Breaking the cycle of distress
The way you think about tinnitus can influence your experience of it. If your brain interprets the sound of tinnitus as something harmful to your wellbeing, or if you respond to tinnitus as a threat, you may become stressed and anxious.
In turn, this can make your tinnitus seem even more annoying. It’s a perfectly normal human reaction.
People who suffer from tinnitus often find that their symptoms initiate a cycle that keeps repeating itself.
By understanding this cycle we can intervene to stop the negative effects.
