      Hi everyone,

      My first post. I've had tinnitus since 1961. The following are the 12 bells of Christmas that I hear throughout the year in both ears. Some are at different times - not all at once:

      1. always ringing; gets louder after eating something sugary or vinegar in salad dressing.
      2. whishing
      3 clicking
      4. sometimes echos of certain sounds
      5. sounds like the wind
      6. siren like noise - really high pitch noise (without eating something sugary/vinegary)

      So, I am never alone - these bells are always with me, even at Christmas.
      I will write more later; right now I am really enjoying this website and really knowing I am not alone.

      I sign as DrPat - I am a psychotherapist and really like reading your info because you are helping me.

      Merry Christmas,

      Dr Pat

      Hi Natalie and Karen.
      Merry Christmas and Happy New Years.
      Well, we have one thing going for us that others do not:
      We can hear more bells than they can - especially during the holidays.
      However, high pitched bells drive me crazy; so do violins, and hand bells.

      Take care,
