Hi, I read a post here about playing music on at night to help with sleep, and I also found research article on net about treating tinnitus with music. So one month ago, I felt I had nothing to lose, and so I had my daughter prepare an mp3 file of easy listening Enya music. I play the music on quiet, for the entire night. Also, at the same time I have a white noise machine, and I also play a CD of Restful Rain - constant rain sound. I keep the white noise and rain at a low level, around the same level as my tinnitus. Within a couple of weeks I felt there was some improvement in my sleep, but still I am not sleeping the entire night. I often wake up at 2 a.m. and take another medication to help me get back to sleep. Is there anyone else here that uses music for the entire night? And what has been the result. The reason I ask is that last night I woke up in the middle of the night and my tinnitus was suddenly WORSE! And I suddenly got worried that my music was set too loud and I may have harmed my hearing and made matters worse. This is despite checking the level when I go to bed, and set at reasonable quiet so I can make out the music but I just set it quietly. Yet when I got up in the middle of the night - 2 things: my tinnitus was worse, and the music sounded far too loud! I am just so confused and worried so I wonder if there is anyone else here that uses music at night for sleep. Thanks, pm.
