Hello Decided to write as this sight is the most positive I've come across and I can really use some support.. After a couple of decades of regularly attending shows and listening to (loud) music in headphones, I 1st experienced light symptoms of T in my left ear after a Gutter Twins show in Boston in about 2011. Though persistent and accompanied by a bit of hearing loss, it wasn't an attention grabber and life went on as usual. Then, this past Fall, I was proscribed an antibiotic that made both of my ears ring so loudly it was distracting for the duration. This dissipated in my right ear; but ever since- whether I'm just fixated or...(?)- the high pitched ringing in my left has been consistent- even growing louder it seems- and has really started to get to me. By day I tend to be in social environments and I notice it less; but as soon as I am home, it's there and has me feeling quite panic-y. The thought of this being the case forever- or God forbid- Worsening still.... I have an appointment at Mass Eye & Ear in a month; but I'm just starting to feel very fearful. Would love to believe I can habituate and continue on with the high quality existence I am so grateful to have; but I'm fearful.... Do not wish to engage in pharma..
