Hi, Justin here. I started having tinnitus over 15 years ago. It turned on that day when I was 21 and has never shut off. Its that common very high pitched tone that would make people scream like nails on a chalkboard. I am sure everyone's experience is terrible in their own way. But I have fought it from continuing to work through the pain and headaches, into school where I completed my undergrad and now I am in medical school and have hit my hurdle that I do not think i am making it over. I am away from my family and kids. the workload is insane and the intensity and volume is getting out of control i have no idea what to do. Nothing I have ever tried has worked.
