Hello, I have been lurking this thread for a few weeks and wanted to say that it has been very helpful in this time of my life. I finally decided to make an account and start asking some questions. I turned 22 last month and take good care of my ears. I'm really perplexed. I developed tinnitus in my right ear around 4 weeks ago. I wasn't doing anything. I was just at work, wiring a hot tub circuit. I got into the truck to take a break and noticed a hiss in my right ear. I had headphones in at the time, but they were hanging out of my ears and at a low volume. I am an electrician, so I do hear things like nail guns sometimes, but they are far away and I take good care of my ears. I didn't really care or notice for a week or so, until I started dwelling on it. Now, it has grown to be something I hear most of the time. It drives me insane and I can't relax. It has not changed and it remains a singular low hiss, but it still is enough to drive me crazy. I have tight shoulders, mediocre posture, and my jaw has popped in the right side of the joint as long as I can remember. When I rotate my neck to the left (tensing the right side of my neck muscles), the hiss gets louder. As soon as I relieve pressure, it decreases. I squat at my job a lot, and I know that I have poor posture. So is there any chance that this situation could be muscular/skeletal? If so, would stretches and muscular therapy make it go away potentially? I do not take pain killers or any drugs of any kind. I never have smoked and have never drank any alcohol. I've never been to a concert and I never go to bars or clubs. The loudest volume I'm ever exposed to is that of the occasional lawnmower or motor. I highly doubt I have hearing loss... I'm honestly so unsure as to why this has happened, or where it came from. I was not exposed to any loud noises or acoustic trauma at all when this started. I was just quietly working on a deck alone in the mountains. Any ideas? Will it go away, maybe? Thanks.
