  1. Today
  2. I have had Tinnutis for so long I am used to it. A friend of mine who is a physician has it too and he at one point had trouble dealing with it too. At this point I wish my Tinnutis was my biggest issue to deal with in my life so I try to put things in perspective.
  3. Yesterday
  4. It would need to be something like an actual sound that can pull your mind away from your ears. Nature would be good, I am not sure about a rainstorm because it would sound too much like white noise.
  5. Yes, white noise works. I usually have Youtube audio playing while I try to fall asleep. I also play a little bit of solitaire on my phone or something simple and relaxing to help me fall asleep as well. I still suggest you find a psychiatrist to talk to. Simply talking to someone who knows how to deal with these situations will help you deal with the waiting period.
  6. @Ironman it’s just the snooz brand white noise machine... maybe I should try a sound instead!
  7. Hmm.....it's a matter of at least taking your mind off the ringing. Is it just white or actual sound, like waves on a beach?
  8. @Ironman I do have a white noise and fan going which helps I’m just so fixated on it that it’s making it worse sadly. But working very hard on not doing so. And I sleep on my side so sometimes that increases the sound since we ear is down on the pillow
  9. We had a heart scare with my son a few weeks ago. Then he had to quarentine because he was considered a close contact at school. My sister is going through a depressive episode and my husband is miserable at work and the job he thought he was going to get fell through. But I keep getting this fluttering in my chest and it's freaking me out.
  10. What are you thinking about that is triggering the anxiety?
  11. Have you tried a white noise machine or something to drown out the ringing?
  12. @BrightPhoenix I unfortunately can’t get anything sooner 😞 I do appreciate your response which is helpful! I do have slight allergies so it may be that. I worked hard on my breathing last night as I was trying to fall asleep and honestly it helped a lot. It helped calm me down and somewhat ignore the ringing. I worked hard in the past on not hyperfocusing on things and struggling a bit at the moment. Small reminders like this honestly help me refocus and chill out a bit. Until I can be seen I’m going to work hard on not checking if the ringing is still there and just ignoring it the best I can, drawing attention to it is only making it worse and fueling anxiety which is making me on such high alert! Once again I really appreciate the response!
  13. I'll admit I've been under alot of stress lately but today I feel awful. I have a fluttering in my chest, I feel sick to my stomach and a little lightheaded. I though maybe I was hungry so I ate but now I feel worse. I also feel like Im going to burst into tears.
  14. An archangel is an angel of high rank. "Archangel" itself is generally connected with the Abrahamic religions, yet creatures that are fundamentally the same as lead celestial hosts are found in various strict practices. Lead celestial hosts in current church customs. The four lead celestial hosts in Anglican custom, from left to right: Gabriel, Michael, Uriel, and Raphael. Seeing a rehashing number resembles your holy messenger highlighting you and causing you to feel seen and heard. I'm more yearning to think about and research on Spiritual Number so would let me realized that it has any association with archangel?
  15. Blood came from your nose. Nothing to be concerned about - address what's causing it. Is your area dry? Are you allergies bad? Have you been picking your nose a lot (yes, this actually happens).
  16. You should work on trying to get an earlier appointment if possible. And since I've lived with it all my life I can't tell what kind of coping techniques are necessary. I generally "forget" about it when I do stuff like engage in extracurricular activity (some biking). I guess it's really hard when it's something new to you vs something you've lived with all your life. Like I usually play music or games or I hang out outside and I can't hear it during the daytime, but it can get annoying at night. Is there a therapist you can talk to? I'm generally bad at giving psychiatric advice. I'm not an expert but the main thing is if the ringing comes and goes *but your hearing is still fine*, which it sounds like it is for you then I wouldn't be too worried. Do remember, lots of people live with it, you've had other people in this thread tell you how they have to live with it. *This does not mean it is a longtime thing for you*. It could be something simple like allergies, or maybe some wax stuck in your ear, or it could be your sinuses causing issues (do you have sinus problems? I do).
  17. Blood from the sinuses definitely occurs in dry weather. I had a bit of that and I even have a humidifier attached to my furnace to moisten the air to 37%! I even had it clotted with mucus.
  18. I would think the blood work would have picked up some kind of reaction if there was cancer.
  19. @BrightPhoenix hello! I have made an appointment with ent but it’s not for a few weeks.. do you have any coping techniques for times when the ringing seems much louder? I’m struggling a lot right now. I’ve been so good recently and the past few nights my ears have been blaring compared to what they’ve been. Then I panic it will stay like this... since this all began a year ago it’s fluctuated so much. It pretty much went away all last summer and then bam back again since October but have had times where I barely notice it. My anxiety is through the roof right now. Tips would be much appreciated! Thanks so much!!
  20. Thank you for the reply and your personal experience. I struggle because I can’t recall how long this has been with me. You’d think I’d know if I’ve had this for a while or not but it’s something I’ve stumbled on with my body and am now stuck on. I know I’m clear of the diabetes issue due to the blood work result but I’m nervous about the “rare” link to cancer. I wouldn’t be as worried if I knew I’ve had this for a long while.
  21. Last week
  22. You need to try to go a good length of time without having to get scanned. :)
  23. Good to hear. HA is such a beast. But at least you know what you need to work on now!
  24. Final update: Got the results of my brain scan back today. Totally clear. I do not have MS. At this point, all signs indicate a vestibular issue, as I'd previously mentioned. I'm going to get back into my VRT exercises and try to start enjoying life again.
