    Default Tinnitus scare

    For two nights this week I've not had much sleep due to a ringing sound in my head it was a pulsating high pitch nose and it was coming and going as I drifted in and out of sleep in the morning it was gone...I had read all about Tinnitus and how sufferers had to put up with it as there was no cure, and as i do have hearing problems and wear double hearing aids I thought that I had now succumbed to it ...and last night it was really bad in the end I had to get up and switch on the bedside light... And then I made a discovery... on a shelf built in the bed headboard I spotted Mrs T's hearing aid (She is deaf as well) and realised that it was still switched on and the sound the sound was coming from that She had been forgetting to switch it off at night ....So tonight I hope I can get some serious shut eye and get back to dreaming about bending mahogany again,

    If you can believe that moving images and sound, can fly through empty space across the universe and be seen and heard on a box in your living room ?.. then you can believe in anything.

    OMG. Make sure your wife doesn't find Mrs. T's hearing aid!!!

    I've developed Tinnitus recently. I found that I can replicate it using three frequencies from a tone generator online. 8,124hz + 4,052hz + 9,122hz. Now, here is the odd thing of it. If I listen to that tone generator apparently the tinnitus goes away for little while. It does come back. But, maybe I am onto something to help remedy it.

    I have double hearing aids and tinnitus. Sometimes it is worse than other times, though it is always there.

    My audiologist said there were things that made it worse: salt, stress, lack of sleep.

    I've read about that in the AARP magazine recently, apparently it is a remedy fo sorts. I'm fairly used to it after having it for years. I've recently cut back on salt, but I don't sleep well because of being overweight, which causes me mild sleep apnea. Not being diligent enough watching my diet, but between tinnitus and the reality that it could lead to diabetes, I have to work on it.

    When I started wearing hearing aids, my tinnitus lessened considerably. I told my audiologist that I had it, and she set up the HAs to dampen or cover it.

    I still hear the hissing noise, but, if my surroundings are moderately noisy, the tinnitus goes away.

    I've suffered from this for years. Just learned to live with it. The worse is at night when trying to go to sleep....if I don't have some kind of background noise I go crazy.
