      I didn't get much sleep either. Last few days my T has changed to a multiple tone buzzing.

      How do you usually manage sleeping ? I've been on promethazine for over a month and use masking.

      Hi Willson, far as sleep goes I use relaxing sound and music apps that I have downloaded onto my phone. I set it low so as to distract and give me something else to listen to it works pretty well.

      Ask the doctor if he thinks it would be okay for you to have a prescription for Xanax for your tough days. It is something you can't use everyday or it will be bad news because of tolerance and withdrawal symptoms. Xanax is highly rated on drugs.com for tinnitus. Some people are also helped by Valium which has a longer half life. It is one of those things that might be okay if you can deal with tinnitus most days but occasionally have a bad day. If your tinnitus bothers you most days it's best to look at hearing aids even if you have just a mild loss in hearing. If the specialist knows what he is doing he may be able to get rid of a lot of your perception of tinnitus. I have a mild loss and they help tremendously. With me they get rid of all the maskable tinnitus. I also have extended bandwidth hearing aids right now which go up to 12khz. I am trying them out but they are expensive since they are high end. They have maskers which can help too. Last time I went to Costco they had some hearing aids that went to 8khz but didn't have any with maskers but they had really good prices. Maybe they have maskers now because that was about 3 years ago. You can get some of their pricing on the web. I hope things get better.

      Tbx Jason for commenting. I know about Xanax and I'm trying to just cope without it. I do have hearing aids with sound generators and amplifiers and they have helped a lot with the anxiety that tends to be connected with tinnitus. I do have some good days and some bad days maybe in a week I might have three to four good days if I'm lucky.

      I had a hearing aid with a built in masker but now have a hearing aid with Bluetooth that allows me to listen to anything through my phone.
