Hi, My name is Patrick I'm 26, I've had very high pitched tinnitus for 3 months now. It started over a weekend I gradually began to hear a 15-14Khz noise similar to those made old CRT TVs. I still have no idea what the cause is or was. I thought it was these pills I was taking for hair loss but I only started taking them a week earlier and stopped when I noticed the noise, none of the doctors think it's related. I didn't have an exposure to loud noise. I've seen an audiology and an ENT doctor and so far my hearing is fine. A CT scan showed a sinus infection but that's it. They gave me some stuff that, but I still have Tinnitus so that can't be it. It sometimes gets really loud in one ear for 3 seconds (it block hearing) then goes back to normal but this is rare once every 3-4 weeks or so, I don't know what brings it on. Sometimes it's pretty quiet, usually after waking up, then gets worse in the afternoon. The sound was consistent in the first 3 weeks and after that it started oscillating and has been that way ever since. I hate sounding like a depressed sad sack, but there are nights where I just can't sleep even with the radio on. I'm only young and now I have to spend the rest of my life with this horrible noise screaming at me 24/7 . The most depressing thing of all is that all of the advice says online and elsewhere says that there is nothing that can be done and to stop looking for a cure and deal with it, even the success stories I've read are from people who have just gotten used to it. I'm a strong believer in solving problems and this goes against everything that motivates me. I was reading something about tracing the issue to the path in the brain that is responsible for epilepsy and that medication for anti-epilepsy medication can help but I don't know about it. I really need help as this sound driving me crazy and I don't know if I can stay sane at this rate I've joined this forum in the hope that some of you can offer advice and support on dealing with it and perhaps help me work the underling cause as well as sleep better.
