My main electric buzz sound has developed into a sharp, high-pitched hiss over the last month. Still up and down and always audible. Aug 1, 2020

      Having a history of anxiety and depression makes the T so much more difficult to deal with. I thought I knew what hell felt like until this.

      Tinnitus is absolutely pointless from a biological standpoint and the brain does nothing but drive itself insane!

      There’s never a day I can’t hear it and not a sound that can mask it. This is not what life was supposed to be like.

      Four months in. T is up and down and constantly changing still. Just when I think it's getting better it hits me in the face with a brick.

      Does T ever actually get better or do the very brief moments of silence exist only to torture us even more?

      While the T is still intrusive and unable to be masked, sometimes I feel like the harshness is better than it was a month ago. Hard to tell.

      Almost three months from the onset of this intrusive T. Having a difficult time with it mentally.

      While I don’t feel sensitive to sounds, noticing my T is fighting against noise and gets louder around sound. This is torture.

        I’m emotionally better today but the T and reactivity is just as bad. Thanks for always asking @LilSass! How are you doing today?

        Doing okay. Feel sometimes that I'm going in circles trying to figure out the cause - not entirely sure it was from meds. Hoping that upper cervical chiro will help. Doing some counselling to stay sane. T is still the same - at least it's consistent (silver lining?) Life is so weird right now. :/

        Totally get that. I keep trying to think back to March - did the daily blender I used to make morning smoothies cause it? Was it the 15 minutes of using an electric leaf blower? Or the 5 minutes of using a nail gun? Who knows. Glad to hear you're doing better today. Life is definitely weird, @LilSass.

        Geez, isn't it the oddest thing having a conversation like this? Never did I think...

        Mine has pretty much been an electrical buzz/hiss since it started in March. There are some more mild high pitched tones in the background but those are somewhat masked by ambient sounds and don't bother me nearly as much as the buzz. I've also had this low pitch warble sound since 2008 that comes and goes over the years, but again, does not bother me and is only heard in a quiet room.

        It's beyond strange. Last thing I ever thought I'd be dealing with, for sure.

      When one has a relatively quiet day, you hold onto the moment.

      Yesterday was the quietest day I've had since onset two months ago. 1.5/10. Now today it's back up to 8/10. The ups and downs are torture!

        It would be much worse if it were to be relentlessly at the same level. It never goes away for good overnight. There are always lots of fluctuations. What matters is the monthly trend and the global low. Your low is already very low - others take years to get there. Unless you hurt your ears again, you should be ok.

        Thanks Bill - your words on this forum are reassuring. I woke up to near silence from the buzzing/hissing sound this morning, I'd say 0.5 out of 10, which has fluctuated around throughout the day so far ranging from 1, 2 and 3/10. Even with these lows, due to the nature and "feeling" of the buzzing, I can still hear it over almost all ambient noise short of a running faucet/shower.

        Your T is very new and it is already changing for the better. Let's hope that 3-6-12 months from now you will feel a lot better.
