    It's important to say that tinnitus is a symptom and not a disease. Some people will have tinnitus because their Cochlea is damaged. And in a few, it could be caused due to hearing loss. But of course, the most common cause of tinnitus is exposure to loud noises. The noise can be a sudden burst, or it could be a constant banging that hits the ear drum and travels inside.

    A good guide you can read about tinnitus and some good natural remedies can be found here:

    It is not biological entirely. It has been predetermined, however one's mental and emotional conclusion of one's sexuality may not agree with that that has been assigned of spirit and flesh. I will thus break it down into "Psychological", "Physical", "Emotional", and "Spiritual" areas which may or may not be harmonious with each other. The most obvious external factor which first helps to affirm our sexuality would be the Physical factor, tangible signs of gender allocation. Nature only plays a role up till this part. After that would be the psychological factor, for example when a typical male sees a female, he mentally calculates mating possibilities and potential physical pleasures attained from such activity. Then followed by which the emotional factor comes into play. The male sees the female not just as another animal but a fellow human being. He questions whether he loves her. Finally he is affirmed by the the Spiritual factor, his faith that it is right in the matters regarding sexuality. Depending on what he places his faith in, the yardstick on sexuality will change. For example if he believes in God and that God created him as a male, and he believes that living as a male honors God, then he will choose to live as a male as his Faith tells him that it is right. Not always are all these in harmony. For blind and deaf people, I assume that the physical factors may be diminished though they still exist. To answer your question fully, I feel that the Physical factor itself does not play a major role in determining one's sexuality. Or rather, these factors are not on the same weighing scale. Ultimately, it is how one chooses to live that determines one's sexuality. If one is to live by faith, one's faith will determine one's sexuality. If one is to live by flesh, then the world will decide.
