So I was first stresses and panicked, then came severe anxiety with T. I went to a therapist and as time passed I was getting better. My only distress now comes from my tinnitus. I’m just hard-of-hearing and I can function well in society and I have a great family and great friends so there’s always something to look forward to. I’ve just turned 23, and I know this doesn’t choose age and time, but I’ve been asking myself these questions. Replies: 15. My Dh has Tinnitus and this seems to be causing Panic attacks at night. I’m desperate to help him and offer some advice. I have noisy neighbours & downloaded a whoosh type noise that I put on my iPod & turned up high. Completely drowned out the neighbours and what’s weird is that you get used to the noise very quickly and just don’t notice it, if that makes sense. Borntobeamum Wed 04-Jul-12 15:57:36.
