I have had tinnitus for just over a year. It's like a constant white noise, not so noticeable when I'm out or when I'm in busy. I've been to ENT but everything ok. Hearing normal, just advised that it is probably due to neck arthritis which I also have.
I Take Citalopram for anxiety and aspirin based med for neck so I think it could be the side effect of both meds causing tinnitus as they are both capable of it.
The heat in the UK is bad for me at the moment because it makes my anxiety worse which in turn makes my tinnitus worse. I have a noisy fan on constantly but I've noticed my tinnitus is worse for it and it makes my anxiety worse. It also gives me headaches. It's a vicious circle. I've tried ear plugs but then I can hear my heart beat and it freaks me out.
Does anyone's tinnitus problems sound similar? Any suggestions please welcome.
Thanks for listening.
