Hi I got my tinnitus the 4th may 2015. I have been big fan of loud music both on big speakers, bose qc25 noise cancelling headphones, in-ear headphones. It started mild on 4th may and developed to severe today the 15th may 2015. I cant focus now even. I am trying to mask with rain or other noises, but it doesnt mask. The only thing that can mask my tinnitus is White noise at loud. Very very annoying!! I am hopeless. What to do... i never knew this could happen to me... ;( im crying periodically.
