      Tinnitus Since:
      Cause of Tinnitus:
      I'm new to this site, as I'm new to Tinnitus and trying to figure it out. It started a couple of months ago and isn't going away. It usually starts out mild each morning, but gets worse throughout the day, especially when I have to deal with people that irritate me. I've joked about it just being a natural defense mechanism of my body to tune people out ;-) It's really hard to concentrate when everything is masked with a high pitched ringing.

      Sorry to see you here but you're very welcome. I'm also finding it exceedingly difficult to focus...

      Hello and welcome!
      Tinnitus does get worse when we are tired and stressed out (and irritating people
      are stressful). I assume that the people who irritate you have something to do with your job, so maybe your days off are better? Glad to see that you maintain a sense of humor.
