Hi everyone, my name is Jenni, I am 42yrs old and have tinnitus in the right side of my head which has appeared out of nowhere. It is a high frequency continuous noise that sounds like "Christmas (cicada) beetles". I can't remember when it started but it became noticeable sometime in the beginning of this year. For some reason, my tinnitus has been turned way up lately and I'm not sure if that's just due to my own perception or if there's an underlying cause. At the moment, my tinnitus is causing me some distress and I have problems sleeping and concentrating at work. I have sought help from a few doctors in the last couple of weeks, out of sheer desperation. Been to my family GP, an Audiologist and an ENT. They all tell me there is no cure and that I just have to live with it. Not exactly what one wants to hear..... Anyway, I would like to know if someone can point me in the right direction in terms of information and/or advice. I understand that there's a wealth of useful info on the net and on this forum but I suffer from information overload and get overwhelmed by it all. So, it would be great if other members could point me in the right direction and tell me what to read/try. I would appreciate any help from anyone! Thanks all!
