The Loneliness of Tinnitus

Hi there

We believe you if your nearest and dearest do not.  Tinnitus is individual to everyone.  It can be shrill or monotone, a noise or humming.  People suffer it in different parts of the  head.

I wonder, purely unscientifically, if it has anything to do with lack of water.  Also lack of sleep stresses us and that can lead to an upsurge in our tinnitus.  I can’t hear it today, but I’ve been making myself drink lots of water.  The reason?  I have a deadline for a writer’s contest.  Not that I have any chance of being good enough; I’m just having a go anyway.  But if I’m stressed the tinnitus does its best to interfere.  I’m literally drowning it out!

What do you do to minimise your tinnitus?

Have a great week

Squealing Tinnitus Or A Cold In The Head

Hi there

One of the main causes of tinnitus is issues with your sinuses.  Having a cold or flu can trigger it.  That’s because you have a runny noise and sort it with a tissue.  The harder you blow, the more likely you are to damage your ears.  Weird huh?  Unfortunately doing it can trigger tinnitus .  So keep it gentle.

Hearing squeaks when you have a cold.  Whatever it is you were just doing that might have caused that squeak, can you stop doing it?  Crazy I know but it’s just this screwball theory.  If it’s not that you’ll soon know as your house will be full of screwball people wanting to try it out.  This tinnitus is even less fun than the droning of the airconditioning constantly in your ears.

Lots of sleep and lots of water works for us.  Happy New Year!

Hi there

 

My theory may be shatterbrained but every time I feel thirsty, the tinnitus drone feels louder.

 

After a swimming session, I don’t hear it ;   Alright, I admit that may be more to do with exercise than water intake.

 

Someone told me her mother swore by weighing herself before going into a swimming pool as waterlogging of the body would mean she would weigh more later!Drinking water works to send away tinnitus.  Don’t wait for it happen.  the brain will say:

 

‘You’re waiting for what?!’

 

‘Oh, that noise.  Okay I can make that noise.’  And the tinnitus will start up again.

 

Is this crazy?  Possibly.  You have always to remember that people have been thought crazy throughout history.  What happened to the guy who said:

 

“The world is round.”

 

“Yeah, right and Orion’s Star Belt signifies the end of the universe.”

 

Follow alcohol with water at Christmas and banish the tinnitus.

 

Happy countdown.

Can you see the birdie? Let it merge with the background like your tinnitus.

Tinnitus Indie / Movie Distraction

Find the Indie (independent) books and film markets.  There are great films being made that need your vote, your one-liner that you liked the acting or the writing because …  An example is ‘ Betsy And Leonard’   www.facebook.com/pages/Betsy-Leonard/168348073217371    . It’s just a comment but it helps them for the next book they write or film they make.  Your opinion counts.  They write from the soul and share it with you.

When you focus on something else, the tinnitus can reduce.  If I think about it, maybe I can hear sounds or maybe it’s the fan.  The moment I’m absorbed, I forget about it.

When reminded that he has tinnitus, my Dad said:

“Oh, I’d forgotten about that. “

I felt dreadful and have never mentioned it since.  Same mild tinnitus issue.  People react in different ways.  What works for you?
