Welcome to my profile on Tinnitus Talk!

For a period of years (2013-2015), I was an active member of Tinnitus Talk and partook in a number of initiatives (such as "Team Trobalt"). Since 2016, my "tinnitus situation" has been essentially resolved: I am left with just very mild tinnitus – a ringing that has no impact on my life what-so-ever (e.g. sleep, concentration, work). However, despite my significant tinnitus improvement, I still remained active "on the sidelines" through my efforts in promoting the initiative called Towards an Understanding of Tinnitus Heterogeneity (a research topic launched in the Summer of 2016). But... as of 2019, I have decided to fully leave the public tinnitus community: I have resumed a completely normal life and I no longer identify with the daily grind of tinnitus forums.
As I could feel my tinnitus journey was coming to a definite end, I made a one-off donation of $1,000 in favour of TinnitusTalk earlier in 2019 (six years after my life was completely altered in every possible way).
My Tinnitus History
I have lived with tinnitus for most of my life – in fact, for as long as I can remember! It became life-changing in April 2013 after a significant worsening (possibly as a result of ear canal inflammation from using earplugs at night-time). Why I have always had ringing ears is unclear to me – but possible causes could be:
- Head injury from a car accident (at 6 months of age).
- Chronic childhood ear infections (at 2-5 years old).
- Ototoxic medication administered for a stomach infection (in the early 1980s).
Best wishes to all those traveling this difficult journey...
