      Hi Jason. I’m 3 months and still suffering. Do You hear your tinnitus at all anymore? I see your still visiting the site? Are you just keeping up with friends or has your tinnitus come back?

        If yours has faded over the past two months, but is still very prominent at the three-months mark, it ought to fade, but it might take a 12-18-24 months. You might want to wear foam plugs (e.g., 3M 1100) when you are around your baby and especially when you carry the baby. Loud noises when the source is very close to one's ear can be dangerous.

        As long as you avoid a secondary acoustic trauma it is reasonable to expect that eventually you will mostly get over it.

        Yes thank you. I ordered custom ear plug when I hold the baby. I don’t want to be scared of my own baby. mine wasn’t acoustic trauma. It just happened all sudden while watching tv. May of been stress bc I was remodeling my kitchen at the time. But either way acoustic trama could make it worse.

      Can you give us an update on how you're faring now? How life is, what you do. Did the fleeting T bouts die down. Anything like that.

        I’m very well Thankyou.

        The fleeting tinnitus still occurs, this only lasts for 10 seconds at a time and occasionally I get a sensation of pressure difference in my ears for maybe 10-15 seconds a time but I’m pretty sure I had that now and then before the acoustic trauma.
        The 29th of this month will be 3 years from the event that caused my acoustic trauma, thankfully no tinnitus now.

        I did do a skydive over new year this year and was fearful that this might be too much but thankfully I didn’t have any problems after.

        Life is back to normal now but I now understand how noise works and when to be careful. I use in ear monitors for times when I need to protect my hearing in loud environments like a show at the opera house and plug my ears if an ambulance goes screaming past but I dont over protect and I use noice cancelling headphones for flying.

      Hello Jason!

      How did you avoid noise during the year and a half/two years it took for your tinnitus to disappear completely?

      I have been struggling for roughly the same length of time, though my case is considerably less severe (with regards to side effects such as balance etc) and I continued to keep it worse with noisy activities (no more!)

      Please keep it up! You are an inspiration to others!

        Hiya

        Really I was just careful with loud noise, if I went to see a show I would use ear plugs and if I’m using power tools I would use ear muffs, I didn’t over protect though so if I went to a restaurant I wouldnt use hearing protection.
        Obviously you can’t avoid all loud noises and these things happen. You just need to do what ya can :)

        When did it go away? Did you use vitamins or something special?

        It was a good year before it went away, I read you don’t have tinnitus? You are very lucky, I had terrible tinnitus along with ear fullness, balance problems etc it was a horrible time.

      Hi Jason, just want to say thanks - your story is giving me hope. As I seem to be in the exact same situation with acoustic trauma and Tinnitus being reactive and being lowest in silence, hope to get to the same point eventually and post a success story.

        Hey @Jason C sorry to bother you, you probably don't want to be reminded of these events anymore. But do you remember in which way your T went away? - as in, did it slowly fade until it was no longer there, or did you wake up one morning and it was just gone?

        Hiya, The tone changed into a higher tone that seemed to get higher and higher until I couldn’t hear it any more, the distortion in sounds eased and hypercaudis faded. It took a long time though. Thankfully I seem to be fully recovered ow and am about 8 weeks away from 2 years since the event that caused it all.

        You are so lucky. How does your audiogram look like?

        Did you also have Tinnitus spikes in that 12-18 month range?

        Audio gram up to 8k is fine, all within the 20db range, I know from my own tests however that my left ear cannot hear past 15k yet my right ear can hear past 16k.
        For the first 12 months I had a lot of spikes, good days and bad days. It was tough going.
