So. Apparently my new AD, Rameron, makes my T not so intrusive... Interesting. Apr 25, 2018 at 9:29 AM

        ADs can have that capability of modulating the T sound. Sometimes it gets better, sometimes it gets worse. In my case, I would say that is just sounds a bit different, more uniform and slightly easier to deal with. Main AD effect is that I do not care as much about the T.

        @vermillion. I am taking a low dose of Celexa (5 to 10mg). The standard 20mg tends to agitate the T.

      My tinnitus has increased in the past two weeks. I started playing in a live band again. I am about to quit the band because I don’t want my t to get any louder or I won’t be able to drive my car.
      Band isn’t gonna be too happy.
      Thoughts?

      Welp. My tinnitus loudness has permanently increased. No new sounds thankfully. Just the loudness. I have no idea what caused it this time.

      Hello @derpytia! I came across your posts about the use of musicians earplugs and know that you were a college student when you used them. I would like to ask you more about the use of them but I cannot find "start a conversation" in the "conversation" settings of the forum panel . Would you mind sending me a message so I can ask you questions there? Many thanks!

        Thanks so much for your reply @derpytia!! I have got your message but could not find a reply button in the inbox. So the conversation is read only. I am not sure if this is because I am a new member ... So maybe I ask you here.
        Do your tinnitus amplify after you wear the musicians earplugs? If yes, how is the intensity of it? Can you withstand it when using the musicians earplugs for hours of lectures?

        It would be appreciated if you can pass me your email address("conversation" again) so I can further communicate with you. Thanks a lot again!

        @John G, my doc is a pretty smart guy. One of the few doctors I haven't had a problem with yet. But it's true. Everyone on my mom's side of the family is from Ashkenazi Jewish heritage and everyone has gotten cancer at some point in their lifetime, especially female descendants including my mom's mom and my great grandmother who died from it. There is a HUGE chance that my mother and I will get it.

        Cannot begin to tell you how many articles are put out by the press around the world saying "but don't worry people with tinnitus aren't bothered by it after awhile". habituation doesn't always mean we aren't bothered by it. it means we have somehow managed to be productive or functional to some degree despite our T. It's so misleading when they say we aren't bothered by it. No wonder the world doesn't care about us.
