Having this noise for 7 days now and I thing I will go crazy .Went to see the ENT yesterday hopping that maybe fluid on left ear was causing the noise no luck on that.He said I have some hearing loss on my left side but he said its probably from stress and since I had pneumonia in January following a flu and probably a cold about 10 days ago I have been stressed enough .I have to mention that I haven't needed any doctors help for the past 10 years at list. I think my life its over and I wont be able to enjoy anything anymore.I can tolerate any pain but I never thought of this which is worse than anything .I am glade to hear that so many in this forum are able to manage it and I wish I had the faith to believe that I can manage it too someday.Sleep has been terrible 3-4 hours sleep at night time.I just miss that quiet peace more than anything now. I wish luck to anybody to this forum managing their tinnitus !! GOD HELP US !!
