A chart review of Veterans with (1) Tinnitus Only, (2) Tinnitus + Anxiety/Depression, and (3) Tinnitus + post-traumatic stress disorder was conducted to determine the prevalence of comorbid health conditions. Patients with comorbid mental health conditions also were likely to suffer from additional comorbid health conditions (e.g., insomnia, etc).
