I also have tinnitus. For many years. Things that make it worse for me are sugar and TV. I suspect a high frequency put out by the picture circuitry is an irritant to the human ear. Possibly animal ears. When I switched from a CRT monitor on my computer to an newer LCD type, my tinnitus diminished a lot. But it's still there. I try to avoid extended TV watching and eating sugary junk foods. I hope this helps you. It's worth a try.
