New study is even more proof of just how important it is for everyone to get the right amount of sleep.

New research shows adults who struggle with tinnitus, or ringing in their ears, have a harder time with the issue when they don’t sleep well.

Doctors at Henry Ford hospital in Detroit studied the issue.

They found not getting enough sleep, insomnia or poor sleep, makes the ringing in the ears even worse.

When patients were treated for their sleep issues, they say the tinnitus got better.
