Contrary to popular belief, caffeine not linked to tinnitus

Tinnitus afflicts a significant amount of people in the USA, and sufferers have been frequently advised by doctors that if they reduce their consumption of caffeine, their symptoms will improve.

However, a study conducted at the Center for Hearing and Balance Studies in Bristol, UK, suggests that this may not be the case. 

In this placebo-controlled study, tinnitus sufferers who were also regular caffeine consumers showed no improvement when given placebos instead of caffeine. In fact, the study suggests that, among caffeine-addicted patients, caffeine withdrawal symptoms may make actually worsen their tinnitus.
