Hi Michelle, yes I’ve had tinnitus for about 8 years. Neuro thinks it’s MS related as it’s worse when my other symptoms are bad. MS can cause it.
Go to your GP and get it checked out just in case something else is causing it. The fact that it went and came back again makes me wonder if it’s true tinnitus.
Mine is a high-pitched screeching and hissing.
If it’s tinnitus, there’s nothing that can be done. It seems worse at night because there’s nothing to distract you. So putting the radio on low can help… or you can buy a ‘sound box’ from Hearing Loss UK which has choice of sounds of sea, wind, rain etc.
I used a sound box for a few years but I then decided to get used to it… and I’ve been successful to a degree. Also I think mine is a bit lower in volume since I stopped smoking.
But do see your GP. Hoping your is not tinnitus. It can drive you nuts but you can, in time, get used to it.
