        1.5 months is way too short period to clear up tinnitus. You have to give it a lot of time, may be 6 to 12 months or even longer. For some people it takes 18 to 24 months to clear up. In my case, my tinnitus just became a hiss after 3 months, and continued for another 3 months, I never had spikes. It went away after 6 months . Your tinnitus may go away or may not. But you will get used to it in the long run.

      Hi! I have read your story and know you were diagnosed with ETD. My T is not ETD caused, but seven days ago my ears started cracking everytime I swallow, and my ears feel full (but my hearing is not affected). Did you had those symptoms?

        Hello! I am sorry for your suffering. Not really but I had decreased hearing in my left ear due to ear wax build up.

        Hi Elbert, It took 5 and a half months to stop my tinnitus. , I actually had hissing and high pitched tone, not ringing. I advice you to read my thread in success stories section, and I have written the full story there. Your tinnitus is so new, hang in there. I guarantee it will get better after 3~ 4 months.
