A few weeks ago after a period of stress I developed a high pitched tone/ hiss which is all consuming.
I know this is Tinnitus even though it originates mainly from my head I am filled with fear and anxiety as it is with me 24/7.
I dread the approach of bedtime as nights really are a nightmare there is a constant knot in my stomach as I think of the long night ahead and the panic attacks I will suffer as my wife sleeps beside me. I have speaker under my pillow but nothing masks this tone/hiss that penetrates everything I try to use.
Has anybody else had T that seems unmaskable and is it my imagination or is it increased as I try soothing sounds.
Can you advise me in my pursuit of sleep as II feel I could face each day a lot better with rest.
I am recently retired so I try to busy myself best I can but this high pitch is constant.
I badly need some respite.
