      Howdy-

      The subject line - Yes that's how I knew I had hearing loss and the start of tinnitus. I'm male, 46 years young and just recently decided to visit the doc. The forcing factor to get me to the doc was the start of my tinnitus in November 2015. ENT said my ears were "normal" (no wax build up - and clean) but requested a hearing test. Audiologist verified my hearing loss, but not one had a suggestion on how to get rid of this loud ringing in my ears besides saying "you'll learn to deal/live with it." Everyone seems to say that and it's quite disheartening.

      I finally found a specialist that wanted to start me on sound therapy via hearing aides. I have yet to start therapy and wanted to hear what others thought about this therapy. My tinnitus is extremely loud and intense for weeks and then just goes away. I thought I established a pattern - good night of restful sleep, I'm good. But that was blown away just this past Monday. Sitting at the dinner table, it started out of the blue and is going strong as a type this.

      Thanks for letting become a member. Hope we can help each other.
      Jeff

      Hi Jeff,
      A warm welcome to Tinnitus Talk.
      Your hearing aids will help take the edge off your tinnitus when you start your treatment.
      You might adapt well to them straight away or build up the time using them over a few days. ..lots of love glynis

      Welcome to the forum. Hearing aids may help reduce the volume of T for some people but it doesn't help everyone, including myself. One good thing is that you can try it before committing to buy. Have you tried masking your T? Generally, T sounds loudest during the start but after some time, the ears settle down and T volume may subside except for the extreme cases. Try to read up the success stories to learn some insights on getting better. I find them very comforting during my initial days. The more comforting I was, the less stressful I became and that paved the way for the brain to learn to habituate to the ringing. Take good care. God bless.

      Thanks for warm welcome and replies. My pride may be getting in my way of wearing hearing aides but relief would be great. Thanks again.

      Hi there im waiting in my appt for the hearing aids..i had one un each ear fitted 25years ago when they were big brown and ugly.but i must say,the moment i turned them on my ringing completley stoped..they play a low sound white noise that your brain listens to so it stops focusing on the ringing.i found them very good and releved my ringing instantly.after a few months of waring them on and off i was able to function without them and hardly ever notised my ringing anymore..cant wait to get them as they are small and descrete nowdays..good luck
