Fibromyalgia & Tinnitus

Posted , 5 users are following.

Hi everyone,

I have been diagnosed with Fibro following a neck injury12 months ago, from the day i damaged my neck I have had a hi pitched squeal in both ears.

Firstly are the conditions linked and is there anything I can try, i've got a sound pillow which plays music or sounds through a small speaker which has a definite effect over night.

Is there anything that can help during the day time?

    Hi Graham ,keep some noise going in background ,silence just aggravates it I've found ,I've got rhinitis going as well which in turn affects my tinnitus ,when it's low it goes inwards ,so never good day ,so high and low is not good ,with allergies .

       So keep noise in background preferably not through head phones .

      Distraction as much as you can ,not easy ,but when loud that helps .

    Get your hearing checked for hearing aids. Everybiody I know (including me) who is hard of hearing, which is a polite way of saying deaf, has tinnitus and all find hearing aids help it a lot. Although I hear almost every noise around when I.m kitted up and plugged in. which can be annoying, I don't hear that "rushing" noise or that high pitched squeal.

    My hearing is excellent too.  However with Carefull examination I have a slight drop a 6 KHz.   This is very common for tinnitus.  I have a hearing aid that produces noise at 6KHz of 30 decibels and it is enough to mask my tinnitus at night time. I wear the hearing ais just for sleep

    if you wish to drown out the noise externally you can check out the site Hush Tinnitus. I purchased from them sound files that perfectly match my tinnitus, the only problem being it was great for me but my wife could not stand the noisesmilesmile

      Training aids are or were given to some people, my brother included. No unlike the ear pieces supplied for general use these are bespoke therefor only fir the ear they are made for and there is little or no sound leakage.
