      Dental update: So I had my teeth cleaned with the sonic tool. My perception of T increased for a few days, but my T did not increase :)

        Does Sonic tool is the same as ultra sound tool?

        @Bill Bauer I felt fine after the filling. There was very little drilling. A few seconds at a time. No change to my T, so I scheduled a cleaning since I had a lot of tartar. That was yesterday. Now I THINK my T is louder, but I'm hoping it's just my perception. I'm worried because usually when it's only my perception, I’m okay the next day. Today it still seems louder and I'm afraid I made a bad choice.

        Was the cleaning done manually, or was it done with an ultrasonic tool?

        Some of both. I had the drill last week, the sonic and the polishing tool this week. Hopefully it's my perception that has increased and not the tinnitus. I need more time to be sure.

      Got water in my ear. After 10 minutes of tilting my head, I felt the water dislodge but I didn't feel anything drip out. Now it feels weird.

        Did the water in your ear get out and did it worsen your T?

        I'm assuming it got out when I felt the drop dislodge. It felt weird for a while but my T did not change.

      I took one dose of Azithromycin (500 mg). I can't say for sure if my T is affected because my anxiety is still sky-high. Time will tell.

        EVERYTHING you do in life is taking a risk. You can choose to never sit in a car or cross a street ever again. There might be a drunk driver around the corner! Sitting in front of a computer is not good for your health (I know, I have RSI pain and bad posture), maybe you should never use a computer again? You have to calculate risk vs benefit. I am guessing the risks of not getting it done outweight the risks.

        @Johan_L I understand your point about risk vs benefit. It is all a gamble. I suppose the rational choice is to gamble and hope for good luck. Part of my problem is that most of the people I know who have had medical treatment had bad luck.

      On Friday my job is going to have a test of their emergency system. For two hours there will be random messages and tones. The memo says ...
      1. SugarMagnolia
        SugarMagnolia
        ... "please expect that the messages and tones may be, at times, quite loud." If they think the messages and tones are loud, imagine how loud they must be!!

        The memo also says "No action is necessary on your part." That's right. No action is required on my part because Friday is my day off! Thank goodness!

        Still, reading the memo is so scary. If it wasn't my day off, I would have to call in sick. And if I wasn't an employee and I just happened to be there at that time, I would probably be permanently damaged. It's a reminder that no matter careful I am, additional permanent damage is just one instance of bad timing away.

        My T didn't spike but it gave me quite a scare. This is why I only use speakerphone. After my accident, I was afraid to put a phone to my ear. And now I know that my decision was the right one. You never know when someone's bluetooth or whatever will emit high-pitched feedback. It's bad enough coming from a speakerphone. I wouldn't want it directly in my bad ear (or in my good ear, which I want to stay my good ear).

        A truck pulled up next to me and the brakes screeched so loudly. Even though it only lasted a moment, it was extremely loud and high-pitched. Often it happens that something like this just "unhabituates" me, but this time my T seems objectively louder.

    Tinnitus Since:
    02/2016
    Cause of Tinnitus:
    Acoustic Trauma
    I acquired tinnitus at 3PM on February 5, 2016. I was attempting to use a speaker phone on a conference call. I couldn't hear anything, so I thought it wasn't on speaker phone any more. I put the phone to my left ear and at that moment, feedback blasted into my ear. That was the last I knew of silence.

    The ringing in my ear has been exactly the same from that moment until 4PM on February 27, 2018 when I sat in the wrong chair in a doctor's waiting room. The door made a high-pitched beep whenever the door opened and the door was on my left side. Someone opened the door and my ear got blasted. The tinnitus sound went up and for the first time I felt "fullness" in my ear. Until this moment I didn't know what people meant by fullness. That's my tale of woe.
