    Tinnitus Since:
    Cause of Tinnitus:
    Loud noise
    When I was 6, I had the idea to blow into some whistle straws, the kind that make that ridiculous shrill shriek when you blow into them. I got two of them, stuck one end of each into both of my ears and started jamming out and dancing around, having a blast. When you're that age, you find simple ways to stay entertained. Well, once I grew tired of dancing around like I was at a rave party, I pulled the straws out and noticed a slight ringing in both ears. Maybe a 1 or so on a scale to 10. Told my parents, then didn't think much of it after that.

    Well, here I am ten years later with tinnitus I would rate at a 6/10. My ringing has gradually increased over the years and spikes have become more and more frequent, with some lasting longer than "normal" (About 20-30 seconds for a "normal" spike.)

    I have inadvertently let my tinnitus take control of my life. I am constantly paranoid and can never relax in "loud" situations, let it be school, movies, or just hanging out with friends. I've skipped out on the monthly dances my Church organises, and I get frequent anxiety attacks when I do find myself in loud situations.

    My hope is that I'll be able to come to terms with my T, through the tremendous support I've seen on this sight before I even signed up. I'm so glad I found this site.
