somatic tinnitus
   Also referred to as somatosounds. Both terms are used to designate a type of * tinnitus (i.e. 'ringing in the ears') attributed to a peripheral process outside the ear, such as vascular, muscular, or respiratory processes within the head or neck, or to the temporomandibular joint. The term somatic tinnitus is used in opposition to the terms *otic tinnitus and * central tinnitus.
