I'm at the very early stages of getting to grips with my Tinnitus but one thing that really p****s me off about it is how unpredictable it is! It can be ok for a few days, then really intrusive but after doing some meditation and mindfulness exercises yesterday was great, and I even zoned out so much when I woke up in the night that I was able to consign my hissing to the background to the extent it wasn't noticeable....how happy was I! Hey, guess what, my chirping crickets are back when I woke up...pah! Unfortunately my crickets seem to resonate and actually get louder when I watch TV or radio, or am in a crowd of people. Ok, I've got a flu bug and temperature at the moment but no real congestion, so that could be behind it. How come I can be pretty much clear for one day and bad the next?
I guess we are all different but I'm finding meditation and mindfulness fairly helpful. (Free Headspace app on iTunes is worth downloading). Got audiology appointment later this week which hopefully will help straighten me out for Xmas.
