      Hello everyone, I am new to the forum, I have not been on a forum before and it is lovely to see so much support out there, although I wish no one had to suffer with tinnitus in the first place! I wondered if I could ask a question please? I have had mild tinnitus since being a child (eustachian tube dysfunction) which never bothered me too much. However in June 2013 a whole load of new tones started due to stress I believe and an MRI scan although of course I cannot prove that! I have very slight hearing loss in the lower tones, possible otosclerosis but not sure. Anyhow, after a roller coaster of a ride to eventual habituation, in the last week (possibly due to stress again!) I have noticed a sound which I have actually had before but seems to be sticking around too much for my liking. It is two tone, very high pitched, that pings then dies down to a slightly lower tone and these 'pings' can be longer in length and variable, very hard to ignore, seems to die down completely at night and start to wake up with me in the morning. (I am sorry I am not very good at explaining, I just wanted to give as much detail as possible, all I can definitely tell you is it is very hard to ignore due to its two tone nature!!).

      I wondered if anyone had come across this before and if it could be a spike due to stress? I am hoping this particular noise doesn't set up camp as it were, it's always been the worst one!

      Thank you so much for any responses and help it is very much appreciated.

      Amyx

      Here's some advice from someone who had T for 40 years and finally got rid of it...
      Stop describing and responding to your T. It'll make it worse.
      Respond to your FEELINGS about T. Feelings can be managed, T cannot.
      Please try this...

      Thank you very much for your message and advice, I am so pleased for you will apply your advice. Your approach makes a lot of sense to me, I have recently moved to a foreign country with not much to occupy my time therefore I see a pattern! Wishing you all the best and thank u again, Amy
