I've recently moved into a new flat in a nice quite part of the Scottish borders and my Tinnitus has got worse, I don't no why, since I don't easily get stressed even when moving into a new area as many people find moving house very stressful, I take it in my stride. In my old flat I was doing fine coping with Tinnitus but now its loud and I cannot put my finger on why it should be ? The humming noise in my right ear is dreadful in the middle of the night: the Tinnitus in my left ear is lower than before ? I don't really know if the humming noise is Tinnitus or Hyperacusis ? I wonder do some of you guys classify a humming noise as Tinnitus ? My understanding of Tinnitus is of bells or siren type noises in the ear or at the top of the head. Could a humming or buzzing noise not be Tinnitus or have I got this wrong ?
Furthermore, I sometimes go and visit relatives and stay overnight in their homes and find my Tinnitus and humming noise levels barely audible and sleep-well. I sometimes think if these noises originate from my head why do change when I stay elsewhere ? The only connection I can make is background noise is different depending where you move to. I've moved into a quiet area and that's hardly conducive to internal Tinnitus which logically should sound louder. I wish I had not moved now. Any tips on what this humming noise really is I'd greatly appreciate any info. I'm familiar with the bell like quality of Tinnitus.
many thanks !
