Is tinnitus a symptom of a very serious illness?

Answer: 

Although tinnitus can have a range of causes, the chance of it being a symptom of serious illness is extremely small.

The best thing to do is visit your GP, who will be able to give you advice and refer you to the ear, nose and throat (ENT) department of your hospital if necessary.
