      Cause of Tinnitus:
      ? probably hearing loss.
      What do you guys do when your T wakes you up early in the morning? At first, I could take a klonopin and sleep through the night but pills aren't working anymore.

      I used to put nature sounds as masking to keep calm, then I counted numbers or do mental math to distract and bore the mind with repetitions until it gave up and turned sleepy. I used to do that to stop the mind from anxiety build-up and it worked well.

      I usually wake up at this time too! My bed is next to my window and I usually like to open my window and listening to the early morning bird song and the sounds of the world waking up! That always seems to do the trick for me! If not listening to some calming sounds or putting a DVD on quietly

      I try to focus on something else other than my T. @DebS actually gave me a good idea (I think it was her anyway, sorry if it was someone else) about trying to remember all the people in TV shows or movies. If you try doing this for shows such as Once Upon a Time, Game of Thrones, or the Hunger Games, then it keeps you preoccupied. I have found that even without masking I can ignore my T provided my mind is distracted. Masking helps though, so if you are struggling it does the trick.

      Hope you sleep well.

      And if the TV/Movie game doesn't get you back to sleep, a shot of NyQuil sometimes helps!
