Cherriann: I see you have issues with tinnitus. I am not sure what you hear but I have the tinnitus with the real high pitched ring and also was diagnosed with reactive tinnitus…this is a real low pitched drone. It gets worse when I am exposed to noise…like that found in restaurants or meeting places. I spent 4 hours at the Froedert Tinnitus/Hearing clinic in Milwaukee 6 weeks ago and was very pleased with the time they spent with me. They recommended sound therapy(white noise,etc) several hours and day. I can either use my earmuffs or my Phonak Compilot 2. I should see results within 6-9 months. I will let you know how that works. I am finally understanding the problem. I have been retired for a little over a year. When I was working my office was right above the plants compressor/utility area. The low drone pitch I am hearing now is the noise I was exposed for over 30 years! Isn't that interesting? Just thought I would share this. Hope things get better for you!
