How long does an episode of tinnitus usually last?

The duration of an episode of tinnitus can vary widely depending on the underlying cause, severity, and individual factors. In some cases, tinnitus may be temporary and go away on its own, while in other cases it may be persistent and last for years. Acute tinnitus, which is a sudden onset of symptoms, may last for a few days to several weeks. Chronic tinnitus, which is defined as symptoms lasting for more than three months, can persist for years. It’s important to seek medical attention if you experience tinnitus so that the underlying cause can be identified and appropriate treatment can be provided.
