5 Psychological Factors Related To Tinnitus2020-04-08
Tinnitus is not necessarily caused by an organic disease, it is also closely related to our usual emotional state. Maybe you've also experienced that tinnitus appears quietly when you're stressed or don't have a good rest. But it is not to say that tinnitus will definitely occur under stress or poor sleep. It is more appropriate to say that the psychological state may be a predisposing factor for tinnitus. Today we mainly talk about Five psychological factors related to tinnitus.
One Fatigue: When I was in the clinic, many tinnitus patients said that when they were tired (including physical and mental fatigue, such as busy work, heavy learning tasks, etc.), tinnitus would appear or worsen.
Two Pleasant: Some studies have shown that about 42% of tinnitus patients feel less tinnitus when they are in a good mood, 55.5% have no change, and 2.5% feel worse.
Three Sadness and depression: The concepts and meanings of sadness and depression are different, but they all have the characteristics of low mood, depression, and depression. Studies have shown that 30% of tinnitus patients have increased tinnitus when sad, 67% have no change, and 3% have reduced. In the depressed state, 57% of the patients worsened, 42% had no change, and 1% reduced. It is easy to see from the above data that unhealthy emotions or mental states such as sadness and depression are not conducive to the relief of tinnitus.
Four Anger and anger: Both anger and anger are negative emotional reactions. Studies have shown that in strong emotional states such as anger and anger, 40% of patients feel increased tinnitus, 51% have no change, and 9% feel less.
Five Tension and state of tension: Tension refers to emotional tension or mental tension, which is what we usually call tension. The stress state refers to the stress response produced by the body when it is suddenly and strongly stimulated. When people are in a state of tension, they may feel nervous; when they are emotionally tense, they may also cause a state of tension. Approximately 67% of tinnitus patients may have increased tinnitus due to stress, and about 33% have no change. Only a few patients feel that their tinnitus has been reduced.
In conclusion, we can initially know that among the various psychological factors affecting tinnitus, good mood and mental state can alleviate tinnitus, while bad mood and mental state may aggravate tinnitus. In the process of Tinnitus Diagnosis and treatment, doctors should pay more attention to the psychological state of patients while treating tinnitus symptoms! As an otolaryngologist, we not only pay attention to the patient's disease status, sometimes we have to play the role of a psychologist, actively and moderately guide the patient, improve the patient's adverse emotional reaction, make the patient in a relatively good psychological state, and reduce the impact of psychological factors on the tinnitus symptoms of the patient as much as possible. Here, I hope that all tinnitus patients can correctly understand tinnitus, and then actively adjust their mentality and mood and cooperate with the doctor's treatment, so that they can get rid of tinnitus as soon as possible!
