I noticed my ring about 5 years ago. Long history of sinus allergy problems. Massive eyebrow headaches were my main complaint. They seemed to last for 3 days. Work was a struggle. Luckly, I was able to sleep at night. That was a blessing. First thing in the morning, eyebrow headache would settle back in. Always a problem in late August and early spring. Prescription headache meds were a blessing. Always did the Zpacks with a steriod. Usually helped within hours and set me straight for many weeks. Then boom, here we go again and I would struggle through it. Decided to have the sinus surgery done. ENT said Xrays showed areas of concern. Signed up. About 1 week before the surgery, the ring magically started. I compare my ring to what you would experience right after a concert. Had it many times in the 70's into the 80's, but no concerts in many years. Guessing my frequency is 6-8Khz. I have been blessed that I can pass the audio tests at ENT office and hearing is most normal for 57. It's just background ring for me. I think it has grown louder in last year, but I can watch TV with no awareness until, Oh crud, there it is........Wondering if the Tinnitus Terminator would help. I will search this forum for any success stories.
