      Hi Guys

      So I am really new to this forum and only really have tinnitus for the last 12 days or so. I do have some questions:

      1. Does anyone experience their ears burning at all? Not inside,but the actual ear lobes? Both of mine seem to be on fire, but not all the time. I do have fluid in one of my ears so could possibly be an infection? I am taking an anti-depressant for anxiety ( I have an underlying anxiety disorder ) and had these before with no side effects? My face seems to be burning slightly as well.....

      2. Regarding headphone - I have got some white noise for my Iphone, plus various other sounds. I have ' in ear ' headphones - would these be alright at very low volume and not put right in the ear?

      3. Headaches - Probably associated with the anxiety and panic but I seem to get them frequently, especially when the T is a little louder. Can anyone reccomend anything I can take to help? I do take Citalopram and Zopiclone... I also have Diazepam for when I need it.

      4. I seem to have a pattern - I wake up and the T is not that noticeable but through out the day I have it where it is quite loud... then starts to die down again at night. Any ideas?

      Any help is appreciated!

      Decrease of Hearing i presume.
      Headphones : at low volume cannot cause damages i think, try to use them in quiet environment.

      T is not a real sound. so when it’s quiet your brain cannot compare his level with another sound, so it seems low. But when there is noise and he is not masked, it seems louder. It’s not a sound with a level of decibel, you see?

      For the other problems, go see a doctor/ENT. Seems like i’s serious.
