      I'm sorry you are having such a difficult time! It is definitely a hard adjustment at first for many people.

      Are you struggling with both tinnitus and hyperacusis? What measures have you taken to help yourself thus far? Just looking to see what type of suggestions we can all make! And remember-- it gets better. Like you said, some days are better than others, but it will be okay. :)

      Cause of Tinnitus:
      The best advice I can give you is to do everything you can to keep calm and relaxed. Mood affects T and paying attention to it will only make it worse. As for how you keep calm, that's up to you, though I find that chewing bubblegum helps.

      Josh check letter to a tinnitus sufferer. You can Google it, dr.nagler wrote it and it's a great place to start. It's ok to feel bad about t and I would say most of us have been where you are. And it can get better buddy

      Josh, time can be a great healer especially you have the right approach. Cullen is right to point you to Dr. Nagler's Letter to a Tinnitus Sufferer. It points you to the right direction. What sort of treatments have you received? Do you have masking? What did the doctors say about your ears? If you can reveal more about your condition, members here can probably give you more definitive answers or suggestions. Take care and hang in there.
