      Tinnitus Since:
      Cause of Tinnitus:
      Hello everyone, my name is Chris. I've had tinnitus for 10 years and some days it's the worst. I have several factors that could be causing it such as TMJ, allergies and a lot of stress. After a four hour test at the University of Buffalo, it was determined that the culprit was most likely stress and not years of loud music. However, I have not been faithfully in trying to relieve my stress, change my lifestyle or do exercises to relieve the TMJ. I think part of me is afraid that if I do all these things and the Tinnitus is still there I will be lost. The other big thing is how stressful I get at concerts. Even though I wear earplugs I will always have panic attacks thinking that it is getting worse and usual end up leaving. But with all the research being done and finding positive stories I know one day it will be better. The anxiety is the killer part for me.

      Hi Chris

      If you want to be completely protected at concerts, use ear plugs under ear muffs. Double protection will serve you well.
