Hi iam 46 female from the South of England. My Tinnitus started in April 2013 i have never had any problems with my ears until then. First time i went to the doctors with the problem he prescribed me a nasal spray, the 2nd time anithistermine (sp) and passed me onto the ENT at the local hospital. Finally after 4 months i got my appointment to basically be told nothing we can do. I have bad bouts of tinnitus for about a week then it seems to quieten down for awhile (never goes away) but don't seem as bad. Then comes back extremely bad every 6 weeks or so for a week.When its this bad i hardly sleep its my whole head that is effected, a very loud white noise kind of sound. I have got to the point i hate bedtime, i stay up as late as possible but that still don't help, as soon as i lay down it starts, music do not help. iam at my wits end and wondered if anyone could give me any more ideas. many thanks.
