      Hi all

      Right I've had T since I was 15 just over 20yrs now a low hiss, anyways I think it was bought on by a very loud Take That concert back in 94. I had a few dodgy years but coped. I'm a worrier/very anxious person at the next of times and about 3yrs ago had a very bad episode of about 8mths where any sound would make my head want to explode, I was literally going crazy. To cut a long story short, I was out on anti depressants which have helped a great deal and also saw an amazing audiologist locally who was an angel in disguise.

      So three years later I have a new sound, almost like a pop, electrical notice every few mins, not continuous which I've had now two weeks. For week 1 I was a mess, week two I'm coping but also concerned I'm stuck with the intermittent noise.

      I can't see my audiologist until mid June and I away on holiday next week. My anti d review is done at the doctors and I'll trying to be positive and believe this is a blip it will go, but also thinking is two weeks long time to hear this. Any thoughts people on the flare up?

      It can be permanent. Two weeks is not that long I say that. If you keep hearing it 6 months from now then you can consider it permanent.

      Try taking NAC, Ginkgo, Magnesium and eat healthy, exercise a lot, sleep much.

      Hi thanks for the reply, I don't take any form of supplement. To be honest I think it's just getting my head around this new noise, plus maybe not read everything on websites. Permanent is not a good word for me. Let's go for temporary

      You've dealt with T for so many years, I think you'll get around this latest intrusion.

      Good luck and God bless mate!
