Well, last night I suddenly awoke to a very loud ringing in my ears. I have had problems with tinnitus for several years but it has never been this loud. Anyway, I started panicking and tried to slow my breathing down but that did not seem to help, so I immediately went to the hot tub on my porch and sat in it for 10 minutes. This seemed to lower the ringing and allowed me to get back in bed and fall asleep.
The worse thing you can do when the sound gets loud is to panic as it will only get louder.
Could be the the blood pressure medicine making it worse. Another obstacle to overcome…definitely makes it hard to meditate in a quiet room.
Some suggested vitamins that help: Zinc and Niacin.
