My Tinitus started about a year ago. Since then I have gone to 3 ENT specialists and NONE of them can do anything for me. ALL of them told me to try to live with it. SHIT! What kind of answer was that? And I have to pay for that piece of advice?? I do not know of and aid masker as mentioned here. Neither did the specialists recommend it. Is it that effective? Any side effects? The high pitch noise has gotton worse recently and it is in the right ear. I started to have Tinitus after a SEVERE headache and fever. The doctor change 2/3 types of antibiotics to cure me from that fever and cold.
