        @Wrfortiscue are you on any kind of medicine? Mines about 24/7 go to stomach doctor Monday.

        I have heard of stomach acid getting in the eustachian tube. Which can cause t or make it worse

        Good for you CrystalB! She is adorable. I got my puppy, Teddy, one year ago, and he has brightened up my life tremendously and done wonders for my relationship with my husband, which has been under some strain with covid & health issues. Good luck getting through the first year! It is challenging but so rewarding. :)

        He said I would lose hearing temporary until it healed,I think he said it would help with pressure in the ear.They offered it too me, but I declined it for now, trying to deal with it without medication for now, it’s hard. Are you on any? And does it help deal with it better? I read somewhere where someone had said that how they got use to there tinnitus was just not caring about it anymore.

        I'm not on any medication aside from trying the Prednisone pack. I'm going to an ENT to get checked out soon. Right now i'm in the same boat, trying to just get by without any additional medication, but we'll see. Are you able to sleep ok? The high pitch is making it hard for me.

        ENT can't find anything wrong. MRI fine. I got it a couple of days after tinnitus, and someone suggested to me that it was probably caused by the stress/anxiety of that. I would love to know for sure - such an odd symptom.

        @CrystalB What a wonderful experience it must have been to experience silence, if only for a day. I don't know for certain, but if there was any anesthesia involved, it could have maybe silenced the tinnitus temporarily?

        It did seem good.Tinnitus might had still been there but I might had been so out of it I couldn’t hear it. If the anesthesia did have effect on my tinnitus would that mean my tinnitus is coming from my Brain?

        Tinnitus emenates from the brain over amplifying the signals it sends after the ear's hair cells are damaged or compromised.

        I’m in the dark about the difference between “musicial tinnitus” and “audiotory hallucination”. I have a tone that’s music, but it’s also sometimes something from real-life conversation and even internal dialogue. Luckily most of gets drowned out by the piercing tone. If it was any louder I would go insane

        I have this garbage in my right ear. It seems particularly sensitive to high frequencies. I work near a window downstairs and there are wind chimes outside and if I stay down long enough they become absorbed in my tinnitus. Usually evaporates after an hour or so.

        Well, spikes always make me feel that way @CrystalB. Take me right back to square one until they alleviate, or on the occasions where they're permanent, I get used to them.

        About the hearing loss: none that can be detected on a standard audiogram, no. But I find it highly unlikely that anyone with noise induced tinnitus wouldn't have (hidden) hearing loss to some degree.

        @Damocles If we think about it everyone has hearing loss, if our ear has a threshold of 0hz - 20khz everyone has high frequency hearing loss.
        I think for us with tinnitus, if it's not something in the brain it's something messed up in our inner ear, nobody knows what.

        @CrystalB what it means is that you may very well have hearing loss in the higher frequencies. Humans can hear upto 16,000-20,000 but the standard test goes up to 8 I think. In my case, I also have good hearing apparently. But my T sounds like a high pitched hiss. Kind of like an old tv when it’s turned on.
