      It is very insightful article, that emphasizes pivotal role of the stress. This agrees so much with my personal experience how I did develop my tinnitus. Simply speaking, I had some temporary tinnitus period/onset (for 2 months) in my early 20s when I have been studying for the exams and I was very stressed and mentally exhausted. Then tinnitus went away after I had a summer holidays and I got lot of sleep and relax. Then in my early 30s it got back when I had moderate acoustic trauma (blasting my headphones at full volume accidentally for 2sec) while being under lot of stress because of a new born baby, my dad being sick, running my own business. Unfortunately this 2nd time it did not went away.
      I really start to believe that having more relaxed life and attitude would save me from tinnitus. But I had no luck in my life and it gave me lot of stressful moments and made me very nervous person.
