That is not the case for all causes of tinnitus. I recommend that you see an otolaryngologist and obtain a hearing test. Your tinnitus could be due to medications, aging, loud noise exposure, etc. You may need hearing aids. At the least, you should mask your tinnitus with more pleasant background (white) noise.
