My high pitch tinnitus is audible, due to stress, anxiety and hvy sleep loss. How can I treat it and will it fade away with the stress?

Well...yeah, I guess: If you absolutely know WHAT THE TRIGGERS are for you tinnitus and you work to solve those issues then, certainly it stands to reason that the noise should subside, right? On the other hand if it doesn't then, there other options. Do you know what caused the condition in the first place? Treating the cause is the most effective way around this problem. There are white noise cancellation devices. ...Read more

Patting head with hands using moderate force provides relief from this high pitch tinnitus I've been having. But am I risking mild concussion?

Patting head with hands using moderate force  provides relief from this high pitch tinnitus I've been having. But am I risking mild concussion?

Not even close: You wouldn't be able to concuss yourself if you had the strength of a mastodon! That's because by pressing on your head you're simply activating pressure receptors and pain receptors in your scalp. You're not causing a sudden deceleration of the brain in the cranial vault which is what is needed to cause a concussion. BTW, I'm sure you'd be a very attractive mastodon. Happy Valentine's Day! ...Read more

I have constant high pitch tinnitus from inner ear surgery. Im 12 weeks post op and the noise is driving me crazy. I was taking Valium at night but stopped. Is there anything else i can do? Vitamins?

Tinnitus: Unfortunately, tinnitus is not an easy one to treat, especially if it occurred after surgery. Unless you've made a contact with the ENT who did the surgery, i would strongly suggest you call him and discuss that with him. Your surgery may need revision or certain studies to be done. No vitamins or supplements would help. ...Read more

Tinnitus is a high pitched sound. what can tinnitus cause?

Hearing loss: Although the question should more appropriately be what causes tinnitus, the best answer to give you is that in some patients at the beginning of their awareness of the sound in the ear, they become depressed, anxious and unhappy. Tinnitus does not cause anything else. But the presence of tinnitus, particularly, unilateral tinnitus rarely can be associated with an acoustic tumor. ...Read more

Had MVD 6 months ago and have been suffering tinnitus (high pitch) on affected side for few months now. Could this subside?

Timnitis: I assume that MVD is mitral valve disease. Anyway if you have tinnitus, you should get a hearing test to see if you have a hearing loss. This will give the ENT doctor an opportunity to talk to you about your hearing. If you have a hearing loss, it is not necessarily going to get better. At that point, you have to take steps to keep it from getting worse. These include ear plugs in loud places ...Read more
