Hi there. I started having T about 4 months ago after having an inner ear infection in both ears. (My hearing is fine, a T specialist tested it). At first I was incredibly depressed but after a few weeks of huge stress and worry, the T diminished so much I almost forgot I had it. For 2 whole months, I coped so well. It's was almost like I'd been cured. But since Friday it's been back with a vengeance especially in my left ear. Had a terrible night's sleep and now I'm incredibly down again. Is this spike a temporary thing do you think? Or maybe I have another infection? My right ear has been a little sore this past week. Please, does anyone have any advice? It's now so bad I can hear it in the daytime - it's a piercing tone, so low it's almost hard to hear but it's definitely there, like a cricket screeching away. I feel hopeless, like I've fallen back into the hole I'd almost climbed out of. Can't see how I'll cope with it like this. I'm in my final year of university too - I can't let it pull me down academically after all the work I've put in.
