Last month one of my tinnitus symptoms was spiked pretty bad so to sleep I had I used ear buds earphones for masking as the normal masking was not working well, I kept them all night but I was sure to put it at a low volume. Unfortunately this seems to have made my tinnitus considerably worse for the past few weeks now I have a gotten a new tone which is pretty loud and it definitely was not like that before. I did not think I was doing anything wrong since some sounds therapies require you to wear noise generators all the time. Does anybody mask their tinnitus with earphones this way? This is horrible I don't know what I am supposed to do now.
