 million Americans and 250 million people worldwide. There is no cure for it.

    White noise does wonders. I read somewhere that aspirin can cause it, too.

    Yep, aspirin and other NSAIDS. I have tinnitus and it is maddening at times. Vincent Van Gogh had tinnitus secondary to Meniere's disease. Many feel that cut off his ear in an effort to stop the ringing.
