Tinnitus is considered a symptom of many medical conditions, making its diagnosis and treatment challenging to health care providers (Drugs Aging. 2004;21(5):297; J Clin Neurol. 2009 Mar;5(1):11; Am Fam Physician. 2004 Jan 1;69(1):120; Rehabil Psychol. 2008;53(2):128; Cleve Clin J Med. 2011;78(5):31).
