      Cause of Tinnitus:
      Hello, I am 20 and I got my tinnitus last year around June. Since last week it has gotten much worse. I hear it in the day too, and at night its unbearable.

      I have also gained some weight since last 2 years, can that be the reason for my tinnitus?

      I have read online that weight can also be a factor for tinnitus. Although I am not over weight, I have gained at least 20 pounds since 2 years.

      Do you think my tinnitus can go away if I lose weight?

      It's hard to say, but consider this: aerobics are known for their anti-stress properties in short and long term. It can help with the obsession/anxiety triggered by tinnitus, which reduces tinnitus itself.

      If there is also this weight relationship and aerobics don't do any harm on tinnitus, it's a win-win.

      Losing weight can reduce inflammation, which may also help calm your tinnitus. As long as you lose weight sensibly, it can only help with all sorts of health problems, so you have nothing to lose.

      It won't cure your tinnitus. But exercise promotes production of oxytocin, the happiness hormone. Which won't necessarily make you happy but can improve your mood. Improving your mood can help you cope better and distract you from tinnitus. The more you are distracted the more you help habituate.

      Try Yoga or any diet for 3 months and see the result. Nobody can tell you the outcome.

      When I first got tinnitus I lost about 20 lbs, to me it's not a way to lose weight.

      Later on yes nice to have lost weight but did nothing to help my tinnitus.
