Could headaches and tiredness be caused by my tinnitus?

      I have loud high pitched tinnitus. Since it started I get headaches in short bursts intermitently throughout the day. It also seems that tinnitus is a stressor and seems to be tiring. Also, I am tired all the time. I think that's because I might not be getting enough sleep. I am waking up after 6 hours of sleep. I used to be able to sleep 7 to 7 1/2 hrs.

      I would answer yes. My high pitched T for the first several months caused me migraines daily, I was fatigued, my muscles like jaw and neck hurt, I just felt crummy. The fatigue I believe is due to the stress from the T which just wears out your body.

      I agree with Erik, @zimmy I don't have to deal with headaches very often, no more so than before I had T. But I feel tired constantly, like you. I also think its just the constant stress and anxiety for me, more so than the sleep. However, I do find I can no longer get a solid straight seven hours; it's three hours asleep, then awake, then drift back to sleep for another couple hours, then awake, the back for another two hours. Not the same as sleeping straight through.

      If you have not already: you could try sleep aids, either natural or prescription. Quite a few people have posted about them on this board. Here is one thread, here in support. https://www.tinnitustalk.com/threads/sleep-strategies-for-tinnitus-related-sleep-problems.17/
