I’ll never have true silence tho. I have noise induced and two different barotraumas. So for me silence is being able to only hear it inside May 27, 2022 at 5:27 AM

        Did you ever get red hot ear afterwards, or pain, or any low pitch tones?

        And this is my antidotal story. If I was not in the military and was forced to leave the house and work. Idk if I would of gotten better and I’d probably still be house bound from anxiety and the PTSD of it all.

        Also I know that before all of this. I listened to a lot of loud music and loved loud sounds. And my gf who is not around loud stuff hates loud things. Same with a lot of other people. The noise you’re constantly around is what your brain is accustomed to. I guess with tinnitus. We just have to get comfortable with safe sounds.

        @Michael Leigh I have always compared my tinnitus to yours. Mine behaves in exactly the same way. Even today it was so quiet it was barely there even with plugged ears. But only an hour ago, I could here it over the tv. It’s such a strange beast.

        Our brains must be malfunctioning. It it could just get stuck on quiet mode that’d be great

        Once you fully habituate to tinnitus @Marshall, fluctuations in tinnitus will not bother you as much. This takes time and doesn't come easy. It took me 4 years to habituate for the 2nd time.

      In high school, there should be an in depth class on hearing loss and the possible effects it may have on you.

        Being such a health freak I’m surprised I wasn’t more adamant about my hearing.
        I did that a couple of time @Wrfortiscue lol I used to jam out while mowing the lawn lmao the ignorance.

        It actually got a lot worse, but it’s slowly getting better. I’m starting to see more good days than bad. And even though it’s still way worse from the start I can deal with it a lot better.

        Ohh I'm really sorry it got worse. I'm glad you're able able to handle this horror for some days. I wish you all the best for the future, and who knows, maybe a return to normal life sooner than you think. We’re in this fight together. Stay strong !

        All my life I have read stories of people pushing back all odds to accomplish the impossible. You can heal significantly from this but we have to get you first to believe that this is possible.
