Does tinnitus get worse with time?

Answer: 

Although some people say that their tinnitus has worsened with time, many say the opposite, that it has got better or got quieter.

This can happen for several reasons: there has been a physical or psychological change, they have found a good treatment, they have grown accustomed to it, or a combination of all three.
