I honestly don't know if I can even be on this site already. I've only had the ringing in my left ear for over 4 weeks. But it's making me insane, I suppose it makes everyone insane in the beginning. The ENT said it was because I have a lack of sleep, too much salt intake and stress and my hearing is "perfect". So obviously, I tried sleeping more and maintained a healthy diet, also tried methods to calm down. Yes it got more silent, but often it's very loud again. I'm only 16 and have always ALWAYS been very careful with my ears since i've always, before I had this, said "the only thing I wouldn't be able to handle is tinnitus" not even kidding. And now it's here and I already want to end my life it's only been a month. But my point is. Shouldn't it be gone by now? I'm not tired nor anything. And I lost hope on it going away already... But I can't cope with it... I don't know what to do... I do grind my teeth when I'm focussing because I have ADHD and that's sadly how I focus. If I learn to stop, will it go away? Or will i Learn to deal with it? I went on this forum because internet only tells you horrible things and they only add to the stress. Pleased to meet all of u.
