Relationship between Subjective Tinnitus Perception and Psychiatric Discomfort.
TLDR
Patients with severe tinnitus-related distress are routinely invited to accomplish psychometric questionnaires to assess the possibility of a neuropsychiatric evaluation and/or specific pharmacological planning, and recommend the administration of HADS, as a reliable and quick instrument.
Tinnitus and Neuropsychological Dysfunction in the Elderly: A Systematic Review on Possible Links
TLDR
Tinnitus, which is usually associated with age-related hearing loss, might negatively affect emotional wellbeing and cognitive capacities in older people, but further studies are required to improve the evidence.
The Neural Mechanisms of Tinnitus: A Perspective From Functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging
TLDR
The results have revealed various neural network alterations in tinnitus patients, including the auditory system, limbic system, default mode network, attention system, and some other areas involved in memory, emotion, attention, and control.
Role of worry in patients with chronic tinnitus and sensorineural hearing loss: a preliminary study
TLDR
It is found that tinnitus-related anxiety and depressive symptoms and handicap were significantly associated with proneness to worry (linear regression models, p < 0.01), whereas no associations were found with the psychoacoustic measures, suggesting the usefulness of worry assessment when managing chronic tinnitis in clinical practice.
Tinnitus and its relationship with anxiety and depression in the elderly: a systematic review
TLDR
A probable association between the variables for both genders has been found, suggesting that the advancing age contributes to the increase of tinnitus severity and its psychological symptoms, affecting the quality of life of these individuals.
Psychological mediators of chronic tinnitus: The critical role of depression.
The Relationship of Tinnitus Distress With Personality Traits: A Systematic Review
TLDR
The evidence on specific personality traits as a risk factor for tinnitus distress is inconclusive, but some evidence on a positive association with neuroticism is identified.
Coping in Chronic Tinnitus Patients
TLDR
Patients with higher tinnitus handicap scores demonstrated the use different coping strategies than the patients with lower distress scores, suggesting insight in coping strategies in a group of patients with high tinnitis burden is useful for counseling patients.
Psychiatric (Axis I) and personality (Axis II) disorders and subjective psychiatric symptoms in chronic tinnitus
TLDR
Tinnitus patients are prone to episodes of major depression and often also have obsessive-compulsive personality features, and psychiatric disorders seem to be comorbid or predisposing conditions rather than consequences of tinnitus.
The relation among tinnitus distress, psychoacoustic parameters and anxiety state in hearing-impaired patients with chronic tinnitus: a pilot study
TLDR
Persian version of THI and STAI are correlated questionnaires, therefore, Persian version of these questionnaires are valuable tools for evaluation of patients with chronic tinnitus.

The association between tinnitus and posttraumatic stress disorder.
TLDR
Audiologists should be aware that patients with tinnitus and PTSD will require test protocols and referrals that address these powerful responses, and several neural mechanisms linked to both tinnitis and PTSD affect auditory behaviors.
Analysis of mental disorders in tinnitus patients performed with Composite International Diagnostic Interview
TLDR
The present study has detected a high rate of psychological disorders occurring in patients with chronic tinnitus, and the patients diagnosed with psychological disorders were predominantly affected by affective and anxiety disorders.
Relationship between tinnitus severity and psychiatric disorders.
TLDR
The severity of tinnitus is associated with psychiatric disorders, as well as with the severity of anxiety and depression in tinnitis patients, and may account for approximately 20% of the variance of the observed association.
Comorbidity of chronic tinnitus and mental disorders.
TLDR
The comorbidity of chronic tinnitus with depressive and anxiety disorders is more common and may have treatment implication to alleviate the stress and dysfunction resulted from chronic t Finnitus.

Pilot study to evaluate psychiatric co-morbidity in tinnitus patients with and without hyperacusis
TLDR
The hypothesis that affective and anxiety disorders correlate more highly with a diagnosis of tinnitus with hyperacusis was confirmed and was particularly true whenhyperacusis is diagnosed using the GÜF or the ULL.
Cortico-limbic morphology separates tinnitus from tinnitus distress
TLDR
It is confirmed that people with chronic tinnitus exhibit reduced gray matter in ventromedial prefrontal cortex (vmPFC) compared to controls matched for age and hearing loss, and the data suggest that the neural systems associated with chronicTinnitus are different from those involved in aversive or distressed reactions to tinn Titus.
