Is it possible for someone to hear their tinnitus in the brain instead of ears?
Yes. I think I know what you're saying.
I hear the electric type sound in head not sure if it's related to tinnitus or my imagination . And I hear mild pictch sound in my left ear i think I can cope with it but that electric sound in head is annoying especially at night or when I am too focused
Yeah, I have tinnitus screaming in my brain and in my ears.
yep, brain T here ..its the worst ...regular T is my good days.
Yep 24/7 very high pitched brain T here.
I keep wondering what the pathological difference is between brain T and ear T as they have a very different feel.
It is more to the left side of my brain, though.
Just curious how long it will take to get used this awful sound ? It's been a month and I am no way near
I don't know. It's been 8 months for me and it still bothers me a lot. One big factor I think is how easily it is to mask. Do you only hear it inside, can you mask it with cricket noises etc., or do you hear it everywhere? Also, does it react to other sounds like watching TV or listening to music?
thats where I hear it.
No I can only hear it when i am going to bed or In a silent room may be I can hear it outside the house if I pay attention to it yes it's maskable with music and I don't hear it over tv
It's very common.
As with some others, I have both. It is important to remember that no-one really hears with their ears. The ears are just transducers that take sound pressure waves and turn them into electrical signals for the brain to interpret. As such, you can have tinnitus when there is absolutely nothing wrong with your ears. A lot of people, including some ENTs don't seem to grasp this concept - I know first hand, as I had to explain this to a consultant ENT (yes, I am serious!!!).
Based on how quiet it is for you, you should adapt quickly and it may well vanish completely in time.
Do look after your hearing though. If you're raising your voice to be heard, it is too loud.
Thank you Owen I am doing my best not to focus on it .
How do you do it Telis I don't understand!
You must be very strong!
Yeah I'm very strong, always have been, but I'm not strong enough for a lifetime of this hell. I'm worn out already after 3 years, I feel done.
