Tinnitus went from center of head to just right ear. Trying to stay calm about this. Seems to be staying this way. Oct 23, 2020 at 11:00 PM

      Two years this week. I’ve got undeniable signs of improvement/habituation. Bad days mixed in there, but increasing optimism for the future.

      Best tinnitus day in 18 months. Hours when I couldn’t hear it, even when looking. Hoping this trend continues.

        Can you hear it in a quiet room (or when you wear earplugs in a quiet room)?

        That's what I call a result! Good luck on continued progress.

      I wish I had found this forum earlier. My ignorance in the beginning cost me greatly.

      Statins and tinnitus. Anybody have thoughts about a possible relationship?

      Becoming convinced the medical/scientific community will never have an answer for this.

        Never is such a strong word, but sadly I feel deep within that we are a long way from an answer. The brain is super complex and still a mystery in many areas.

      Woke up today to horrible increase after a somewhat decent week. Absolutely no reason for it. I can’t fight this much longer.

        What matters is the monthly trend and the global lows. Setbacks are irrelevant as far as your long term outlook is concerned.

      One year today. Things have improved slightly. I question everyday how long I can do this. Faking happiness as much as I can for my family.

      Lingering on first ten days I had this. Didn’t have an understanding of it and don’t think I handled it right. Blew my chance to get better

      Was stuck with a needle at work from a known IVDU. Put on PEP for the exposure. Terrified of it damaging my ears. No win situation.

      Nearly ten months in. Absolutely miserable. I’m drowning here. I don’t have the mental makeup to beat this. Obsessed with this sound.

        Understandable. I just had a daytime nap and my noise came on strong when I woke up. I was doing quite well today until then. Maybe I can knock it out somehow.

        My psychiatrist called Dr. Shulman in NY. She said I can call him too. At least I have some gabapentin and clonazepam.

      Dealing with huge mood swings. Optimism alternating with misery. Simply unable to ignore this.

        Same here. A “normal” day is hard to duplicate.

      Absolutely have to get on a plane tomorrow. Worried of making things worse. I've got muffs, plugs, and NC headphones. Unsure of best option

        Was it an Airbus plane?

        No, it was a Boeing. Ninth row. Second flight was a regional jet with the engines far at the back of the plane. Loudest thing on that flight was the PA speaker right above my head. Both flights were pretty short.

      I’ve had five good days of feeling close to normal. Not sure why, I just hope it continues.

        I had 3 days in a row but today I woke up and my T was louder. Very odd. Hope yours last :)

      For the first time in eight months I didn’t hear my tinnitus all day today.

        Is it completely gone, or can you still hear it in a quiet room or when you wear earplugs?

      I seriously need to give this site a break. Any suggestions on how I can actually pull that off? I'm serious.

        Ask for a voluntary ban from the site. I have done that a couple of times.

        I so get it. "Just turn on a fan, distract yourself" what a load of crap.
