Hi, I'm Jenny. My tinnitus started five days ago. I know I shouldn't complain because so many of you have suffered for years. I am 50 and have teenagers. My sound is a high pitch hum/buzz that is on the loud side. Seems to be mostly on the right side. I haven't been to a rock concert in 16 years and can't figure out why this came about. I'm not on many meds. Take ambien about 3 times a weeks to sleep. I can't concentrate, am depressed for my future, am having panic attacks and can't sleep. Got a whopping two hours last night. Even with a fan and pink noise I could still hear it and couldn't sleep from the anxiety. I know the first year is important if there is to be any hope in getting this to go away. Any advice on what to do, who to see, what tests to get done, treatments, anything? What works? Is there anybody on here who had tinnitus and recovered? That's what is so depressing...it seems like a life sentence for a very large majority of people. Any statistics about what percentage clears up and what don't? I would appreciate any advice to help me get rid of this or deal with the first year. Thanks.
