I have had MRI and CT scans which fortunately show no other problem. The tinnitus was brought on following an ear-infection upon returning on a long haul flight. I have now seen an audiologist who has given me a masker and sleep pillow speaker. The sleep pillow speaker works well but at the moment I am not sure if I am getting any benefit from the ear masker. The noise I experience is a white noise. Like the sound of a lap top battery. It is non stop 24 hrs a day. I seem to be able to get through the day without too much problem so long as I keep busy and have background music on or getting out and about so you have natural noises around you. The worse time is sitting down in the evening to watch television. I seem to compete with the television with the noise trying to outdo the TV. Going to bed is a lot easier with the pillow speaker as this distracts from the quietness. I would very much appreciate to hear from anyone experiencing the same problem and their thoughts of how to cope.
