tinitus
« on: Jan 07 2011, 05:21 PM »
Would like to find out the best ways to cope with tinitus.
I have always had tinitus due to the meds im taking but since had Menieres
disease I have it so loud 24/7 and really getting me down .
I have a music pillow to use at night and getting a sound box with natural sounds.
Just wanted to know what could help in the day,
the consultant has told me will sort me out with items when had scan results
back and then look at aids to help me ,like hearing aids and something called maskers.
How do you cope when the noises are louder than the tv and microwave and have bubbly feelings in my ears that lasts 1 to 2 mins each time in both ears.
Im so glad to have found this sight and not feel so alone with it all.
love Glynis xxx
look for the good in everyone and have a good life !!!

my tinitus is really doing my head in.
the presure and high pitch ringing wont stop.
its making me feel so sick and gives me a wuzzy head.
Its hard to locate sounds with the ringing and hearing loss and does make my
balance seem weird.
I wish i could just here silance for a little bit and night times are a pain.
not slept at all last night the noise is way to bad.
I know their is no cure for tinitus but im looking in to self help measures and I
have stopped salt intake and coffee.x
look for the good in everyone and have a good life !!!

I know this is an old post but just wanted to add to yours that tinnitis is doing me head in! 

I don't do caffeine at all, and have had this for many years but why and how can it get louder and louder!

Arghhhhhhhhhhhhhh
