    Hearing noise in the ear is known as tinnitus. Tinnitus is sound that originates from the body and it is not external sound. Affected people can complain of ringing, hissing, clicking or buzzing sounds. Many times the tinnitus is caused by hearing cells in the cochlea as a result of aging or an insult to the inner ear. Sometimes as the function of the hearing decline, sounds from the cochlea become more apparent. In some patient abnormal blood vessels in or around the ear can cause pulsatile tinnitus. Hyperdynamic circulation due to causes such as anemia can also cause tinnitus. Other causes of tinnitus include: -Fungal infections in the external ear -Foreign bodies in the external ear -Abnormal contraction of middle ear muscles -Vascular tumors of middle ear -Tumors involving the balance or hearing nerve.
