I can sympatize with anyone that has Tinnitus, it a horrible thing to cope with, makes you nervous, loss of sleep, and sometimes it makes you feel like if doesn't stop you will go out of your mind. I have had it for several yers, and it affects Rt. ear, sometimes I wonder if the noise is in my brain. Anyway I have experienced waking up to it worse than being in an upward position, why I don't know. I have a steady noise and also seems like nerve or nerves going crazy like fine tuning noise's hard to explain, you would have to be in my body to be able to know what am talking about, hard to explain.....I pray for your relief, I know what you are going through, I wish the drs. would take this more seriously, and also more research so can find somehhing that would help.
