I have had tinnitus for 30 years, and habituated to it. In the last 5 years it has not been a problem at all. Last week I was in a store when the tannoy system malfunctioned. It let out a piercing noise for a minute, and my tinnitus has become as bad as it was 30 years ago. I'm experiencing the full spectrum of symptoms, anxiety, agitation, sleep problems, poor concentration. 30 years ago, it got so bad that I attempted suicide, was in a coma for three days, and when I woke, was taken to an Asylum where I stayed for 6 weeks. I am clear that this is not my intention, but need support. I'm sure things have moved on in 30 years, so any help about sleep in particular, and relaxation techniques would be appreciated. Thanks for reading this post.
