      I was wondering if anyone has any advice on how to deal with loud tinnitus. I know a lot on here have it. What I mean by loud is t that is actually in your face and cant be masked by anything. I have a high pitched siren in my left ear that is CLEARLY in the foreground and background sound is behind it. Any advice would be greatly appreciated and those of you whos t goes away with simply turning on a fan, be grateful!!!!

      I have had very intrusive T for two years now, I think I'm going to try some in ear maskers to cut the shrill sound, even if I can't mask I'm hoping that it helps take off the edge a bit. No idea what type, still looking at options.

      ^ yea I just tried that before going to bed, slept for an hour and a half and now I'm awake with my head ringing Like crazy....
      I understand hearing loss and whatnot, but what the hell kind of stupid thing is tinnitus that the body does, it mentally completely corrupts itself. Now I'm laying on the couch with the TV on hoping it'll settle down soon so I can get to sleep.
