Sound sensitive

Posted , 3 users are following.

anyone get tinnitus all different ones and sound sensitive. Its been a few days and its giving me anxiety attacks. Bad headache with it. I have had it before but it went away i need it to go away. Im on no meds i cant use them.using motrin or tylenol.  I cant tell if its from headaches or whats going on. I feel like something bad is happening.  Its like no ones cares or understands. Husband honestly cant handle when these weird things happen so i cant talk to him at all.   So hard to suffer by myself. I had mris years back and two years ago. Can someone relate? I has a full exam back in march i was fine. Will it go away soon again? Scared.

      Different in each ear. Not all the time. Comes and goes. I checked it out years ago and then it went away. The last few days its here. I need all this to stop. I want to live and enjoy it. Accompanies headache..and suddle flashing light thing so i thought maybe migrane. I dont know, i dont get how life is good then boom this stuff happens. So unfair already. My support system for this stuff is poor. It seems to overwhelm my husband so I dont tell him much. sometimes i cant help but feel like im being punished for something by God and im a good person so i dont get it. All i do is try to help everyone else and yet here i am..😔

    Hey Lisa

    Im sorry your feeling rough

    I dont have any experience of what your suffering so I cant help with that.

    Could it be an ear infection or perhaps toothache like one of those headaches and you  dont know really know where its coming from

    Maybe you should go back and get it checked

    You know the drill keep hydrated etc

    Your not alonesurprised

    Dear Lisa,

            i'm very sorry to hear that you're scared.

    I have permanent ringing in my right ear. I'll also get an excruciatingly high pitched ringing that fades into a low muffle, around once a week.  it doesn't cause me headaches though, so i really think you should go to a doctor. Perhaps the headaches are brought on by your anxiety about the tinnitus rather than the actual tinnitus itself. 

      I've been told that Tinnitus is not exactly curable...every night i leave the radio on to get to sleep, it kinda cancels out the ringing. Luckily i don't have a partner or this would drive them up the wall.

     People certainly do care, you just gotta tell them!
