      Tinnitus Since:
      I hear a low humming when my house is quiet which I thought was an electric motor noise from neighbours. I use an Android frequency generator app and a Bose speaker to generate a background noise of about 52-56 hertz at a low level which I find masks the tinnitus. I also have an app which generates background noises like rain or surf which also helps.

      Hope you figure out what it was. Your ears obviously don't like it ( though you may want to disagree with them ) Ears don't lie...... ( so to speak....
