      I have a beep happening. And just last night I got a new one. Sounds so much like an Amber Alert. Sometimes it continuous. And sometimes it like an actual where it rings, stops, rings, stop etc. I'm really scared. I'm scared that I will continue to develop new tones and sounds that I won't be able to habituate at all! :( I'm one month in.

      The first months are the worst months. Ride the storm and do anything you can to distract yourself. Try as best you can to not monitor the tinnitus, as in "OMG, it's loud today!" "OMG, what's that new sound?!"

      If you can't stop the anxiety, see a doctor. Search the TT forums to see what other people are taking.

      FWIW, when tinnitus first hit me, I had the most ungodly assortment of sounds you could imagine, and every week or so the noise would change. It finally settled into a cicada type of noise with a tea kettle whistle either in the background or foreground, depending on what my brain decides to do. I think the fact that your T noise starts and stops is a good sign, especially since it's so new. It may very well fade away.

      I'm several years in and I hear roughly a half dozen noises total; sometimes two at once, one ear doing its thing and the other sounding off with a different noise. Sometimes my left ear is totally silent. I hope yours is short term and goes away soon, but if not, yes - habituation is possible.

      I hope. It's reading things like this that make me joyful. You've brought tears sir. Really. Thank you. How are you doing? Is your tinnitus still impacted your life negatively? Are you habituated?

      Yes you can. Don't worry. Most people seem to have more than one sound going on. I have a Geiger counter, a hiss and a whistle.

      Oh ya, a great life.
      This forum is great - I learned a method of dealing with T and I call it "Back To Silence." Look it up here.
      After 40 years of T, I only hear it once every couple weeks.

      I have multiple tones that have got a whole lot louder recently. I have habituated in the past but right now feel terrible. Feel finally beaten by it. Feeling ultimate low today. Like an electrical storm in my ears, unmaskable. Trying to hang in there.

      Ya it is.
      But it's a picture of me when I was little and my dad is standing next to me playing an accordion. The beginnings of my tinnitus I suppose. Loud music.

      @I who love music, Whoa! That blows my mind man. Little did you know, what the future held for you. Bad Karma indeed.
