      So stressing over tinnitus itself seems to spike my tinnitus. And one time I was close to a panic attack and got a new tinnitus tone that took a few hours to go away.

      But other than that, it doesn't seem to have much impact - in fact, being stressed about something else usually makes me pay less attention to tinnitus.

      At my new apartment though, I've been having a lot of issues with noise (neighbors, construction, other buildings) - I've become very noise sensitive - and this is what seems to have brought on a new tone or two that fluctuates a lot. Anyone have thoughts on this?

      @nay, I'd imagine this could have an effect on your tinnitus. Is there anything you can do to help yourself with the external noise? And how did the original tinnitus come about?
