      God. It's weird to think, just a year ago I was shopping for an engagement ring, looking forward to my life. Amazing how things change.

      Been almost 6 months since T onset and zero improvement. Guess I'm not part of those BS stats. Sorry. Just bitter tonight.

        I hear ya, 7 months for me with no improvement. Hard not to be bitter sometimes. I'm at one of those points myself. But we'll swing back.

      Right when I start habituating, T decides to crank up the volume. Just a cruel game life is sometimes. Trying to hang in there.

        In the same boat Ronnie; hard to get used to something that is always "new". Hang in there, we'll win this fight eventually.

        still anything is possible. do you sleep with a fan/sound machine. I find this helpful

        @ryan1234 I do sleep with a fan. Doesn't really mask the tinnitus fully, it does help though.

      So if finger tapping technique doesn't work, does it mean somatic tinnitus?
      1. BLane

        I think somatic T is when you can alter it by jaw, eye, and neck movements. Not sure if finger tapping technique applies.

        He thinks it's related to my head injury, or maybe a misaligned jaw.

        Could be the trigger but usually there's also some hearing loss. In fact, nearly every adult has some hearing loss. However, ENTs and audiologists only consider the most important frequencies and as Foncky states, they don't consider all types of hearing loss.

      Officially T for two months. Broke down and cried today. As a grown man, not something I want to admit. Some days good. Today hard.

        Never cried, was really close in the early days. It was so frustrating it almost brought me to tears.

        Stay strong! Man or not, sometimes things just get the best of you.

        Hope you habituate soon!

    Cause of Tinnitus:
    Mild head injury maybe... but who knows...
    My name is Ronald, and I live in Canada, 31 years of age. Prior to T, I had the most amazing life and was a happy go lucky guy. After T, it all came crashing down. I've never been more depressed in my life, and I keep having feelings of depersonalisation. I don't feel like the same person anymore, and it's scary.

    I'm on this forum to help cope, stay inspired, to keep up on research news (praying for a cure one day), and keep others up to date on the "alternative" approaches I'm taking to help combat this terrible affliction.
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.
