      If you have an infection, or if your T is from noise damage, then perhaps you should get some prednisone treatment from your doctor asap. In the mean time you should get masking going asap so you won't freak out too much. If you haven't done so, here are some suggestions:

      1) Mask at bed time so you can sleep better. Find whatever sounds/music that are soothing to you. You can use a sound machine or sound pillow for this, or a computer with speakers.

      2) If you need masking on the go, try load an ipod with nature sounds or music using itune, or use smart phone. You can also order some nature sounds via ‘itune’ to play on your PC.

      3) If you have computer and speakers, you can try these excellent masking sounds:

      TT's audio player:

      or download free sound generator ‘aire freshener’:

      or make your own rain sound:

      or search youtube with words like 'tinnitus masking sounds', 'white noise', 'rain sound' etc.
