MediNewsDigest: Finally some stats about tinnitus
Main conclusions from this epidemiology type study mentionned in sciencedirect:
1) Non-hispanic white have a high prevalence
2) 14.3% of americans between 60 and 69 years of age have it
3) Causes from physical (firearms, loud music etc.) to mental ( generalized anxiety disorder)
However the absence of mention of other well know causes such as medications side effect, co-morbidity with other illnesses such as fibromyalgia is strange.
