This is the ICD-10-CM code for the ringing, roaring, hissing, or buzzing known as tinnitus, when it occurs in the right ear. The National Institutes of Health estimates about 10% of US adults have had at least 5 minutes of tinnitus in the past year. Famous Americans with tinnitus include a lot of musicians—from singer-songwriter Bob Dylan to crooner Liza Minnelli.
