    A good idea in theory but unable to get to audiologist. Thanks ME. Not.
    There's something called Notch Therapy. Explained here:

    I never have high hopes of healthcare systems anywhere, but that made my jaw drop! I'm sorry you have to wait so long. I hope something that is written in this thread helps you in some way, because seriously, it looks like self-help for the tinnitus is your best option.

    I'm sorry, but I don't feel any the wiser after reading that. I understand that people use a hearing aid which does something, but what that something is is not explained in any way.

    Edit : I've just found this link, which does actually explain what notch therapy actually involves :

    Curiosity mainly for me. My husband was interested some time ago to understand what tinnitus sounds like for me. I couldn’t find anything online that came close to what I hear and didn’t bother with it again.

    I hear multiple sounds that are different in each ear. Sometimes a new sound is added quite suddenly. Sometimes a new sound stays, sometimes not. I get curious about trying to isolate the different pitches and determine what they are.

    My tinnitus does vary from time to time. And since I can no longer hear my tinnitus relaxer gadget with all the nice sounds on it I'm thrown back onto trying anything I can think of to help me ignore the sound. I can't understand or explain it, and I don't have any logic for it, but I've discovered that sometimes I can ignore my tinnitus better if I have ear plugs in. Can anyone else explain why this might be?
