Who one here has this? When I say reactive I mean not only does it go up with louder sounds, but low level sounds too....such as the computer, sound therapy machine, your heater kicks on, any freaking noises around you the tinnitus competes with it. It has to be the loudest. I know that there is the whole "perception theory" but I actually hear mine getting louder, if a truck passes by my house, or The dishwasher is running. Geez, it drives me nuts. I feel as if I am having a really bad spike lately or I am just more focused on it. I had to quit the job. Luckily, the people who I was working for are very understanding, and will hire me back when I am ready. I believe I was actually making the anxiety worse, and in turn the tinnitus louder, from having to leave my comfort zone. That isn't even the worst part. I got a terrible cold the very VERY first day I was there. the luck, huh. Which I believe spiked the t too. I just got over a bad cold and then got another one. So I had to call in for 3 days.....being sick, and then worrying if I was going to be able to handle this job caused a lot of anxiety. Also, I have had t for about 10 months. Do you feel that yours has gotten louder since you first got it bc I sure do. Sometimes I think "how loud can this possibly get?" And the anxiety? does it ever get better? I still am suffering panic attacks. Well, it seems I come on here a lot to moan and groan, I know all of you understand.
Thanks, and God Bless,

Hi all! This is for those of you that have or have had the same neurologist for 4 years or more. I have been with mine now since 2009. He is one of the best movement disorder secialists in the midwest. I know he is extremely busy on the lecture circuit now and in fact not taking new patients there is a huge waiting list for him. BUT.... I feel like my visits are not what they use to be. He...
I gave my 2 week notice last Friday 13th. Now to join you fine people in a life of leisure and nothing else to do but to look out for myself....is it just me or does that sound pretty boring? My goal was to live to retire and I guess having to take early retirement because of health reasons wasn't exactly the way I had planned things. I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
