Wouldn't be a bad idea to head to your optometrist if it's a longstanding problem. Sometimes can be related to elevated intracranial pressure. Simple dilation and/or visual field test can check for any problems on that end. All should be covered by AHC

I've just learned to live with it, exercise, sleep, relaxation, diet, nothing seems to help. Don't notice it as much when I'm concentrating/busy on something but once in a more quiet environment then I'll notice it's there. Sitting here on the couch, yupp, got that high pitched squeal in the middle of my head. It would be quite something to experiance complete silence but I suspect that'll never happen again. Sucks.

Do you guys get your ears cleaned out? My wife went to an ENT about something else and she had a monster ear wax clump pulled out. Ever since she's had way less headaches.

Damn speedog. Didn't know you had tinnitus. I'm never giving you a hard time ever again about anything.

Fuck tinnitus. I've had it for so many years most of the time I don't even notice it. But then when its quiet or I'm not really paying attention my ears ring nicely.

Not sure when it happened but I know it sucks.

Mine started after not being able to equalize my ears while scuba diving. Canceled the dive but still managed to screw my right ear up.



Was learning to live with it but then it just amped up in volume a couple months ago. Driving me nuts again. The hyperacusis sucks too.

Going for a check up with the ENT again in a couple weeks. I'm sure he wont have much to say other than to try to habituate.

I might try these guys

Damn ringing is going to drive me bonkers, seems worse than ever in the last couple of weeks. No changes to my routine or diet, a few stressful things off of my plate in recent months and yet the tinnitus is worse. I can't even remember what silence is like, gonna try some herbal stuff and massaging trigger points. Can't cut out alcohol because I'm lucky if I have one beer in a month, amount of sleep also not an issue. Will also cut out caffeine, not a big coffee drinker, maybe 1 or 2 cups a day plus the occasional Coke but maybe abstinence from both might help. Just would like a little break from the ringing.

I feel you bud. Started getting Tinnitus as a byproduct of visual snow. It's a real treat.

I find having some kind of background noise helps.

Sort of related...

I did have a mild case of tinnitus. I worked as an apprentice at an automotive shop and thought the exposure to air tools was the case. This was a few years ago, I was freaking out because I thought I was losing my hearing ( as a 22 year old ). I had my hearing checked out and everything checked out to be fine. They also did an allergy test on me as the docs said it could be related. At the time the doctors asked if I had any additional sensitivity in my mouth said it could be that my wisdom teeth were coming in and putting pressure on a some nerves which caused my tinnitus. After a few months, my wisdom teeth did not come in but I actually think that was the main cause for my tinnitus, and it did go away.

I developed it after a 2 month period of high stress and poor sleeping. The good thing is that your brain gets used to it after a while. Like mentioned white noise is the only thing that helps, I sleep with my bathroom fan on.

I've also noticed that it is much worse if I have a bad night of sleep or been really stressed. For stress, progressive muscle relaxation exercises seem to help a bit.
