Just found this forum and glad I did. Have been reading some of the threads and was uplifted by the posts. My T began around 8 years ago and was most likely caused by exposure to loud music in my younger days. I find it gets worse when watching TV. It is a high pitched frequency of around 10000Hz which at times is very debilitating indeed. Worst times of course are the quiet moments, which I try to avoid as much as possible. At one point last weekend I thought it would drive me mad. The past few days although difficult are just about bearable. Don't know how I will feel tomorrow, next week, month,year. Anyway nice to be here and look forward to chatting with some fellow sufferers. Bye ......GTG.
