I have had tinnitus for the last 30+ years and have tried loads of things to help but none of it worked or even helped,it is just one of the many things we have to put up with in life.
Don't get me wrong it is very annoying but to a certain extent as long as the tone doesn't change you can sort of get used to it,mainly my tinnitus is like the steam coming out a pressure cooker,but when the tone changes and it will quite often that is when it gets really annoying,but it always changes back.(for me anyway)
But just recently my tells me that my hearing is getting worse (I told her that no it wasn't I was just ignoring her) but she is correct I have noticed it so I had a test at a high street shop and they said that I was having trouble with the higher frequency and the tinnitus was the possible reason but being old won't help,they said that hearing aids would help and they may help the tinnitus as some have some sort of generator to mask the tinnitus,then they told me the price and i had to sit down and I said that I would not make a snap decision and I would have to think on it.
When I got home I started doing research and was astonished how many different types and manufacturers there are the big difference in price so I thought ok best I find a forum to read and get feedback and here I am
my hearing is getting worse the same way
I have had tinnitus for 3.5 years so far 24/7.And no sign of ceasing.Have now somehow managed to acquire a low humming sound although feel this is coming from where i live.
Anyone know or have high pitched frequency tinnitus;also with a low frequency humming that comes and goes.
This is one nasty condition.The effects it has on people and how it interferes with their everyday lives is considerable.The usual mantra of 'dont focus on it' i find totally bizarre.It's like if you had a piece of grit in your eye 24/7; would you be able to not concentrate on that.
