Hi, I'd like to help you with your question.
First, have you seen your doctor about this problem? I know that is an obvious question, but sometimes just hearing the doctor tell you that you do not have a serious problem and that there are treatments to help can alleviate your stress enormously.
There are techniques you can use to help you cope with the stress, the most important being self talk. I understand how sounds in your ears can be distressing, but remember, these sounds cannot hurt you. They are only noises. Sometimes, people who suffer with tinnitus or other noises can let their thoughts scare them. The what if's alone (what if this goes on forever and I go crazy, for example) can cause an increase in anxiety and distress. But counteracting these thoughts with calming and soothing thoughts can help.
Therapy has proven to be very effective, especially cognitive behavior therapy (CBT). To find a therapist, talk with your doctor. Or search on line at http://therapists.psychologytoday.com/rms/.
Biofeedback has also been effective for people with this problem. Talk with your doctor about exploring this option.
Taking supplements, such as B-12 and Omega 3 fish oil can also help, as can Ginkgo Biloba. Ask your doctor first about starting supplements as they can interfere with other medications or health conditions.
Educate yourself about your condition. A good place to start is The American Tinnitus Association. You can find them on line at http://www.ata.org/. They have books and other website links that can provide you with further information about your situation. The more you know, the less stressful this problem will be.
I hope this has helped you,
