Tinnitus-New sound added to my current tinnitus since tapering. Anyone else?


Recommended Posts

Four years ago during one of my attempts of getting off my AD, I started having tinnitus. It literally threw me into a nervous breakdown. I didn't know what was going on....anyways-fast forward 4 years, I have learned to live with the constant ringing in my ears. 

I started tapering about a month ago. This week I noticed a whistle from time to time when I talk. I have discovered when someone talks (or I do) in a little bit of a higher tone, I hear this annoying whistle in my right ear.

Honestly I am totally okay with it....(because there are others struggling in this world with way worse)... I can....once again....learn to live with it.

It just makes me sad, because when my younger one gets excited her pitch goes way up. And then it sounds like someone is whistling loudly in my ear. And honestly it kindof hurts. I'm really hoping I will get used to it soon....because I want to hear her cute little voice and enjoy it! 

I'm not turning back....so I guess I will have to live with it....I'm still going to keep moving forward with my taper. Just wondering if anyone else experienced this??? It's so weird!!!! 🤪
