Tinnitus ....grrrr

Postby Estherlou » Tue Jan 29, 2013 12:31 am

Evening everyone, lying in bed and my ear is driving me insane. Aching all over as usual but to add insult to injury at this time of night the tinnitus that drives me mad. I can hear my pulse in my ear, I guess that's what it is or blood rushing but it is so loud. I am aware of it all day as it makes it harder to hear out of that ear but everyday sounds mask it a bit. All of my aunts and mum have either ms or FMs, as well as my grandma. Most have tinnitus too. I have never had it diagnosed as there doesn't seem to be a cure for it like all other fibro bits.
Weird thing is, when I press a certain part of my neck, the noise in my ear almost disappears. So end up sleeping on arm which hurts like mad!
I wondered if anyone could shed light on this in any way, the doc already has me under referall left right and centre and I think mentioning this may well put my on the beyond help barmy list :crazy:

Any advice or comments greatly recieved, can't see me sleeping well tonight anyway :roll:

Hi there

I also suffer from tinnitus, have done for years, so I know how you feel, only thing that ever helps me is when I have my earphones in and listening to music, apart from that I can't think of anything else to help it.

Hope you manage to sleep, sorry I can't be off more help

Hi, my Mrs suffers with Tinnitus and has done for years like yourself, I picked her up some relaxation CD's from Ebay at Christmas. Got a set of 12 CD's for £9 delivered. Each CD runs for about an hour and the sounds covered are :-

Autumn Forest
Hot Jungle
Summer Day
Log Fire
Torrential Rain
Tropical Beach
Tropical Storm
Waves of the Sea

Her ENT specialist put her onto the idea and they do help. If you wanna look for em then search on ebay for 'sounds of relaxing nature'
