Abstract

The global pandemic of new Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) is a grave threat to both physical and mental health. We must be mindful of the consequences of psychological effects that caused by COVID-19 in healthy population and people with psychiatric problems (Asmundson et al., 2020). In many countries, health anxiety was reported, which is characterized by catastrophic interpretations of bodily sensations and physical changes, which generates dysfunctional beliefs about health and illness, may lead to different clinical symptoms and disorders. Recently, the outpatient department of Xiangya, Changsha, received a couple of patients with tinnitus when onset is related to stress or anxiety due to COVID-19 pandemic. We report a case of tinnitus in a patient with anxiety and insomnia related to COVID-19 and recover rapidly after psychiatric intervention and therapy.
