I've had tinnitus for over the past 18 months in my left ear and recently i have had a spike in my left ear with my right ear beginning to show some ringing, well i think - hard to tell over how loud the left is. It has gotten so bad, i am near freaking out. I am not sure I can cope with this excessive ringing forever, literally driving me insane. When its ringing, I can't help but focus on it and when i stop paying attention to it I automatically think "wow I'm not noticing it" then of course it comes back. Its beginning to affect my ability to do my job since I already work on a loud trading floor. I am having a hard time seperating the voice of the person I am talking to from the ringing and chaos of background noise. I work out 3-5 days a week, have a fan at night, TV on all day. What have some of you done to cope with knowing this is your new standard of living? All i can think of is 70 more years to go dealing with this crap. Thanks in advance.
