I have seen several patients recently who complain of tinnitus and have untreated sleep apnea. What could the connection be?
When I have recommended a sleep study and the results are positive for sleep apnea, therapy has improved the tinnitus symptoms.
Often using a CPAP will make a difference immediately. I have had patients go from being severely affected by tinnitus, to not being bothered by it at all once they have started using a CPAP machine.
