I've only ever had tinnitus when I've had severe ear infections in the past, but it's alway disappeared with the infection. This time around the infection was really bad & as a result the tinnitus won't go away! And, as many report, it's way worse at night because it's so quiet, the tinnitus gets louder. It's been 2 months & though it's more stable (the constant ringing I mean), I still can't hear out of that ear. So far I've tried several noises/sounds for sleeping & it's always a different one that works each night, but brown noise & constant rainfall are 2 of my staples.
I read that ingesting salt makes it worse , yet some sites say you need salt. I even tried a Himalayan Salt lamp, but it seemed worse that night. Any thoughts?
