So I've been dealing with this for almost a year now. Intensity does vary, but never goes away. At best it's some machine in a distance. I think of it as someone vacuuming in my brain. At its worst is a high pitch tea pot kettle that is really hard to drown out, so I'll turn the tv on as loud as I can. I worked at the same place for three years with no problems and then it was bought out and problems started a few months after, but with other crazy symptoms. Then went to this insanity. I had to take a medical leave it was so bad, and that's just as depressing as it can get. So I tried to go back to work just to try it out and i didn't last an hour. It wasn't just ear piercing ringing but also pressure as if I stayed any longer something was going to explode and it's been three days since I tried to go back and still feel messed up. I literally feel like someone has messed with my brain. My eyes feel different like puffy.. Now they've(the new owners) have done upgrading on the WiFi and changed all computers and it is next to a LEAD wall since I work in X-ray my desk is up against the lead wall and the wall on the other side where i can stretch my arms to must be maybe three feet away. Now I'm sure for people with T as I've seen written, I'm assuming that's how they refer to Tinnitus here experience in rooms especially with no other noise for me anyhow feels like the ear ringing is bouncing off the walls. I can't imagine living like this,I have t tried to deal with this the best I know how,but this is just ridiculous at the same time my ears have also become sensitive to unexpected loud noises. How can anyone live like this.
