Medications and alcohol can make tinnitus so much worse.
I have been playing in rock bands for 20 years.. Never use ear buds. I have to have white noise of some type to get to sleep.
If I walk into a rehearsal studio by myself I last about 2 minutes before running out.

There was a guy who had it so bad that he opted to have his ear drums removed... The sad thing was that the buzzing/ringing he had been hearing was still there in his brain after they removed the ear drums. He ended up taking his own life.. Poor guy

Also, my ex had to take carbamazapine for epilepsy.. It made her hear everything an ocatave or so lower... How strange is that

Tinnitus can be a symptom of magnesium deficiency so please make sure to rule this out before either giving up and living with it, or attempting some expensive fix.

I have had Tinnitus on and off for about 30 years but I can tell you that you can reverse or at least mask its effects.

Here are my tips:

* Don't listen loud for extended periods. Get a decibel meter and measure the sound pressure levels of your gear. Don't listen to music above 90 dB for extended periods.

* Be very careful with headphones. Even more so with IEMs. Again, don't listen loud for extended periods and measure the dBs.

* Avoid drugs and medication which aggravate Tinnitus: red wine, aspirin to name a few. (some reds can give me Tinnitus for days!! Oh well, such is life.....)

* I got a pair of musician's earplugs custom made for concerts. They reduce the sound pressure level by 15dB. Highly recommended for those who attend concerts or live music venues regularly.

* When using machinery around the home use ear plugs. Even a drill can produce Tinnitus inducing noise. I use earplugs or over the head ear muffs when mowing and using power tools. Hammering too can really bring it on!

* Tinnitus can be alleviated somewhat by just avoiding loud noises, in my experience.  If you cannot avoid loud noise then you need to protect your ears.

 

After reading this thread my Tinnitus (high frequency ringing) has returned! Bugger. There can be lots of triggers.

 

Tinnitus: ignore it and you will go deaf.

 

Cheers everyone...

Great Tips! Love my music but im wary when its TOO Loud. I wore Earplugs in the Iron Maiden concert :D I notice it most after too much caffeine or loud noise the day before and waking up after my ears been on the pillow for hours but usually goes away after circulations improved.

 

I wear Headphones and play music when Mowing the Lawn using the loud Ride On which works great for a couple of reasons :) & Im glad Im not a tradie :D

I haven't tried that one but I did get some relief from a technique of hard tapping on the back of the skull that I found on Youtube.

Now 57, tinnitus since god knows when. High pitch constant hum. Funny thing, I tune out. I can hear sounds softer than the tinnitus ring. One simply compensates, I guess.

OK, Vaporub didn't do much for me (some alcohol is better :-) )

Found one more possibility:
