yes this is most certainly making me miserable
hi dez dog thank you for your response i will be getting testing done in about two weeks since PT is different from the normal tinnitus i can only trust they will find the underlying cause and rectify it......how are you going with it have you been to ENT people jennifer
I went to ENT originally, and was very suprised to learn my hearing was excellent. I am sure my T comes from playing in a loud rock band, so was puzzled. It gave me hope really that it was more anxiety related, and I think that started me on the road to complete habituation.
I accept it's not as bad as it could be, but I couldn't face life for a while with what I do have. I really hope (and fully expect) you find some peace and happiness soon.
thanks dezdog i think the more you stay active the better you feel . hard some times .
loud t today last night wasent so loud but i couldnt sleep all night iwonder if there is a connection . jack
Sorry to hear about today's loudness. I think being tired is definitely part of it. Once you start wondering about a connection, you can't help but hear it more too. You can't win sometimes. I hope tonight and tomorrow is better for you
hi dezdog havent herd from you how are you feeling jack
Hi Jack, I'm not so bad, travelling at the moment so plenty of distraction from the sound. How are you doing?
HI Dez went to doc today have burning sensation at back of head i think it nerve damage put me on neurontin is it wise to take this or is there something better
Hi Andy, glad to hear you've been to docs. Neurontin is gabapentin, and there have been some posts on the forum about it that you might want to check out; I haven't used it myself, and no nothing about it, other than what I've read here. Burning sensation sounds painful, hope you're well soon Andy.,
You're going to be fine, it will all be better, and you'll be fine.
hi dezdog how long do you think a temporary crutch for meds are ? and what meds are you takeing ? i think you said prozac . thanks jack
In *theory*, it's to get you back to a normal life, back to where you can cope . You can't really think beyond that point, but when you get there, you're in a better position (stronger) to think about when you want to come off them. It might be 6 -12 months. Personally, I'm predisposed to depression and anxiety, so I'm not sure when I will come off them. Everyone is different though.
hi dezdog i am useing no meds . jack
hi dezdog i go through the same thing with hissing .but anxiety will get really bad . very hard to live with it , seems to let up some at night when i get tired . im also getting some sleep .lets hope some day this will pass or we learn to live with it without pain . jack
Sorry to hear you're suffering with the anxiety. Are you on any medication to help with that? It need only be a temporary crutch
hi dezdog how are you doing jack
Hi Jack, not so bad. I can't tell if the hissing is louder or that I just am noticing it more. I'm still sleeping and I think that I should be thankful for that alone. How are you my friend?
hi dezdog it seems every other day bad anxiety and lets up a little before bed ruff going .trying ten mg of dhea today jack usa .
Is it like one good day,& then you set up your hopes for the next day?The anxiety at the end of the good day is hard to deal with ("let tomorrow be good.."). I'm not sure what the answer is-sometimes it was getting up straight away, but it was hard. Keep plugging away at it - deal with the anxiety & then everything else is manageable.
hi dezgog how are you dealing with the anxiety are you off the meds yet . jack
Hi Jack, I'm anxiety-free, but still on the meds. I don't see myself coming off them anytime soon. How are you doing?
