My depression has gotten me so behind at work that I'm forced to pull an all-nighter even though I just want to die. May 6, 2021 at 6:46 AM

      I'm unhappy to announce I have added dog whistle to my repertoire of sounds.

      Dear Tinnitus, if you could just stop getting worse that would be great. Thanks.

      This ringing is still devastating, but it's starting to bother me a little less. Little by little. Progress.

        You will get to a place where it doesn't bother you. I sit in silent rooms with it ringing, and unless I suddenly think about it - then I don't even notice it. And when I do, it doesn't bother me. I just laugh at it. *ring ring ring* okay, I hear ya, you annoying little ears. :p

        For some reason, I can’t comment back.

        @Steph1710 Do you worry about loud sounds? I'm so damned worried about making things worse I feel like maybe I have developed a phobia. I'd like to just go on with normal life, and not wear earplugs so much.

      Anyone gotten tattooed with tinnitus? Going to finish up my neck and torso. Wondering if plugs would be good or bad during my neck

        I've not had tattoos post-T, but I'm thinking for the neck, follow the dental protocol -- no plugs due to occlusion effect, and tat 5 seconds/stop for 10 (which they kind of do anyway).

        @tracyNYC I figured occlusion would probably would be a problem. So close to the ear though. I'll just use my db meter while I get some other work done and see how loud the gun really is.

      Do benzos lower your tinnitus? Doesn't do jack for mine. Just wondering if I'm alone in this regard.

        @kingsfan for me no. I take Klonopin and does do anything for my tinnitus. Except now being addicted to Klonopin.

        @KWC I'm sorry you have become dependent. I always strictly turned down benzos until my tinnitus got bad. I take a low dose of valium every once in while when the stress gets too much to handle.

      T is louder with plugs, but much easier to deal with. Hearing it over other sounds just makes it seem even worse.

      My ears have been doing that thing where you hearing goes out and you get a single tone going for a few seconds all day.

        @GBB Yep, as soon as I start to feel better and dig into my work it all just gets worse and I fall down the rabbit hole again. Rinse and repeat. I try to be optimistic for others while I'm on here, but I'm becoming exhausted.

        @kingsfan That's understandable - I would be the same - but your health comes first. They can't rely on you if you're not well. Good luck with the new framework, hope it's finished quickly at least :)

        I go to sleep with a long hot back across my forehead and then a smaller thera-pearls rectangular pack under my ear so I can still hear the water app playing. I heat the large pack up for 2 minutes and the smaller pack for 32 seconds. It's also a conditioned response. My body knows when I put the packs on, it's time to go to sleep. I got both on Amazon.

      Ears constantly have pressure lately. I think driving is causing it. Been wearing custom Westone earplugs with the solid filter.

        I have also been wearing Westone earplugs lately and my ears have been hurting for two days in a row. I was just thinking maybe I need to increase my turmeric supplements.

      It's funny how upset I was when my tinnitus became intrusive a few months ago. Now I'd give almost anything just to get back to that level.

        @Tweedleman It's crazy how 85db felt like nothing before all of this. I spent probably thousands of hours in 100+ db practice studios and venues. Now I seem to cringe at anything above 70db.

      Got blasted by a sound bar at Best Buy. Walked away immediately. Ears feel full now. Do I just take a triple dose of NAC now or what?
      1. Bill Bauer
        Bill Bauer
        If you have been taking NAC, you are in a good shape. The spike (if any) will most likely be temporary. Having said that, of course learn from your mistakes and attempt to not give any more spikes to yourself.
        Dec 2, 2020
      2. kingsfan

        I haven't been very consistent with the NAC lately, and hadn't taken any yesterday until after being exposed to the loud sound bar.

      Been wearing an earplug in my bad ear, and the ringing settled down a bit. Ran the faucet and it kicked up again, even with the earplug in.
