Hi All, I'm glad this forum exists, i wish i would have gone on it right away... i think my staying away was part of my denial phase. I am an audio guy by trade and have had very very low T for a long time due to wearing headphones at work, as well as the occasional loud concert. Long story short about 6 weeks ago i went to a very loud concert and spent a very long time there without ear protection. Since then my T has become much more noticeable and taken on some new qualities, much like a TV white noise (from the old CRT style monitors), as well as a slight jitter more in my left ear that sounds kind of digital. I noticed some hypersensitivity at first but that has subsided and the T seems to have reduced slightly, or i've just gotten used to it. I went to an ENT about 3 weeks after and they didn't have much to say besides that it can take a long time to calm down sometimes, or stay permanent. He recommended that i see an audiologist, but i haven't yet due to insurance reasons. I didn't notice any hearing loss, but after reading the forum i'm concerned that it could also be an issue, and it seems i'm too late for steroids. The main reason i'm posting here is that i'm 6 weeks in which gives me about another 6 weeks to do HBOT treatment if i'm going to, but i also understand that the sooner the better. Although my problem doesn't keep me awake at night, my career is involved and if i can i'd like to reduce it as much as possible. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Also any information regarding a place to go in/around NYC that is affordable is super useful. Thankyou and best wishes.
