My name is Caryl and I apparently have sudden onset tinnitus. Just woke up with it one morning 3 months ago. I hate to admit my age of 73 because until this happened I felt 35. My tinnitus is 24/7 and fairly severe buzzing. I tried my best to not acknowledge it and told no one about it. I felt very alone because I didn't known how prevalent this was. I still work and I am very active in my community so that served as a temporary distraction. End of December 2015 I went to my primary doctor who acknowledged that I may have Tinittus and also had me have an MRI plus she referred me to an ENT doctor. A hearing test showed I have hearing loss in the high frequency and hearing aids were suggested. Finally told my significant other who has been absolutely wonderful and even paid for these Resound hearing aids ($5800) which have a Tinittus manager. Just have them a week and the T manager will be installed tomorrow. So far I have had some relief so we will see if it gets better. Sleeping is a problem even with T therapy machine. I want to know if anyone else wakes up with a quesy stomach almost every morning. I see there is a TV ad for a supplement that supposedly helps. Anyone ever use it? Lastly this should be recognized more as a disability by the insurance companies and government agencies. Perhaps more research on this would be supported. Thanks for this forum.
