Hi everyone, Here is my story with tinnitus. I first heard a high pitch tone in my ear back in November 2011. After it didn't stop for a few days went to an ENT who diagnosed tinnitus. First few months were hard but eventually I was able to keep my t in the background. Until now. Last week I noticed that my t changed when I heard certain external sounds like my heating unit or washing machine. This am i even heard a weird whistling sound while cars were driving down the road. My right ear is now louder making it harder to mask or sleep. I went to another ENT and had a hearing test. I have some conductive hearing loss in both ears and a slight noise induced loss in my left ear (which I assume was from listening to headphones too loud). I have a lot of allergies and sinus issue and trying to clear that up first. I also have a lot of anxiety issues (all my life) that seemed to have worsen now that my T has changed. I'm terrified that my T will soon respond to all external sounds and I will never hear normally again. I'm going to see a therapist next week and hopefully some medication will help with the anxiety. It's been very stressful the last week especially since I have twin 20 month old girls to care for. I'm trying not to let T rule my life but it is hard and I don't know what other options I have.
