    Re: tinitus

    Hi,

    I'm definitely not a young adult (wish I was) but have had Tinnitus for as many years as I can remember.
    I was diagnosed by an ENT Specialist and a Cat Scan.
    What is it you want to know?...

    Solofelix.

    Unhappy Re: tinitus

    i am 21 years old and its been 3 months already since i have ringing in my ears.. its louder in my left ear and its been really tough on me..
    i would think i got this after a cold.. went to ent specialist but he couldnt do anything

    i would like to know how you have been coping? is it still a big issue after all these years of having it?
    how do you manage with sleeping or taking naps?

    At this point i find it really difficult to try to get to sleep.. taking naps during the day is nearly impossible.. at times i am able to cope but then i end up crying again thinking how im going to live with this

    Re: tinitus

    I know it's easier said than done but because I have had It so many years I have learned to ignore it. In the daytime when there are other noises it's not so noticeable but night time is different.
    Did your Dr offer any advice?... Years ago I was told it could be masked by another sound, how this is done I don't know and treatment has changed since then. I had a new baby when I developed mine and had no time to pay so much attention to it.
    I was also told I had Allergic Rhinitis by an ENT Dr and if you have allergy problems yourself treatment for that may lesson your symptoms.
    Google "Tinnitus" and read up about it and in the meantime I wish you well,

    Solofelix.

    Re: tinitus

    doctors told me to give it time and live with it
    im quite relieved knowing that you can perfectly ignore it..
    does it interrupts with your sleep however? is complete silence a bother for you when trying to get to sleep?
    im frustrated about the fact that i need maskers to sleep at night..

    Re: tinitus

    No!!...it dosent bother me because generally I'm tired and soon fall asleep.

    When I go on holiday, as there will be more noise in a hotel than there would be in my home I wear ear-plugs and have found that the noise from tinnitus is reduced. You could try that, also ringing in the ear can change in volume and can sometimes be less than it would normally be also depends on your nasal condition for example if your nasal passages are blocked up. Remember E.N.T. are all connected and if there is trouble in one then it can upset another,
