    I don't know the source of my tinnitus, but yeah, external noise helps counter it.

    Lots of different possibilities, including something simple like ear wax buildup near your ear drum.

    I worked without hearing protection on some very loud ultrasonic cleaning machines when I was younger.

    That would definitely do it. Depending on the cause Tinnitus can be treated. It seems that about all you can do if it's because of loud noises is getting something like a white noise machine to help mask the sound.

    but then you have a bunch of white noise in your ears. To me that's the same thing. My tinnitus is kind of like a high pitched hissing sound.
