I am making great progress in dealing and accepting the anxiety and fear associated with tinnitus. I am using maily supplements, exercise and masking sounds. The only drug I am using is trazadone 50mgs at bedtime. It really seems to give me about 5-6 hr a night sleep. I swim about 1 mile a day and walk. When things really get bad . As I get more accepting and habituated to the pulsating tinnitus left ear, I am feeling a great loss of the normal hearing and silence I had enjoyed most of my life. I am exeriecing waves of grief rolling through my being, overwhelming me. I don't know if anyone wants to share their grief loss experience with tinnitus. But right now I am experiencing this Gief and I seem to deal with it better by expressing it and put one foot in front of the other and move forwards. Thanks for this website. I don't feell iam fighting this battle alone.
