      Hello all,

      My name is Ronnie I am new to the forum it's a pleasure to meet you all. For past 2 years and 7 months I've had very mild Tinnitus. I lost 45% of my hearing in the 9000hz range on both ears. I lost my hearing due to noise exposure. I was playing in a band and forgot to bring my earplugs. A couple of days ago I was at the store and I realized that I can hear my T on my right ear over the noise. Normally I only hear it in a quiet room. So I went home and checked my hearing. I have an app that tries to find the range of your T. I use to use this app as a baseline on how loud my T is. I bring the volume down until I can no longer hear the the sound from the app. Usually I can hear it up until 3 volume bars on the iPhone on both ears. This time I can only hear it over 6 volume bars on my right ear. It seems that I have more hearing lost on my right ear. I can no longer hear 9000hz to 10500hz. I don't understand it as I was not exposed to any loud sounds and I am really careful. Now my T on my right ear is loud. I can hear it in places where I would normally hear it. I feel so terrible. I just want to crawl under a rock and die. As I am typing this my right ear is blaring on. I am hoping and praying that this is only a temporary spike but the fact that I have more hearing loss tells me that it's not. I am so depressed and panicked at the moment. I am trying my best to stay calm but it's so difficult. I don't know what I should do. I just wish that my T was back to its old self. I use to complain on how annoying it is at times. But now I would be extremely happy if it would just go back to how it was. Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated.

      Thank you so much for taking the time to read my post.

      Cheers,
      Ron

      Hearing loss might be temporary and also there may not be an additional damage in your cochlea (sensorineural hearing loss). Have your hearing checked and hope that your bone conduction test is fine.

      It's probably a spike that'll settle down after some time. Think good dude.

      Thanks man! I know I'm panicking and jumping to conclusions. I'm praying that this is just a spike and will go away. If not I guess I have to figure out another way to habituate. It's too bad; a few days ago I just told my wife how happy I am that my T is almost non existent. I guess I jinxed it.

      Yeah i believe that, whenever i say that hey today it's so quiet, the next day it takes revenge. Must be so careful with every move, it's almost like our brain is from glass and will shatter in the first mistake.

      I have exactly the same thing. No sooner do I think to myself that it is a bit quieter and I am coping well, then the following day it is terrible again for a few days.
