      Stress increases cortisol, tinnitus causes stress. Tinnitus increases cortisol.

      This is what that study was trying to achieve.

      Any lawyer in court would completely obliterate a definitive link between cortisol levels and the presence of tinnitus.

      Sometimes when I ready our posts I struggle to understand what your point is. This is one of them.

      Why would the issue of there being a link between tinnitus and stress hormones wind up in court in the first place and why would "lawyers" want to deny it?

      Who said it's their fault? Listen, I have had the most dark ideas when my new sounds appeared 4 years ago right after a burnout, and even if it's much better today, it still is hard for me to cope with on some days when I have a lot of stress from work. I have several T tones, so I call myself a severe sufferer as one of my T tones is quite loud as I can hear it in loud environments, but I more and more start to understand where it came from through self experiment and reading this forum. I'd also like to see a magic solution one day, but in the meanwhile I'm trying to enjoy life the best I can and that starts by managing my stress and anxiety. And while doing that I actually managed to lower some tones and I got rid of a severe low humming tone, so it's not just coping with it, lowering your stress levels could eventually help you to lower or get rid of your T's (if your T comes from stress that is of course). Peace

      Even if the study is incomplete as it doesn't say what came first stress or T, it's still interesting to me and maybe other people. Reading this forum I find that there is quite a lot of research going on, so I don't understand some of the reactions here, and T isn't the only disease they are working on.

      For what it’s worth, I have high cortisol levels and it has affected my sleep and muscle tone for years
