A group of European scientists studied data on the health of 12,657 patients who complained of tinnitus. Experts have come to the conclusion that such a condition may be the beginning of the development of Parkinson's and Alzheimer's diseases.

Parkinson's disease is considered a progressive, irreversible condition of the brain, during the development of which the signals between the brain and the nervous system are weakened. Further, there are violations associated mainly with the musculoskeletal system. Tinnitus is called tinnitus by doctors, and it is considered as the main symptom of a subsequent neurodegenerative disorder. During the development of this disease, motor functions are suppressed and then weakened, the same applies to Alzheimer's disease. Specialists studied medical records of over 120 thousand patients with tinnitus, as well as 25 314 medical records of people from the control group.
Alzheimer's disease has developed over 10 years of observation in 398 people who were bothered by ringing in the ears. An additional 211 men and women with tinnitus developed Parkinson's disease. The researchers concluded that recurrent tinnitus should be perceived as the onset of a neurodegenerative disorder.
