Can someone please explain what the difference is and what will help me.

I have tinnitus, it comes and goes, so isn't there all the time. The GP says it probably relates to hayfever/ allergies and is nothing sinister. It's loud and scary though.

The problem is that I have become quite obsessed about it. I seem to think about if it's there or not all the time and when it is there, I get so anxious I can barely function.

I went to the GP and she suggested deep breathing but it's just not enough. I need help to get some perspective and to deal with this before it takes over my life. It seems so insignificant but it's making me miserable.

I don't know what help I need though. I'm more than happy to pay for something that will make me feel better but have no idea where to start.

Can't help you on the mental health treatments, but our nephew found a white noise machine helpful.
