        It was sucked up by useless habituation research. Tinnitus research in the 90's and 00's was like a black comedy.

    Tinnitus Since:
    July 28, 2019
    Cause of Tinnitus:
    25 years of loud noise (who am I shittin'?)
    My T consists of:
    - constant medium tone ring in both ears.
    - a high pitched hiss/ring in my right ear that is reactive to every noise (footsteps, keyboard, speech, etc.) AND somatic (gets loud if I touch my temple/jaw/bend down/turn my head to either side).

    The hearing in my right ear felt worse at first. Now, they feel equally loud, but I have sound distortions in my right ear that consists of beeping/feedback ringing over music and other noises. (is this recruitment or what??)

    I had pretty rough H upon onset, but no longer (besides aching pain that visits my right ear every few days and lasts maybe a day).

    My right jaw clicks, don't know if that is relevant or not.



    Probable cause:

    I have played drums all my life. (usually with protection)
    I always played music in the car pretty loudly.
    I used to frequent shows and concerts, and stand up front. (almost always with plugs)
    I am also an avid runner- used headphones while running 3-5 times a week since I was 13.

    I was an idiot. I had no idea that tinnitus was even a thing.
    I'm only 25.
