      Tinnitus Since:
      I know that Tinnitus is ringing, buzzing, clicking in the ear however everyone seems to have a slightly different symptom. I am curious as to all the symptoms other people have.

      For example I have a ringing in my ear constantly that sometimes seems to fade in the background and sometimes it is very loud and disrupting. However, I also find that there are a lot of times that many sounds affect me kind of like a "nails scraping on chalkboard" affect which I havn't heard or read about someone with Tinnitus reporting.

      Watch certain TV changes for example when the actors are emphasizing the "s"'s in their words get really annoying. Anyone want to share all their symptoms or if they have this same type of symptom with the chalkboard affect I would be really interested in hearing about.

      07/26/1992...habituated after 2 years; 11/04/11 new outbreak

      here is a link to a web page belonging to the ATA (american tinitus association)

      you will find 8 sound tracks.... examples of some of the more common tinnitus "sounds" reported by patients

      i can assure you there are many many more


      make sure your computer volume is turned way down at the beginning of each track

      best wishes
