Almost a year in after huge spike (MRI). Tinnitus fluctuates randomly. It's mild to moderate now. I don't use earplugs anymore. Sep 4, 2019

      Exteremly quiet tinnitus this morning. Audible only in completely quiet rooms. A few days ago it was multitonal concert. Such a difference.

      Surprisingly good fluctuations in tinnitus this week. Just woke up with mild ~18000 Hz hiss.

      If you know anything about visual snow, migraines and retina or know a good specialist please contact me this is very important.

      There's a high chance I'll have to do an 1-1.5 hour MRI pretty soon and it seems I don't really have another option.

      Literal jet engine tinnitus today. Can be heard over trains, cars, voices, pretty much anything.

      Since additional hearing loss I noticed more black floaters and they became more apparent. What's the connection there? No change in VS.

      If MuteButton doesn't come out in a few months this is the end for me

        Remove negative thoughts! Stay strong ok. You only have to do one moment at a time.

        Thank you!
        Unfortunately it's 4 time since tinnitus got worse since October. It got better a few times, but unfortunate circumstances bring it back. Currently even 1 or 2 hours seems too much.
        Pulsatile tinnitus (somatic from neck) got worse too after recent chiro session. =\
        I really hope MuteButton will work. I'm only 23 and I want to return to normal life to make my parents and relatives happy.

      I can't go on like this. 3 times hearing loss due to medical malpractice.

        How's your tinnitus now? From 0 to 10?
        Did it fade with time?

      Just got to the hospital. Dexamethasone IV + HBOT + some other stuff that I don't know yet. Thankfully it's covered by insurance

        HBOT really helped me with my knee. I had chronic pain from sports injury and now it's gone. Unbelievable.
        Now can walk for 3-5 km without any pain.

        It is not very easy where I am, it's $130 per session and it's a 50 minute drive one way and they don't go to 2 atm either.

        I have a spike after a jerk dropped metal parts on the floor in the hardware store. So I am not sure if it is worth it or not. Sadly Everything is a huge dilemma when it comes to T, all off label treatment options fall into the dangerous, difficult and expensive category

        $130 per session? Oh my days. My sessions cost me £17.50 each. 2.0atm.

      I think it's time to start antidepressants...

        Yes, antidepressants, meditation, yoga... can be helpful to deal with the emotional perfect storm. Healing is a complicated matter with our condition. You will get better even if the noise will not. Time is the only medicine.

        @PDodge I was prescribed Lexapro few years ago for panic attacks. Bought 2 packs and never ended up taking them. I was too afraid of brain fog and ED.
        But I think it's time. I heard that some antidepressants might reduce head tinnitus, I think @glynis had a good experience with them.

        I practiced mindfulness mediation before tinnitus. I think this is the main reason I can sleep now without any pills. I tapered off everything.

      I have perfect OAE, DPOAE and 10 db up to 16000 Hz and I have severe tinnitus. Can't be masked.

        @dpdx I think I saw in one of your posts that you used headphones at pretty loud volume. I used them before too... Dirt bikes every summer... Constant noise exposure leads to cochlear synaptopathy. My tests don't show any damage to hair cells. I believe that in my case 80-90% of tinnitus comes from damage to nerve connections. It just can't be THAT loud from acoustic trauma.

        @dpdx I spoke with few people who got tinnitus from concerts and had classic dips at 4-6 kHz and their tinnitus is 50% of mine...
        New doctors think that I had ssnhl in my left ear and then just got worse from noise. I had a sharp drop at 8 kHz in left ear only. It's all fine now, but tinnitus is merciless.

        I think that this temporary loss just triggered my brain to hear tinnitus and it's so bad, because my ear were constantly exposed to "safe" noise before... Dirt bikes are the worst offenders.

        I’ll just write here.
        Sorry.

        So first I wanted to thank you for answering.
        English isn’t my mother language so sorry for the mistakes.
        My ear are stuffy (blocked?) and I’m also afraid of make my T worse.

        Do you think that it will be a problem to have my ear stuffy with HBO ?

        What is betaserc?
