I was doing fine, but due to some vicious, relentless and evil colleagues in the office, I got very stressed again last month. They really pisssed me off. And by that period my tinnitus increased once more. This is another spike! Do you think it is a coincidence, or does stress really cause tinnitus? If it is the case, do you have any idea, which mechanism increases it? I hope some more cells in the cochlea have not died !
