      hi there

      my name is ian and my T in both ears was caused by industrial noise years ago.
      my T does get very bad at night and I have to go to sleep with the tv on.
      I also have a machine that I got free from the NHS which gives sound of water or rain or birds etc which helps

      I recently found ,through my hobby of computer music, that if I composed music with my headphones on (instead of monitors ) my T seemed to disappear for a while.
      I am not aware if this is because I am more relaxed after playing around with my hobby or if it is because I am listening to music I am creating ( at a sensible level of course )

      this by no means is a complete cure but it does seem to help me, and if it helps just one other person that would be something

      so listen to some music comfortably and see if it temporarily helps like it does for me fingers crossed

      down with this cursed buzzin lol

      Welcome to the forum. It seems that some people can get temporary relief from T by subjecting the ears to sounds matching the frequency of the T, and the headphone kind of jam the T with the matching sounds. This phenomenon is called 'Residual Inhibition'. You can google it to learn more about it. Take care. God bless.
