      Gp was no use
      Always had a noise but now after a meal out it has increased greatly the same a other posts but its now at the level that I can t take it to say I am stressed is a understatement I am in my bed earphones on crying deeply knowing there is no end to this and can t sleep can t do anything You's are all brave people but I just can t do this
      The only thing Shona wanted was me and only thing I ever wanted was shona and without my life with her there's nothing this is so lonely following to peaces I just can t shake this feeling I was struggling at first as some of you know but now I am almost at the bottom why has so little been done about this condion it can drive you mad

      Andy. Having T is very tough. Ive had mine since the spring time. Its high pitched. In both ears and can be maddening at times. Thr thing I know is that we cant let it get the best of us. There ate great people on here. Try listening to music with heafphones whrn you go to sleep. I knoe for me. When I get overtired its worse. Its all a cycle. Try the Universal Sound Therapy website. I havent bern doing it long enough. But they say the white noise may help. You can do it. Stay strong

      Hi Peg,forgive me ,but Universal Sound Therapy ,well it is nothing to do with White Noise.

      Its a therapy in its own right,white noise is just a masker.

      All the best ,Pete

      Most likely hearing loss
      Unfortunately, I have never really had any luck with sound therapies. I do use a white noise machine sometimes but usually I don't do any sounds my T tries to compete and always wins. I do, however, listen to audio books on my phone using the audible app and that is great and helps you forget about T as you get lost in the story....
