Just when I think I'm able to manage the T for a while, it ups its game. Over the past 5 years the T has increased in volume (or perceived volume) and complexity every few months. I have managed to adapt each time (with difficulty) but nowadays it is just insane. So noisy with so many high pitched frequencies. What I don't understand is that it increases during times when I am managing fine and just getting on with things. The tinnitus seems to shout at me saying "Hey, think you have habituated do you? I'm still here, listen to this new high pitched torturous sound, you loser." Yes, I somehow still have a sense of homour. Wish I knew why it is getting worse and how bad it can get before habituation becomes nigh impossible. No sleep last night and feel rubbish today. Why is it when I am not focussed on it or feeling anxious about it, it still gets worse? Anyone else have the same experience? Perhaps something neurological going on where the tinnitus related connections are getting stronger with time no matter what or possibly medication related? I take a very small amount of mirtazapine and sometimes a small amount of zopiclone to get some sleep which is understandable, considering there is an electrical storm continually brewing inside my head.
