I have tinnitus mainly in my right ear which is a high pitched violin two tone sound and it's hideous and cause me to wince in silence or when I hear it. I noticed the t in my left ear making electrical noises like a saw and last night started with a hissing. I'm so upset because I've not slept and had to go work. I'm scared I'll end up losing my job because I'm a wreck. I can't use masking at night because it irritates me more than the tinnitus. The noise of birds or music is too much - it would keep me awake. I'm lay here now listening to the din of this violin sound constantly and I want to tear my hair out. Doctor sending me for MRI and I'm scared of the machine being noisy and making my t worse and worried what they'll find. Why am I being sent for a scan? In terrified because I don't know why.
