I've had it since Fall of 2009. I had a nasty concussion. It's been ringing every since. And the sjogrens kicked in Spring 2010 which, somehow, made it worse. ARGH.

Hi there! Its nice to see a fellow Texan here
And yeah, I can only imagine being hearing impaired and having tinnitus. I feel for you. I am terribly sorry you're going through that.
Can you hear music through headphones? If so, I suggest getting a CD with pleasant sounds on it. Like a water fall. Or a bubbling brook. Perhaps a certain animal type sound that is pleasing for you personally. Just any "pleasing" noise and play it while you go to sleep. I bet you'd sleep better.
.....or just simply play music I go crazy without any background noise when its bed time. I cannot sleep when its pitch quiet.

I am hearing impaired so tinnitus is a constant 24/7 problem for me. I hear ringing, pulsing, high-pitched pinging, roaring, and sometimes talking.
Occasionally I'll wake up in the middle of the night thinking my radio is on because I'm hearing music, but when I put my hearing aids in there is no sound at all coming from the radio/alarm. Those incidents spook me.
Try having your fillings checked. It has happened (but it is rare) that a filling can act to receive radio signals much like a crystal set does.

I have it as well and I have noticed that it gets especially loud after ... 4:20.
Normally the high pitched whine I hear is ignorable, but at times when I'm "foggy" it reaches a howling crescendo.
