Hello forum, My name is Richard. 40 year old male who just developed Tinnitus out of nowhere 3 weeks ago. Not brought on by noise-trauma or anything like that. I am already at a loss on how to cope with this. ENT has already cleared me. Hearing test were fine. Nothing physical obvious on exams. I have high blood pressure and Anxiety and sleep apnea. In 3 weeks I have started just about every home remedy I have read about. I am ready to run a pool cue through my head. Is this a life sentence? Is there any hope? Wishing you all peace. I believe John Lennon must have been singing about Tinnitus when he said, "You say I'm putting you on but it's no joke; it's doing me harm. You know I can't sleep; I can't stop my brain. You know it's 3 weeks...IM GOING INSANE!!! You know I'd give you everything I've got for a little peace of mind!"
