Sat in a pub with friends last night when, dead on 8pm, a DJ started up and suddenly nobody could hear anybody else. The ringing is bad today.

lying in bed this morning at about 5:30 listening to the birds waking up and something clicked and the tinnitus got suddenly louder and changed frequency (to one that masked out about half of the birdsong). it's grim. i hope it stops.

tons of batshit tinnitus 'cures' on youtube.

see an ent as soon as you can (make sure that includes a hearing test with an audiologist)

the tests you undergo are simple hearing tests so it's nothing painful

i do wonder how on earth (ho ho) kevin martin copes with his gigs as 'the bug' as they are supposedly insanely loud.

never seen him mention anything re ear protection.

doctor reckons, and i hope, that my recent noise upturn is related to recent / ongoing cold / sore throat / etc. and that antibiotics will clear it all up.

it's still there, still as loud, but it now sounds like it's more to the left than it was.

every time i get a lurgy, the inner ear buzz increases.
hopefully once you are clear it will subside to a more acceptable level.

That's awful. Stories like this used to keep me awake way more than the actual tinnitus when it first set in. Then I would look at people like Neil Young, who must have it as bad as anybody, and he gets by. Made me think there was a way to make peace with this thing. And there is. Like Steve Martin (another sufferer) said, "you just get used to it."
