      Yes I habituated to high frequency tinnitus.

      Did anybody habituate to freaking loud medium frequency hums?

      I decided I like the hearing aids better, so I switched back to those.

      Is your high frequency tinnitus improving? I have such high frequency that it sometimes buzzes my head, it’s not super loud most times. I can mask it with cicadas.

      It’s hard to tell whether I’m seeing actual improvement or getting used to it more. But I do think I’m doing better overall now than a few months ago (I’m 18 months in).

      I found this video yesterday. It has sooo many positive testimonials in the comments, unlike most of the videos I've seen. I listened to it several hours yesterday, and when I went to bed, I could still hear it as hallucinations in my head. When I woke up today, I could not believe my ears -the high pitched tinnitus that was driving me nuts was not there!

      Interestingly, this actually gave me the most anxious day, as I was fearing the noise would come back any second. I had about 6 silent hours, now it's creeping back in. I just put the video playing again.

      I'm going to be testing this for sometime, maybe I'll make a new thread just for this if it really is a miracle cure & this was not just a coincidence.

      Let me know if it works for you. This is the video:

      Mine turned into what you are experiencing. Every few days I get this high pitched screech that lasts a day or a few. I can’t mask it at all, except for running water. Hot running water for a sound machine doesn’t work. Violet and pink noise irritate me. I have tried crickets and cicadas. I don’t think they help much. Birds help a little.
      They still think it’s related to TMJ as my hearing has been stable, but I can’t find anyone to treat my TMJ.

      I try to tell myself it won’t hurt me no big deal just ignore it. Yeah easier said than done. Sometimes I wish I was in my 80s. Then I would only have a few years left to deal with this.

      Resurrecting this thread. Wondering how those who suffer from high frequency tinnitus are doing out there. I have to confess, I’m having a hard time. The worst part is not being able to mask at all. I just can’t find anything that is high frequency enough that doesn’t irritate the crap out of me.

      This is what I ultimately did with my original high frequency, intrusive, reactive tinnitus. I had to come to a place where I just stopped running away from it. I started sitting in the quiet and just reading, etc I know that isn’t the typical advice, and on the worst days I still tried to mask occasionally (although it seemed to only make things worse). But ultimately I think your brain has to both heed the sound and not be scared of it anymore to start to learn to tune it out.

      Hi Forever hopeful. I just said this same thing to my husband tonight. The thought of living 40 more years with the 24/7 musical tinnitus I just developed seems unfathomable. But I also felt that way a decade ago with my original unmaskable high pitch tinnitus. I still have that, but it subsided considerably with time. So I am hanging on to hope that the same can happen for the musical tinnitus, although I understand it to be caused by issues in a different area of the brain/auditory system than regular tinnitus, so who knows. In any event, I am sorry you are going through this, and I wish you quieter days ahead.

      You know what they say, “if you are walking through hell, don’t stop”!

      Thanks. I am hopeful that I can get to a place where I can habituate to this. It’s hard because it does indeed fluctuate. There are times I almost feel normal again. But they don’t last.

      I am so sorry to hear about your musical tinnitus. I do hope that perhaps that will resolve. I have read that it can.
