Just wanted to ask all your experiences with tinnitus, how it's affected your life, how you deal with it, protect from it etc.
Mine's been spiking lately and it's giving me the absolute shits.. Need some emotional support.

I had Octoban once, it was kind of like calamari but a bit chewier.

Constant ringing in the ears, especially when you try to sleep. It's annoying!

Once i started noticing i had it, i did take some serious actions to lessen its effects, namely listening to music on headphones alot less, and on much lower volumes, using earplugs at gigs, and when playing guitar at loud volumes. And even measures like drinking very little coffee and trying to avoid asprin.
I really sympathise with you if its affecting your day-today life, touch wood i dont end up that bad.

We had an exam at tafe where we had to tell how many dB a certain frequency had dropped by and half the time i couldn't tell whether it had even changed or not because of the ringing haha. it pisses me right off
