      I'm new here and also suffer from constant, loud tinnitus. I'm very interested to hear any suggestions you might have, especially as regards masking noise and tools for getting to sleep. My T is loud enough to keep me awake all night. Thank you in advance for any direction you might have time to offer!

      Thanks for the like and the support, billie. I can tell your words come from the knowledge of personal experience, and its such an inspiration that you've turned the pain and anguish into a positive thing. Its very hard to do, this forum is proof of how hard it is to do.

      3 weeks into my first spike (always had a little very high pitched t)... hanging in there. I think we have the same freq... very very high, difficult to mask. Hard to sleep...

        Habituation for me began when I finally decided to accept tinnitus and hyperacusis. Peaceful coexistence over painful and emotional resistance. Even loud and high pitch tinnitus is livable. I don't have to like my tinnitus, but I choose to make peace with it. So peace be with you all.

      from darkness to light
      1. billie48
        My tinnitus is ultra high pitch shrill and hyperacusis was piercingly hurtful like scratching glass surface with metal. I also had relentless anxiety and panic attacks. I was in a living hell a few years back, but now I am back to normal living a full and enjoyable life. I thought back then I would never recover. But never say never. My tinnitus hasn't changed. I have.

        The darkness of tinnitus can be replaced by the light of living our life abundantly. Freedom from tinnitus is possible. Be patient, have hope, and give it time. God bless your recovery.

    Tinnitus Since:
    Cause of Tinnitus:
    not sure
    I suffered tinnitus and hyperacusis very badly a few years back, with ultra high pitch screaming tinnitus and piercingly hurtful hyperacusis. They together opened the flood gate of hell of relentless anxiety and panic attacks. The sufferings were so intense that I thought I would never be able to have my good life back. But never say never. With the help of many kind and experienced folks, and by listening to their collective wisdom, with gradual switching to more positive approach, my life is back to normal nowadays. Tinnitus still rings with its ultra high pitch, but it has lost its tyranny over me. I don't care a dime about it and I live my life abundantly to compensate for tinnitus suffering (if any). Tinnitus is livable and beatable even if not cured. Don't give up hope and have faith that you can be well in due TIME. God bless.


    Postivity is a life force! If life has to be lived one way or another, why not live it positively? Nothing to lose but much more to gain by being positive.
If you have ringing ears then you've come to the right place. We are a friendly tinnitus support board, dedicated to helping you discuss and understand what tinnitus treatments may work for you.
