It's my first post. I have tinnitus since end of November 2017. I went trough as most of people had pannic attack, massive anxiety, lack of sleep, after 2-3 months I could sleep again and still do 6-7-8 hours I don't hear tinnitus in my sleep nor it wakes me up like it used to for first two months. How I have tinnitus ? I had massive stress one night and then I pushed ear bud down my left ear and it started same night. I've always used cotton buds (I know how stupid that was) I've poked my drum many times in the past but this time it done damage..
I think I had every kind high pitched noise. It was changing so often. Now it's mostly same hight pitched metallic noise in my left ear and much much quieter in right ear. I also have fullness in my left ear tonight for first time in months it's really bad just like it was at begining. Tinnitus still makes me anxious. I try to relax or occupie myself as being home is the hardest thing. What do I do? Simple thing like having a bath with music on. Playing some games on pc. Browse net. Be in the garden as I can't hear tinnitus there. Just trying to have as normal life as I can.
Just though I'll share my thoughts ..
