      Cause of Tinnitus:
      I don't wear bonnets so maybe a hive in my head. Either way, I have been a lurker of these forums for quite some time as I have had Tinnitus for a number of years. Not sure how it started but the high pitch ringing has gotten worse over the past year.

      There are a whole slew of possible culprits to point fingers at from years of attending concerts, high blood pressure, stress and anxiety, ototoxic medications, denial and swimming. I can't seem to ignore the ringing anymore as it is constantly screaming these days. I haven't seen an audiologist yet and haven't been seeing a doctor with any regularity as I am relatively healthy. But the time has come to be proactive in taming the bees.

      I appreciate the forums and sharing of personal struggles and successes and I imagine you may hear from me more often around here.

      Welcome to tinnitus talk.
      I would have your ears checked and hearing test.
      Also see ENT and audiology.
      At night play natural sounds set it below your tinnitus so your brain works hard pick up the lower sound you have chosen and learns your brain not to focus on your tinnitus and will help through the day in time....
      Happy Christmas...lots of love glynis

      not sure
      Hope you are successful in taming the bees (lol), and if you need something to drown them out, consider these resources:

      TT's audio player:

      or this online sound library, particularly the self-mix nature sounds:

      or download free sound generator ‘aire freshener’:

      or search youtube with words like 'tinnitus masking sounds', 'white noise', 'rain sound' etc
