Regardless of the fact that there are many available solutions for eliminating or minimizing tinnitus, this condition can still invariably lead to complications.  These can include:

  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Insomnia


This common emotional problem can be described as a feeling of agitation, nervousness or worry that something beyond your control is about to occur. This emotional worry can be the result of the continuous ringing of the ears that sufferers of tinnitus often experience.  Anxiety can exhibit itself in a number of symptoms. These can include:

  • Fatigue
  • Irritability
  • Tachycardia or fast heartbeat
  • Shortness of breath
  • Diarrhea
  • Tension
  • Nausea

A large number of medications can effectively relieve anxiety symptoms whilst you find ways to treat your tinnitus conditions.


Continuous experience of tinnitus can make the sufferer depressed. If you suffer from depression you probably may experience some bouts of:

  • Sadness or hopelessness
  • Concentration difficulties
  • Appetite changes
  • Sleeping difficulties
  • Reduced or lack of energy
  • Fatigue
  • Restlessness

You need to consult with your physician if you think you’re suffering from depression.


The incapability to fall asleep or to stay asleep well enough to be adequately rested are all characteristics of insomnia. Insomnia can cause:

  • Depression
  • Irritability
  • Stress
  • Anxiety

The non-stop ringing in your ears suffered by those with tinnitus, particularly the severe forms of tinnitus will only logically result in insomnia.  Many available treatments to address insomnia abound and you need to talk to your doctor to know the best treatment approach for you.

These complications and the tinnitus problem can all be addressed with a treatment plan that addresses the tinnitus problem if the aforementioned complications were indeed caused by tinnitus. Therefore, the main focus of your treatment should be for the resolution of your tinnitus symptoms. Reducing or even curing your tinnitus will definitely improve the quality of life dramatically.
