Tinnitus Exocet Missile



The Exocet is a missile that can strike it's target without warning. Comes out of the blue to destroy the target. A bit like my T yesterday. No alcohol, no work, slept well, no spicy food, no unexpected loud noises but had a day from hell. The noise and intensity was horrendous. Was so glad when it came to bedtime and I could take a chill-pill and sleep.

Does anyone else out there experience these Exocet days without any reason?

Yes every bloody day!!!

Funny old thing this life business. Hope that you get some peace at sometime.


You too!!

Yes .... usually it happens the day after I've had a stressful situation - like my brain wants to let me know that I need to stop and wait it out. The only thing to do is to relax.... knowing it will get better - at some point. It has been known to take two to three weeks to calm down ..... but I try and stay positive. 😩x

Yes Ade, it happens to me. I hate tinnitus being my boss. Angela xx

Having been on the wrong end of the real thing in life at least "T" is not that bad.

Yes unfortunately a real one, in 1982 during the Falklands conflict

Hi London20, I would think that many who have served our country would have hearing damage. I have read George "Johnny" Johnson's autiobiography in which he mentions his "Lancaster ears" caused by his heroic hours in the aircraft. I also had the pleasure of meeting him during a visit to Scampton when we popped into the Petwood Hotel for a pot of tea.
