Hello, my name is Sunny and I am a tinnitus sufferer and "sufferer" is definitely the correct term. I can't put my finger on the exact moment it started but almost three years ago I was sleeping in a very quiet place and suddenly noticed that it's not that quiet, not for me anyway and it has been going on constantly since. It's hard to describe what it sounds like as it's not ringing. It's more like a muted high pitch sound, like there is one cricket in my head that makes one solid continuous chirp or like an electronic sound that a radio makes when there is no transmission. Like a "swooshing" sound. This is the best I can think of to describe but it's still not exactly what it sounds like. All I can say is that it is driving me mad. I always need to to have a radio of a television switched on to help aliviate the noise in my head. one thing I would like to share with other fellow sufferers is that I am using something called " sleepphones" which I wear to bed every night, it's headphones designed especially for sleeping. I play relaxing sounds, meditation , sleep inducing hypnosis or anything that helps sleeping . It blocks the tinnitus and helps quite a bit . I would love to be able to talk to an expert and try and solve the issue. I know it is not in your ears but to do with a signal from the brain into the ear canal. I would love to know if anyone has ever been cured. Thanks for "listening" and wishing you a quiet day.
