      When my T spiked back in mid January I thought it would never get better. My first time around with T back in 2010 was more than I thought I could handle. I was depressed.. lost 5 lbs from not eating and even wanted to die. It was that horrible and my anxiety was through the roof. My PC put me on Amitriptyline which really helped with getting me through the nightmare of T and helping me sleep. Well life went on and eventually I really didn't notice the T... until this past January when I was hit with a serious upper respiratory virus that settled in my ears... then the spike!!! Ringing.. surround sound.. High pitch tea kettle blasting all around my ears and head. I think I cried for 2 weeks straight ...finally I went back on the Amitriptyline... found this site.. received support... Continue praying to my God who never gives me more than I can handle. Today I rejoice as the noise has settled in the back of my head.. almost muffled.. for the most part I don't even notice it.. unless I sit and think about it.. or it is really quiet.

      For those who are just starting this journey with T and you don't think you are gonna make it.. please know that it will get better. Don't hesitate to message me for support. I have been where you are and will probably be there again.. as T has a mind of it's own. But through the grace of God ..T does not have me.. I have T.. And-my-soul-shall-be-joyful.jpg and my life is hid in Christ and He alone is my Rock and Salvation! He gives me the grace to get through my days with T... and joy sure does come in the morning!!!

      My name is mike I have had tinnitus since 2012. I did really well with it for the past year however the noise in my right ear has changed and it is causing major anxiety,,, I'm afraid I won't be able to handle it and the anxiety and tinnitus are piggy backing each other

      Mike.. Carlos is right.. you need to get on some meds to help with the anxiety. Sleep is very important. If you have a cold or allergies.. this can cause a spike in T also. Call your doctor and see if you can get some kind of meds for your anxiety.
