im 23 years old. My tinnitus started when I was about 15 and I accidentally pushed a cotton but too far into my left ear. I've had mild T in that ear since. 3 days ago that ear started to get really pitchy and is now keeping me awake. I normally sleep with a fan on and I tried turning it off and was surprised in a horrible way that I also had low level buzzing in both ears pressing in on my head and making me feel trapped. I don't know if this has been a slow build since Ive always slept with my fan on and hadn't noticed it before. I can't tell if the high pitched sound is coming from one or both ears. I saw my GP today and got a referral to see an ENT all they way down in May. Right now I'm just scared why it's flared up and I have high and low pitched noises intruding on me. It's scaring me and I'm finding it hard to stop crying and focus on something else.
