No : Tinitus will having nothing to do with diet or sleeping habits. If you are otherwise doing well, neither of these conditions needs any real treatment. That is, they are incidental findings. If you are having headaches, incoordination, or neck stiffness you should see your doctor and probably a neurologic specialist.
