Hi! Was going thru a rough time of my husband being in the hospital this past October. Noticed one day that I had a loud 'humming in my head. Sometimes it is 'helicopers hoovering' or 'water boiling'. Thought I was getting a head cold/ear infection. Tried over the counter sinus meds to no avail. Finally made appt and the Dr. said it was tinnitus. Having a real hard time adjusting to this. Sometimes it is so loud that I cannot hear 'real' sounds. Keeping me up at night and just exausting me. Feel like I am at my wits end. I have another appt and am going to try anti-anxiety meds to see if that helps. People don't understand the torment of this condition.
