Howdy, I reside in the northwestern part of Texas. In late March 2014, I awoke with 'ringing / clicking' sounds in my left ear. After 4 days of Dubrox oil to soften excessive ear wax in left ear, ENT suctioned / removed softened wax - voila - no more such sounds. Then on May 15, 2014, the following day after surgical removal of a sebaceous cyst from the back of my neck, intrusive T began being perceived in both ears, but actually is inside head noise. Often greater perception from left ear though. I've been examined by an ENT, two audiologists, and a neurologist [waiting on MRI scan report]. Currently, involved directly with a doctor of audiology who's working with me via TRT, a clinical psychologist [that has habituated to T] who's working with me using CBT / Mindfulness Meditation via Skype, a local psychiatrist, and another local clinical psychologist for anxiety issues initiated by T, and another local neurologist who specializes in sleep disorders, i.e., my insomnia. I'm 71 with several health issues and have discovered that many potential seeming beneficial meds / supplements have various interactions with meds that I already am taking. Right now, T seems to have changed almost every facet of my life and not in positive ways. Being problem presently is sleep. Most nights too little, some not at all. Sleep doc prescribed 1mg klonopin for night prior to bedtime. He seems to imply little chance of addiction with long term use, but I'm quite fearful of addiction. Pharmacist says otherwise and I note that many members here advise against using klonopin for sleep. Since finding this forum, I believed I've been exposed to much more beneficial information than I might have found elsewhere and more timely as well.
