No: Caffeine's influence on tinnitus is really one of worsening or lessening. It does not produce tinnitus when there is none. It also will not go away because caffeine is withdrawn.

Not necessarily: Certainly tinnitus can be exacerbated by caffeine, so it wouldn't hurt to cut back or stop caffeine. Many factors can cause tinnitus- medications, wax build up, middle ear fluid, sensory hearing loss, noise trauma, stress, anxiety, depression, tmj, and much more. It's worth seeing an otolaryngologist for full evaluation.

Possibly: Tinnitus caused by a specific cause should improve. One of the most common reversible causes is blood pressure medications.
