Many people with tintinitus also suffer from lack of sleep and anxiety. When you go to bed and all is quiet, the ringing in your ears can sound louder, making it more difficult to get to sleep. Lack of sleep then makes you more tired, which increases your anxiety and stress. Lack of sleep encourages depression, negative thoughts and a resultant higher level of anxiety and tinnitus symptoms.
