Do people with chromesthesia and tinnitus see the "ringing" caused by tinnitus?

Why tag stress? Do you only want to focus on stress-induced tinnitus? From Wikipedia: "Tinnitus...can result from a wide range of underlying causes. The most common cause is noise-induced hearing loss. Other causes include: neurological damage (multiple sclerosis), ear infections, oxidative stress, emotional stress, foreign objects in the ear, nasal allergies that prevent (or induce) fluid drain, wax build-up, and exposure to loud sounds. Withdrawal from benzodiazepines...sensorineural hearing loss or congenital hearing loss...certain medications (ototoxic tinnitus)." – Nick Stauner Jan 29 '14 at 0:40
@nick every kind of tinnitus is fine (for the question...) – draks ... Jan 29 '14 at 10:25
Yes, I do see my ears ringing. All vibrations have color. – dendroalsia Nov 9 '14 at 4:43
