Tinnitus Getting Worse?

Tinnitus getting worse can sometimes be directly linked to emotions. A bad breakup, or something emotional can trigger your tinnitus to get worse. An illness, injury or infection can also affect your tinnitus. If you can calm yourself down, like with soothing music or relaxing hot bath, your tinnitus may calm down and the ringing may be reduced.

Overall, tinnitus getting worse is sometimes part of getting older or exposure to excessive loud noise. Try to protect your ears and calm down your stress and you’ll probably feel better in the long run.

Sometimes soothing your stress and keeping out of loud noise isn’t enough. To stop your tinnitus getting worse, you need to identify your root cause.
