It's been almost a full year since my tinnitus appeared, inexplicably and suddenly. At first faint and localized to my left ear in the form of a costant buzzing, then gradually stronger and extended to both ears, it has managed to disrupt many things. I loved silence because of my musical interests, especially composition, which might appear contradictory but truthfully it's not. Not being able to appreciate complete, sheer silence has compromised my carefree spirit in everything that concerns sound. Now, one year later, with my left ear buzzing to its climax as I write this post and my right ear exhibiting its other, completely different, shrill and monotone whistle, I just humbly ask for some advice. What could I do to try and reduce its volume? I've seen many ENTs, done many exams, taken product such as Ginkgo, vitamins and magnesium to no avail. It all seems so arbitrary. I'm wondering if actively listening to masking sounds, sch as white noise, could produce residual benefits in the long run? Should I dedicate myself to daily exercises, perhaps? I've seen many recommend all and every one of these things, I'm wondering if any of these suggestions could factually help. Habituation is definitely not an option. I'm just so clueless.
