Caffeine, alcohol and uppers like cocaine all raise your blood pressure, increasing blood flow through the body, including your ears, which can make tinnitus worse. If you’re struggling with tinnitus, you should consider whether taking coffee, alcohol or recreational drugs is triggering it.

Tinnitus can also be caused by stress, so focus on doing things that make you feel calm, like getting a full night’s sleep, going to the gym or on a run or meditating. The more relaxed your mind and body is, the less likely it is that your tinnitus will flare up.

It’s worth noting that anxiety around your tinnitus can snowball: the more you’re worried about it, the more you’ll notice it, so it’s really worth readjusting your lifestyle to avoid making it worse.
