What is tinnitus?

Tinnitus, in many cases, is a warning that the ear has been negatively impacted.  Loud sounds, in particular.

But, what about the cases where tinnitus continue, and there’s no hearing damage?   Clearly, something is wrong with this tinnitus warning system idea.

I believe that tinnitus is more alike a tension.   When loud sounds are heard, the ear-mind hearing mechanism tenses up and produces the high pitched warning.  This is normal.   What happens in tinnitus is that the hearing tension is not rapidly released.   That is, once tensed, the ear-mind hearing remains (in cases of tinnitus).

The tension can be alleviated by all kinds of tension-release mechanisms for hearing.
