        You'll be alright @Hamsti, I promise.

        Just wait for the Shore device and Xen1101 to hit the market and you'll see. It is very unlikely 1 of the 2 won't improve your QoL.

        Sorry @Hamsti. Not good to hear. So some musical tinnitus also?

        Let your ears rest, until the spike disappears.

        And don't worry, exciting treatments are on their way. Just got to be patient.

        @Hamsti, stop worrying about events so far into the future, we can't predict how bad or good they'll be, so there's no point dwelling on them.

        Always keep your focus on the problems in the now and near.

        For all we know, by the time your daughter's 5, there'll be some drug that prevents acoustic trauma.

        As for the problem at hand, I think you should do what @Stacken77 suggested and go and see an Audiologist/ENT about different Hearing Aids, that would better accommodate protecting your hearing when your daughter cries.

        Don't worry about the cost. If there's a pair of hearing aids that will address your problem, then we can just set up a crowdfunding page and link it to TT.

        @Stacken77 I would recommend it. Been on it for little over a year now and no matter how intrusive and obnoxious the sound in my head is I always sleep through like a baby. It also helps you see the light at the end of the tunnel. If you decide to go with then don’t go over 15 mg. That’s when it starts losing its sedative properties

        And though it may not seem like it, but time is on our side as we're on the cusp of many bio-medical and technological breakthroughs, such as Ebselen, new tDCS applications for tinnitus (at Regensburg university and at Antwerp Medical Hospital if you're interested), FX-322 trials that could take place in Europe in 2022 and Susan Shore's device could very well be commercialised in a year or two (fingers crossed!).

    Feb 21, 1988 (Age: 36)
    Location:
    Rhineland Palatinate, Germany
    Tinnitus Since:
    01/2021
    Cause of Tinnitus:
    Everything, I suppose. Stress, high cholesterol, TMJ...

    Signature

    As everyone here, I tried to find the cause for my multitonal, severe tinnitus. It started as a low humming and after four weeks, it turned into a nightmare.
    I found:
    - my eardrums are wasted, also my middle ear
    - my inner ear is damaged
    - my hearing is bad, moderate hearing loss
    - I suffer from postnatal depression, and started to take Zoloft at the time, which could be a cause
    - they diagnosed CMD and neck issues

    So, well, I am fucked.
