Tinnitus can have many possible causes, such as exposure to loud music or sounds, unwanted side effects to medication, or earwax blockage. For other people, there are no obvious reasons.
How you react to the tinnitus can significantly influence your level of distress. Your brain can interpret the sound as a threat to your wellbeing, increasing the distress associated with tinnitus.
