Member, Male

I can't believe I've survived 10 months of this shit. Or why I've stayed around. I think I'm fucked for life Mar 18, 2020

      I don't get it. Sometimes I can bare it and others it's so up front and center. I've had it 8 months and I'm really afraid this is life.

      Is it common to still get pain 8 months after onset?

      I'm nearing 8 months. I have significantly improved from the early onset, although it does have a daily impact on me. Hoping to improve

        I do still get occasional ear pain. Can anyone else relate on this time frame?

      Supplements have seemed to really help my low end Tinnitus....it's been way calmer for a month. Has returned and is annoying but manageable

      Well, today marks 6 months for me. Not really sure how to feel. Have I made some improvements? Yes but it's seemed to stop improving......

      Had to wear earplugs at the Thanksgiving dinner table. All I wanted to do was leave. Amazing how much our lives have changed. Keep going.

      SOMETIMES, I have no T in my left ear in the morning for the first few minutes. Right is constant but sometimes quieter in the morning.

      Looks like Bryan Setzer has canceled the rest of his tour due to bad tinnitus. So many musicians with this ailment. Clapton, Neil young

      It's frustrating that in the future, there's a cure, and its mechanism makes perfect sense, and we're in the past right now suffering

      Low end was completely gone this weekend, then started back Sunday evening. No rhyme or reason.

      So I don't get that full/clogged feeling much anymore. My bad ear does itch/tickle sometimes when I eat.

        Kind of funny, I got the clogged feeling twice today after posting this. But it subsides easier compared to a couple months ago where it'd be clogged for days on end

      All I need is ONE success story of someone who has measured hearing loss after their Tinnitus went away.

      Such a weird cycle lately. I wake up with the usual high pitched tv static, and that remains constant. But the low hum comes at night.

      Some days suck ass. I don't know whether to punch somebody or cry or kill myself. I'm just so fucking mad I have this.

      Low end T now constant tone. Was a warble that came and went in the beginning. Now constant tone. I'm 4 months in.

        Still constant Hum. I just don't get why I would degrade.

        Hmm. So I've worn ear plugs all day at work, the drive home and still at home....the low end hum has stopped? Not sure why and kind of afraid to take the plugs out

        These are those 3 tiered rubber ones 3m makes, which don't block much...certainly not like foam ones

      my lowend T is acting up a few nights a week now. Not sure why. New weird thing is if I look left and right quickly it goes off on off on

      If someone's tinnitus is somatic, is the prognosis better? Or the same ?

        I'm in the same, I just know that Susan Shore's device works for somatic tinnitus.

      Yes, there are stories of T going away, but being realistic, most of the stories are about the T staying roughly the same, and people getting better in spite of the huge adversity. You should be getting ready for the latter scenario, and if T goes away, it will be a beautiful surprise.

        Mine is changing all the time as well after 5 years. It changes every few hours. It is part of the T circus. People getting one sound only and stable loudness are quite lucky.... :)

        The low end change has been intermittent. 2-3 days a week, then clogged feeling.

        My high end change though has been steady and slow. Probably in 6-8 week intervals.

        It sounds like Rb86's hasn't just changed - it has changed for the better. The low end tone started bad and now is off and on. The high pitch hiss went from "crickets" to TV static (which has got to be easier to ignore than crickets).

      Does anyone have T go away with legitimate hearing loss? I have 35 db at 6k but can't find any success stories
      1. InfiniteLoop
        InfiniteLoop
        Chances of T going away decrease exponentially with time. Good initial odds, become very low after one year, especially if there is no significant improvement in between. I have that hearing loss at 8KHz, and worse above that, I do have very chronic and intrusive Tinnitus indeed.

        I've had T for 4 months. I'm just asking, are there stories of T going away, even though hearing loss remains?

      Well I just took a hearing test. Essentially same loss as onset 4 months ago. Definite notch in 4-6k hz. Around 35 db in left at 6k hz

      I pray that we all atleast get to a point of Tinnitus that is reasonable until a cure is found.
