Hello all, I thought I would introduce myself. I have been a Tinnitus sufferer since about 2009. I remember when it started. We were away seeing my son who had just completed basic training with the Army. I remember that evening thinking that it sounded like I'd been to a very loud rock concert because my ears were ringing. I thought it would go away by morning. It did not. My first year was devastating to me. I remember breaking down in tears when my audiologist told me I was stuck with Tinnitus. (my words, not his). I didn't know what to do and I didn't know how I could possibly cope with it. It turns out, I have coped and continued to live pretty well. I've tried all sorts of sound masking items and various 'natural' supplements but none of them have changed the status of my Tinnitus. Maybe one day there will be a cure for this incessant thing.
