Anyone who has tinnitus knows how irritating the constant noise in the ears can be, whether it's a ringing, roaring, pulsing, or another sound. It's truly beyond obnoxious!
I've had it for over ten years. I use to be able to almost ignore it but not anymore. With the continued hearing loss in both ears its even more noticeable. The higher I turn the sound volume, or the later in the day, the worse the noise is. And it's a very high pitch ringing. And when I shut down for the night and go to bed its worse.
I try to avoid medication triggers I know that cause them, like too much tylenol or cold/allergy meds. I also avoid headphones or earbuds, and use speaker phone when I can. My hearing has deteriorated to the level of hearing aids. She said I'm at the optional use mark, depending on whether I think they'd help very much or not. With the tinnitus, and my problem hearing with background noises going on, I'd say they're likely not going to help.
If anyone has suggestions to decrease the ringing I'd love to hear them. Thanks! 🙏🌼
