Quick announcement from my tinnitus: 

BEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEP

Quick announcement from my tinnitus: 

@Gina
Sounds loud

Quick announcement from my tinnitus: 

@techonify yeah it's very present.

Quick announcement from my tinnitus: 

@Gina Made me laugh! (fellow Beeeep sufferer)

Quick announcement from my tinnitus: 

@oilyfish my sympathies, it's the worst.

Quick announcement from my tinnitus: 

@Gina I just look at it like I'm never alone! Beeeeep!

Quick announcement from my tinnitus:

/me runs

Quick announcement from my tinnitus: 

@Gina I hear your pain, I get it too, from my M.S.

Quick announcement from my tinnitus: 

@GoatsLive Ah crap that's a very unfortunate combo :(

Quick announcement from my tinnitus: 

@Gina I roll with it. The M.S. has me in a wheelchair, and cancer took my colon 5 years ago, so I do my business out the front. No biggie, wife doesn't mind and the goats don't care so it's all good 😀

Quick announcement from my tinnitus: 

@Gina same. it's like you always hear the sound of a fridge in the background 😩

Quick announcement from my tinnitus: 

@nvsr yes exactly that!

Quick announcement from my tinnitus: 

@Gina @nvsr
A lot more people suffering from it than I would have thought.

l have it too, fortunately it's usually mild. I feel bad for people who have it worse than me...

@normandc @Gina @nvsr mine more of a hum than a beep. So I'm grateful for that, ... I guess.

Quick announcement from my tinnitus: 

@Gina I hear you. No, that’s just my tinnitus.

Quick announcement from my tinnitus: 

@Gina yep sounds right (especially for someone who is hard of hearing)

Quick announcement from my tinnitus: 

@Gina I put mineral oil in/aroud my ears at least once a week. It helps a bit.

Quick announcement from my tinnitus: 

@Gina tinnitus is the worst thing its either loud hissing or thaft weird beep AAAAH

Quick announcement from my tinnitus: 

@Gina
My Tinnitus tells me the same.
Unfortunately, the alarm clock interferes by saying
BeepBeepBeepBeep BeepBeepBeepBeep BeepBeepBeepBeep BeepBeepBeepBeep

This is confusing. Who should I listen to?

Quick announcement from my tinnitus: 

@Gina So sorry to hear that. Recently mine got louder as well but I think it's due to (work related) stress. I varies in intensity. For me it's a high pitch beeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeep. And I guess it's around 7KHz - 8KHz. Not exactly sure though. Sometimes it's negletable but sometimes it's so present I can't even concentrate on watching TV.

I hear and feel you, Gina.

Quick announcement from my tinnitus: 

@luricaun Tnx, same here. I've only started noticing it recently and I'm already researching how to prevent this from getting worse, because damnnn it's annoying.

Quick announcement from my tinnitus: 

@Gina My advice would be go to an ENT doctor and let it check out.

Also there is some medication called "BINKO" which should help counteract the symptoms. It's not working for me though. But speak with a doctor first if this makes sense. From what I know the earlier you see a doctor the better the chances of it not becoming permanent.

Here's a link so that you might look for it in The Netherlands.

Quick announcement from my tinnitus: 

@luricaun Oooh I thought tinnitus was just something you learned to live with? It's not terrible though, I barely notice it while doing stuff, it's just very present when it's quiet at night.

I'll look into it, thanks!

Quick announcement from my tinnitus: 

@Gina It is something you have to live with but in some cases you can treat it. There is also some experimental treatment called "Tinnitracks". Unfortunately most health insurances won't pay for it. And this is for people with heavy cases.

You can read more about it here:

Quick announcement from my tinnitus: 

@luricaun interesting, I did the tinnitus-matching and got 3200hz.

Quick announcement from my tinnitus: 

@Gina I have a much higher frequency probably something around 7.000 - 8.000 Hz. Did a hearing test and noticed it in this regions. Lower frequencies were fine. In those areas I have definitely worse hearing than in other frequencies.

But seriously. Go check it out. Deepending on how long it has been chances get way less to get it treated.

@Gina I saw this a couple of years ago, you should try it! youtu.be/KBgkPOGD6g

Report back!

Quick announcement from my tinnitus: 

@Gina Mine replies MMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMmmmmmmm

Quick announcement from my tinnitus: 

@Gina Ugh, I'm sorry you're having to deal with tinnitus, too. Mine just started in May and it sounds like the high-pitched sound an old CRT television makes when you first turn it on. I went to an ENT he said nothing was physically wrong with my ears, that it would probably eventually go away, and to come back if it gets worse. It hasn't gotten worse, but it hasn't gone away! Fun times!

re: Quick announcement from my tinnitus: 

@Gina Tell me about yours. Mine is aproximately tone number 4, around 8khz triangle wave. I've been raising it for 20 years now, organic, artisan tinnitus.

Quick announcement from my tinnitus: 

@Gina I noticed this ended with a "P".

Still waiting for mine to get there 😂
