Ringing in Your Ears Might Be a Sign of Hearing Loss

Linked to their work environments, many service members and veterans suffer from tinnitus, a symptom of hearing loss that causes people to hear a constant noise – typically described as a ringing or buzzing.

Tinnitus is usually connected to hearing loss but it can also affect your concentration, reaction time and short-term memory, and can be associated with anxiety, depression and sleep disorders.

More veterans make benefits claims for tinnitus and hearing loss at the Department of Veterans Affairs than any other disability or impairment, with more than 2.3 million veterans receiving compensation for tinnitus in 2020.
