      Ear infection
      The last setting masking thing I tried with the hearing aids were like this waves sound. I could still get the high pitch in there if I'm in my home.

      I have now the waves and some chimes and I don't notice the tinnitus at all (for a few hours so crossing fingers).

      Here is the deal... I know that totally masking it makes habituation slower.

      Should I do this or suffer for a few more months???

      I say use it for a bit and then when you calm down, the fight or flight emotions stop for a while, then take the maskers off and go without them and when you get upset just know in the back of your mind, if it gets to be too much, you can turn on the maskers so that hopefully will keep the fight or flight feeling at bay or at least lower. Another thing to do is you can talk with a hearing aid specialist that is familiar with tinnitus and see if he can minipulate the programming on them to reduce the ringing. Just make sure sounds are never amplified above a level that could harm your ears.

      Did you ever habituate? I never have. I'd try any aid that will help
