      You need to stay calm,
      Have a long soak in the bath and speak with your doctor tomorrow to see what medication you can try.
      Talking therapy helps too so see if you can be referred.
      Samaritans or MIND can help too...
      keep posting for support too...lots of love glynis

      I think we all know the feeling, on some level, of wanting to give up. Don't go there yet, it's still early for you and I'll bet that better days are ahead, even if it might not seem that way right now.

      Keep in mind that medication affects different bodies in different ways. Just talk to your doctor about what might be best for you and keep in touch with them while you're on it. I definitely had the help of medication while I was in the early months to first year. I don't know how I would have coped without it, now I don't need anything. Hang in there and don't be afraid to seek the help that you need, better days are more likely than not to come in time.

      Hang in there and let us know how it goes!

      Go for a run or some other form of exercise, if I don't do this daily I feel like I'm going to loose it. Too much relaxing, or trying to relax puts me on the edge.

      I'm with @Telis go outside, and do something simple.

      Being outdoors seems to help me with all the external sensations.
      I'd like to think my T is internal, where my life is external. Get your life in the external world.
      If we could only push the T back into our subconscious, where it was before.

      (And seeing your GP is a Great! - idea, get some medication to help)

      Many people here seem to have had a really tough time during the first months of tinnitus and it is very scary for folks early on. People cope in different ways and there are many good suggestions in this thread. I have a negative reaction to sound so I chose reading novels in a quiet room to cope. Others seem to dislike being in quiet rooms. You will find your best coping mechanisms based on your needs. We are here for you.
