Tinnitus
« on: December 07, 2013, 07:34:32 PM »
I've had tinnitus since August of this past year. It's a constant ringing noise in both my ears which I'm determined came from anxiety. I'm being treated for anxiety and depression with lexapro - which seems so far to make the tinnitus worse in the past few weeks. I'm caught between a rock and a hard place since I need the medication right now for severe depression. Anyone else experience tinnitus out there and how do you cope?

I'm sorry your having so much trouble with the ringing in your ears...I can relate, its not constant but I do get it a couple times a week. I don't really have any advice on how to cope with it. I just wanted to let you know your not alone.

Thanks Nancy. I hate that mine is constant....it's really hard to cope. I'm hoping the lexapro will allow me to filter it into the background as time moves on, but I'm not sure if that's wishful thinking or not?

I don't think that's wishful thinking I think your right I think eventually it won't be so bothersome, the more we focus on something the more it tends to be there.
