Controlling Tinnitus: What works for you?

I am a American Tinnitus Association tinnitus Coach with severe tinnitus and moderate hearing loss. I conduct tinnitus support group classes here in Daytona beach, FL and support anyone over the phone or by internet Zoom. I was trained on white noise and cognitive behavioral therapy. I am an avid 13 year volunteer who was taught tinnitus support from a tinnitus professor here in Florida, University of Florida Health. Brain retraining with white noise, pink, lavender can help you retrain the brain. This is not a short process it takes time and coaching and a positive attitude. Hearing aids helped me so much through amplification and sound. Please stay positive, active if possible, visit only a seasoned tinnitus Audiologist for a true diagnosis and get some help. Good Luck to you.

Thanks for the recommendation – I will be seeing the audiologist in 3 weeks. My tinnitus has gotten bothersome enough that it overrides soft voices sometimes – a change for me, as I have had it for over 35 years, so I can no longer ignore it easily. I may be back for some tips and training afterward.
(PS – @julie04 – it was also a low-conflict way to get my husband to go to a real audiologist. "We both have issues, let's get this settled…" And I will be in the room, so I can write down what the audiologist actually says to each of us.)
