Emotional stress has been linked to the onset of tinnitus, however, it is not clear whether stress can cause the onset of tinnitus or is a contributing factor. Nevertheless, it is common for tinnitus to begin during times of high emotional stress. Reducing your stress may relieve the tinnitus, but it is impossible to predict how long it will last. Herbs will neither relieve nor cure tinnitus.
