    Jesus man. This is gut wrenching. Please take care of yourself and seek help. I’m not one to pray but I am praying for you. Is there nothing you...

  3. Clerkp replied to the thread Will You Get Vaccinated for Coronavirus (COVID-19)? Can It Make Tinnitus or Hyperacusis Worse?.

    Interesting stuff that VAERS search. So out of 300,000 adverse reports on the Moderna shot, there are 4700 reports of tinnitus. It's one of the...

  4. Clerkp replied to the thread Will You Get Vaccinated for Coronavirus (COVID-19)? Can It Make Tinnitus or Hyperacusis Worse?.

    Yeah I mean look, this isn’t a source supporting that “vaccines are known to cause tinnitus”. We can’t create further alarm on this website based...

  5. Clerkp replied to the thread Will You Get Vaccinated for Coronavirus (COVID-19)? Can It Make Tinnitus or Hyperacusis Worse?.

    Do you have a source for this? A little poking around here and some anecdotal stories but it does not appear that tinnitus is an identified side...

    Great. Shingles in a couple of years for me.

  7. Clerkp replied to the thread Will You Get Vaccinated for Coronavirus (COVID-19)? Can It Make Tinnitus or Hyperacusis Worse?.

    Sure. But the vast majority of us here are not homebound and that won’t be an option going forward. If you are indeed homebound, by all means skip...

  8. Clerkp rated aura's post Agree in the thread Will You Get Vaccinated for Coronavirus (COVID-19)? Can It Make Tinnitus or Hyperacusis Worse?.

    I don't understand either, but that doesn't mean it's not possible. I also blame it on the inflammatory effect, but I guess we'll just have to...

  9. Clerkp replied to the thread Will You Get Vaccinated for Coronavirus (COVID-19)? Can It Make Tinnitus or Hyperacusis Worse?.

    Which also means that if 10 to 15 percent of COVID-19 cases report tinnitus, the actual number is probably 2x that. So the math still says...

  10. Clerkp replied to the thread Will You Get Vaccinated for Coronavirus (COVID-19)? Can It Make Tinnitus or Hyperacusis Worse?.

    I got the full third dose of Moderna. I did it in the middle of my spike. I do not believe it affected my tinnitus either way. My tinnitus is...

  11. Clerkp liked GregCA's post in the thread Will You Get Vaccinated for Coronavirus (COVID-19)? Can It Make Tinnitus or Hyperacusis Worse?.

    OK, we're at about 3 days post booster. I got a bit of fatigue for about a day, and a sore arm. No change in my tinnitus.

  12. Clerkp replied to the thread Will You Get Vaccinated for Coronavirus (COVID-19)? Can It Make Tinnitus or Hyperacusis Worse?.

    It would be nice if we could get some real science around this. I certainly understand how actual COVID-19 could damage our ears. The vaccines -...

  13. Clerkp replied to the thread Suicidal.

    Good advice. I’ve purchased a few musicians earplugs on Amazon that work in this way. I’ll probably go for the customs at some point. I agree,...

    Interesting. Yesterday was my worst day in quite a while as well. Not even a large gathering. Just more time around the kids than usual. My ears...

  15. Clerkp replied to the thread Will Increasing Hearing Loss Make My Tinnitus Worse?.

    Makes sense but I sure hope not. I’m 46. If it gets much worse I won’t be able to cope. Right now I can deal with it barely but there no room for...

  16. Clerkp replied to the thread Will You Get Vaccinated for Coronavirus (COVID-19)? Can It Make Tinnitus or Hyperacusis Worse?.

    Plausible theory for sure. Presumably there could be some overlap meaning someone with noise induced tinnitus could have a reaction to the shot...

    I suspect it's temporary. But definitely ease off for a myriad of health reasons. Not just the tinnitus. 1 a night sounds reasonable. I know it's...

  24. Clerkp replied to the thread Never Get Complacent — Tinnitus Can Get Worse.

    Good luck. Not sure I'm sold on the idea that all headphone use is bad but as you point out, certainly volume is. My guess is that if just 1...

    I did not notice any increased tinnitus from any of my 3 shots. I would go with the booster.
