      Hello. It's been about 4 days since this constant high pitched noise in my right ear, so I googled "noise in my ear" and learned about this god dammed word tinnitus, so here I am with you guys. I read some of the threads and really feel discouraged and to some extent suicidal! I can't believe such torture exists! I WANT IT TO STOP! Please let me go back to where I was 5 days ago

      Were you around loud noise, concerts loud club music, gun fire perhaps with no ear protection. Start any new meds or ear infections perhaps alot of wax buildup in your ears? First thing I would make an appt. with an ENT and get your ears checked out befor going into the panic mode....

      Welcome to Tinnitus Talk where you will get great round the clock support.
      Firstly I would see your doctor to get your ears checked for wax or infection.
      Try to keep sound on around you to help distract your mind from the sound and at night play natural sounds lower than your tinnitus through out the night to help your brain push your tinnitus to the back ground.

      Try to stay calm and relax as anxiety will ramp up your sound more.

      Tinnitus can come with lots of unwanted emotions and lack of sleep and low mood can take hold so it's important to try remain calm and keep busy and try not listen out for the sound and getting out in the fresh air will help.
      Hopefully your tinnitus will settle over a few days and keep away from loud music and using headphones and earphones as for some people will cause or aggravate tinnitus.

      In the meantime read the positive threads as their is help and will help you feel more positive you will get through this hard time and over time you can adjust as your brain builds up it's natural filter.... lots of love glynis

      So sorry on64. : (

      Yep. Same thing happened to me. But that was in 2002!! I had NO idea about tinnitus. Never even heard the word before. And I am okay.

      You are going to be okay though. Believe me. Give this some time and if possible discuss this with your primary doctor if possible like the others have suggested.

      Thanks for your support guys!
      I have had hard wax in my other ear a couple of months ago, and the doctor removed it. That ear is fine. He told me that I have accumulated a little wax in my right ear, the T one. As for the loud noises, it is true that the retarded human being that I am used loud headphones for up to 8 hours a day during the last 3 years or so. My fear is that now I'm paying the consequences of my actions and the interest is way too high and it's for life! I'm only 23

      Im also 23, had Tinnitus for 5 months now, loud, hasnt changed one bit, welcome to hell.

      I cant tell you if it will go, it either will or it wont.

      Id say if it lasts longer than 2 weeks its probably permanent.

      Hi on64,

      Welcome to the board.

      Stay away from headphones completely. Stay away from loud music and loud motors (leaf blowers, snow blowers, etc) and noise in general. Also, try to limit your stress and anxiety levels. Lastly, concentrate on getting a good's sleep - minimally 7 hours per night so you can wake up refreshed.

      You will be fine. Right now, you are experiencing anxiety as you are adjusting to a new, intrusive noise. Over time, you will learn to ignore it and your mind will disqualify it from you attention. As long as you stop fighting it, you will gradually habituate to it and you will perceive it less and less with time. Best of luck!

      You are all joking, I have had it for years, it is horrible, 5 years, and its getting worse. You can't sleep, the noise won't let you.

      Ive had t for 3 years this november.

      But, Im happy. Ill say it again. Life is good and Im happy.

      Of course it annoys me from time to time, but overall my t percept has improved.

      Instrumental to this improvement is my refusal to focus on the noise. My brain is learning not to listen to it. When i hear it, id say it only bothers me about 5% of the time now.

      Best advice i can give you is this: do not panic. You are going to be totally fine. It could even go away But even if it doesnt, your brain (youth on your side) is going to grow bored with your t.

      Go to the back to silence thread and watch the video. Stay connected here, and stay away from negativity.

      Trust me. You will be fine. X

      If there is no underlining medical condition that is causing your tinnitus? If it was caused by exposure to loud noise, and it has been getting worse over time, it could be that you are doing something to make this happen. Do you listen to music through headphones? Even if the volume is low it can make tinnitus worse for some people. Do you attend clubs or other places where loud music is played and not using noise reducing earplugs?

      I would get to a GP as soon as possible and get a course of prednisone steroids. Some people have found this to cure their Tinnitus but only within the first couple of weeks.

      Cause of Tinnitus:
      Not sure, maybe pinched nerve
      I started to take the prednisone yesterday. Today was my second dosage. I was prescribed 60mg evey morning with food. The only side effects I had were I kept waking up at night and mild pain in my knees. I've got 5 more days to go. As the Tinnitus goes it seems to be a little bit less notecinle sometimes. But then again, I went to the beach and it was louder. And then it would disappear completely, until I would start to think about it. In my other ear where I have sound distortion to certain sounds didn't improve yet. I'm not sure if this drug is supposed to help with it. But I'll keep taking them and see. And so you should. Just in case

      There is hope because it hasn't been very long and it could be temporary. I'd echo the other suggestions of Prednisone as that has been shown to work and I have seen it mentioned in seminars by audiologists.

      Other suggestions are to see your GP as soon as possible. If they are dismissive don't get hung up on it, try another doctor as soon as you can. Put yourself first and don't accept anything but the best treatment.

      Keep your circulation up, light exercise is good. Cochlea is very sensitive to low oxygen levels. Sometimes doctors prescribe a drug called Serc for this reason, it's a vasodilator.

      Do not sit alone in silence listening to the tinnitus. Don't let it settle in. Spend time with other people, distract yourself with good conversation and friends.

      Most supplements don't work but there are a few that have medical basis from my experience:
      B12 and B vitamins generally if you are deficient.
      Magnesium can be calming for some people

      Anxiety makes Tinnitus worse, easy for me to say, hard for you to do right now but try and relax. Take a bath in some Epsom Salts (it's Magnesium Sulphate). Put on some music or background noise.

      Check back in here anytime and let us know how you're getting on.

      Guys, I live in Romania and I wouldn't rely on the pathetic public health care system that we have over here. I will go to a private clinic but I'm not sure what kind of doctor should I search for. Ear doctor, brain doctor, both of them, or something else?

      I went to the doctor and she found some wax and sucked it all out. She told me that was probably the cause of the noise. Now at night time I can still hear the noise in my ear, and its the same noise that I heard yesterday.
      I noticed that the noise is not as bad as it was when I started noticing it. It might be because my brain is starting to get used to it. Unfortunately this visit to the doctor didn't help much. I asked her if it could be because of my prolonged exposure to loud noises by using over ear (not in ear) headphones, and she seemed pretty doubtful about this hypothesis. She told me to come back on Wednesday if the sounds persists tough.

      The wax removal will help a lot but as far as loud sounds and headphones only time will tell if it will go or not.
      I would keep well away from headphones and earphones and loud music to hope give your ears a chance and no further damage from them.
      Some people are ok with them on the lowest setting but as you do have problems from them try not to use them....lots of love glynis

      She sent me to an audiologist, where I believe I had a hearing test, but I don't know whether the audiologist was looking for my tinnitus, (I told her I hear very well and the reason I went to the doctor is because I have a ringing in my right ear). The test concluded that my hearing is very good, and when I returned today to my doctor (nose, throat ear doctor) she said that my ears are good and she strongly recommended me to consult a neurologist as soon as possible. Now I'm really confused of the cause of my tinnitus

      Noise Induced - Loud Headphones
      They do the hearing test to see if you've had any hearing loss due to loud noise exposure. If that wasn't the case, and you didn't get your tinnitus from a sudden loud noise or no other underlying cause aside from "listening to music with headphones for 3 years", there's a good chance it's just something temporary and unrelated to that.

      Mine was because I listened to music with headphones at an unbearable volume, and only for a couple minutes. That was enough. Never turn it all the way up. It's worse than going to a loud concert without earplugs.

      OK, now I really feel weird and happy at the same time. I woke up and it's gone. What was this whole experience? Did I really had something or because I panicked I made up imaginary noises? All I know is that I had this annoying noise and I quit using headphones for 3 weeks, and after the doctor said it's not ear related I calmed down and now I woke up without tinnitus.

      I got over excited and exaggerated. There's still noise in the ear. But it's so low and insignificant that I hear it only if I focus to search for it.
