      Hi all,nice to find you!" I was about to start buying rubbish remedies off the net when I Googled forums and found this. In my heart of hearts I knew they would'nt work but now I don't need to go through the depressing process of getting my money back! My T started about a month ago, following some plumbing work our pipes made a humming noise, which made me listen out for a noise. The night before a big interview I could no longer tell if the noise was me or the pipes and the listening seems to have triggered or (made me aware of) T. I have damaged my hearing over the years by listening to loud music and working as a teacher, classes of young kids can get very noisy, and in a music venue. Mines not too bad, I only really notice it at night and I am trying hard not too give it too much attention. My heart goes out to anyone suffering badly, you must be strong to keep going. I knew straight away it was irreversible but i guess the time has come to see my Dr about it, although I hold little hope that it will help. Bless you all and Thanks for your support. Fran

      You figured out how not to get scammed by the innumerable tinnitus scams out there. Good :)

      Some people use distractions at night to fall asleep more easily. Long ago i used nature sounds. Now i need absolutely nothing. Sound damage is cumulative so you need to tone down the music volume a bit and protect you ears while in a too noisy ambiance. But not all the time, only around too loud noise.

      I would love to notice my tinnitus only at night ;)
