      It's actually Latin not Greek:

      noun: tinnitus
      1. ringing or buzzing in the ears.
      mid 19th century: from Latin, from tinnire ‘to ring, tinkle,’ of imitative origin.

      Hi peter, sorry for your demotivated status. I know, we all know, what is dealing with this condition. However it's something that can be handled with psychological help. Did you attend any course for relaxation and / or meditation? Or even a cognitive/behavioral psychotherapy? They give you great help to accept the presence of T.

      Tinnitus Since:
      Cause of Tinnitus:
      Hi Guys , Mine may have started from an infection that I got while windsurfing . The specialist syringed my ears ,which made them worse . I have tried everything over the years ,including acupuncture and spiritual ,and even moved to the alps in Italy as I was told high altitude is good . At least I can sleep at night . I can honestly say that my T has ruined my life in every sense . I read that Beethoven !art words before he died ,were , ah at least my tinnitus is coming with me !! I sometimes worry that when I die ,my tinnitus may come with me . everlasting peace. Not
