Hello. So this morning around 2 pm I woke up with a high pitched ringing in my ears almost like the high pitch sound the old TV's used to make. Throughout the day at times I thought it was gone because music, the shower and outdoors drowned it out. I am now lying in bed trying to nap and I can't seem to fall asleep. I'm so nervous and my anxiety is through the roof. I went to a doctor who said he can hear that I have a sinus infection some upper respiratory bug. He gave me a Z-Pack and said I should be fine and that the ringing will go away soon. I'm going crazy I can't take this I feel like I'd rather be deaf then have this obnoxious sound in my ears. Please tell me it's not going to take months or years or never go away. I can barely eat and I'm depressed now and just want to die. This is awful. It sounds like a straight ring 24/7. Sometimes it gets jumpy sounding like the ringing pauses for a second and continues. I'm not sure how to describe it. Please please tell me it will be okay I feel like it's giving me a headache. It's not loud until I try to sleep. Honestly sometimes I have to really listen for it but it seems to be there. It was so random I just happen to wake up and hear it this afternoon.
