      I shall take a moment to say a word or more on noise induced tinnitus.

      First off concerts, those of you who now have acquired tinnitus from loud concerts, I feel for you, acoustic tinnitus is one of the worst types one can get. The damage it does to the inner ear and hairs is more than that of infectious tinnitus. But as most folks think, "Oh the music will be grand and I'm really excited about going." Only to find that the sound was turned up to 1000 decibels destroying everyone from normal hearing. Then you wake up and there's this ringing or some variation of noise in your head. Ahhh the sneaky tinnitus has struck, driving most people mad and blaming the concert. Now suffering. Hoping it will go away tomorrow, it won't, now you've a long journey of trying everything to calm the noise in your head. Lucky for those of you that have found this forum, with the help of those who suffer the same.

      A recent study shows that mobile phones are the next generation of noise induced tinnitus oh you think 80 decibels is alright. No it's not if that person has their ear buds in all day and only take them out to say hello to their other friends with their ear buds stuck in their ears. No cure. It's that simple. So here's some advice, if you plan a concert take ear protection along you don't have to stand right next to the amplifier to listen.

      Give your ears a break for an hour using that mobile phone plugged in your ear.
      So be good to yourselves, stay positive learn to accept tinnitus, read Michael Leigh's posts on tinnitus. It's very helpful.

      Peace

      A person losing all hearing on one side due to an ear infection is better off than someone with noise-induced tinnitus?

      I've got ear infected tinnitus and after that I now am wearing hearing aids and with a white noise app for the aids, I still can hear the ringing. May as well be deaf.

      @Elmer B Fuddled

      Sorry to hear the masking doesn't work. If yours is due to infection and it bothers you, why say noise-induced is worse?
      It would mean having both causes for a person to be able to make that claim, no?
      Do the hearing aids not help a bit? How much hearing loss do you have due to the infection?
