      @AnthonyMcDonald I jumped right on the YouTube thing day 1. I even put under my pillow. Almost drove me to the edge. BAD medicine.

        Wish all tinnitus sound therapy/zapper YouTube videos warned to never play at high volume or anywhere near your head. It's a scary time and people end up causing more damage desperate for relief. I can play sound (6khz) from a speaker on low about 8 ft. away and it calms the squeals but I learned that. These videos need warnings and instructions.

        They should create an option of an auto-db sound limit sensor to prevent going louder than the db you selected. (Is there a such thing?)

      Have you matched your tone on tinnitus videos? Find one that masks, play a few minutes (speakers or VERY low on over ear headphones). Should help reduce the ring for a few minutes to a few hours. It worked for me at start. When ears got worse it stopped working but it masks & calms after an hour. Some people use tracks all night as sound therapy & say it gives results of lowered ring all day. Worth a shot!

        My top pitch tone spikes as well when its on but at a low low volume after 30-60 min. it calms/slows the squeals once I stop. Must be used with caution. I'm sure some people arent aware to adjust volume and have the speaker at a distance and hurt their poor ears.

I've been pushing thru with lots of prayer,hope I don't offend anybody, but I believe I'm getting strength from somewhere, maybe my mom's spirit, definitely from my Higher Power

        What do you mean you aren't taking care of yourself? I'm not to proud to tell u I went days without a shower for awhile. I literally could not stay awake. Husband eally didn't know what to say. I'd pull it together & get supper cooked. But the suffering was really tough. Do what you have to do if that means stay in a quiet place do it. Get a cat - me & him would sleep all day. I didn't feel lonely.

        Misunderstand me correctly, I'm also waiting for Shore, but directing every thought, prayer and second of my time towards thinking about this is extremely counter-productive. Putting my mind to something productive helps me move focus away from the sound while I wait.

        Yes it is horrid not being able to just play and enjoy guitar! Id advise you get musicians earplugs, wear them, they allow you to still hear, they just drop the db a bit. And maybe try magnesium supplements, I had success with it in the past, about 5 years ago.

        Please stop blaming yourself. I play a little (acoustic) guitar & sing. I gave up my music for over 2 yrs. I never ever thought I'd not have music. I picked up my guitar a few weeks ago. Have no calluses. Went to a community jam last week. An electric bass player & monitors. I stuffed Kleenex in my ears but it was f'd up. I want some of those fancy ear things singers use. Any suggestions anybody??

It's frikkin 130 a.m. my husband hits the hay at midnite every nite & up at 8.why I do this to myself? He's got chronic leukemia & had massive heart attack end of Jan.2 stents. He still works p-t & on the farm. I think sweating alot helps him.i sit & watch tv alot. I'm waiting to get an appt with a therapist.

        I had a degree of hyperacusis during. During onset. Maybe 3 to 4 months. Then my T settled into a constant super high pitch whine that it has remained at until this day. Or until my spike last month anyways.. after about three weeks I was back to this base pitch. As far as reactive.. it mostly depends on my current state of anxiety.
