Can tinnitus be caused by a stroke?

Tinnitus can be a symptom of a stroke, but it is not common. When a stroke occurs, blood flow to the brain is disrupted, which can result in various symptoms, including tinnitus. This happens when the stroke affects the part of the brain that processes sound. However, it is important to note that most people who experience tinnitus do not have an underlying medical condition.
