      Tinnitus Since:
      Cause of Tinnitus:
      Medication - antidepressants
      Essentially, not only can stress perpetuate physical symptoms, it can also create them.

      On the other hand, as you state, stress can also manifest itself via physical symptoms at sites where there was organic, structural damage. So you could have a broken ankle, which heals in a few weeks as it should, but then be left with pain that is induced by stress. Strange as it sounds, doctors of mind-body medicine believe the brain is so advanced that it can select areas of the body for physical manifestation of stress that are either symbolic or that make it harder to recognise that the symptom is, in fact, psychosomatic (psychophysiologic). I was having problems with noise when working in the house leading up to the pandemic and my tinnitus appeared around the start of lockdown. I suppose that areas of the body that have recently/already suffered trauma would be obvious places for the stress to come out.

      We can also experience these symptoms when we feel trapped in some way. It's as if we cannot fight or flee from from the stress, so it turns itself inwards but expresses itself through the body.

      You certainly appear to have suffered a good deal of stress over the last few years. I wonder if you did any work on yourself following your father's death.

      And speaking of sleep, anxiety and insomnia, how is your jaw? Ever have any pain? Do you clench or grind your teeth at night?
