I too have lived with tinnitus. My husband moved to the spare bedroom 3 years ago because he was tired of listening to the TV all night. He didn't understand that the noise in my ears kept me awake if I didn't use the TV to drown out the noise. A year ago I was diagnosed with Meniere's Disease. Has he been to see an Ear, Nose and Throat specialist yet? I drink alot of water. If I eat alot of sodium my tinnitus is worse. So, I have cut down on the salt and drink alot of water. It has helped me alot. There are alot of information on the Net regarding Meniere's Disease. You might want to check it out!
