    Try a white noise machine. I have mild tinnitus and I find that white noise helps. I use an air cleaner to produce it, but there are specifically made machines that make white noise.

    I do exactly as @oregano said. “Low” setting at night is wonderful for hidimg tinnitus. Soporific and soothing.

    If buying a new thing isn't in the budget right now, but you already have a television or radio, you could try having that on very low. I do that and it helps. Also remember to eat regularly.

    @oregano mine can't be drowned out past a certain point I have tried. It's just gotten bad recently due to stress probably and a chronic illness flare up. Thank you for the suggestion though.

    I'm not trying to drown the sound out. It's a high pitched thing, for years, unceasing. The tv music just gives a little something else to think about. Rather than that high pitch....which is not at all pleasant or fun to consider.

    Tree is kinda right, she often is. It's hard to get used to other noises sometimes. A ticking clock, an electric fan, the bathroom exhaust fan, soft music in another room, the spooky sound of a barely cracked open window

    They are a distraction from the internal noise. It doesnt work always or for everyone. Does anyone still use wind up clocks? Tick tock tick tock, it's very soothing. I used to have several in my quarters
