hello and welcome to HCM,

You are suffering from tinnitus so let us go over a few points:
1. Get a full ENT examination including the state of the drum and get an audiometry testing done to assess the hearing
2. Get a CT of the temporal bone to rule out any other common cause of tinnitus
3. Get a full blood profiling including cholesterol level estimation to rule out atherosclerosis of the blood vessels.
4. An angiographic study of your carotids is also advised
5. If all the tests are normal then you have diagnosis of essential tinnitus. If thats the case then there is a new drug called the TINNICAR which is a prostaglandin analogue and is available in both tablet and injectable forms. I have been having a fair degree of success in relief of tinnitus by using this drug. Ask your ENT about the same
6. Learn some relaxation technique like the yoga which can reduce the stress you are having because of the sound and may even reduce the sound
7. If you have hearing loss then hearing aids can help you in hearing and as well as reduce the sound
8. While sleeping when the sound is the most then concentrate on other sound like the fan, radio or a big clock
take care and do not concentrate on the sound much, i know its easier said than done but its in your hands completely.
