Since my tinnitus started 3 months ago, it just seems to keep slowly getting worse. Started with a 1 hour visit to a nightclub my sister pressured me into going to, even though I never liked loud noises. I thought it would be okay even though it was uncomfortably loud, and stayed because my sister kept telling me how happy she was I came with her. Everything I heard about nightclubs prior was they would only damage your hearing over many nights. Had tinnitus that night but it was gone in the morning. I only noticed the tinnitus again a week after the event and it was very subtle. It seems to be just getting worse since then. I tried seeing 2 ENTs, 1 a week after and 1 a month after, and both told me nothing could be done and sent me away. Never had tinnitus in my life before this at all, and it feels like a curse. Silence was one of my favorite experiences in life. It's never getting better and new tinnitus sounds just keep popping up as I get used to old ones. I still go to a bar every Friday that has previously tolerable music playing, but now I'm worried each time is damaging my ears more. This was never a problem before, but are my ears easier to damage now that they've been damaged already? Also kind of pissed I was never warned about loud music by anyone, even though apparently 10% of the population has tinnitus of some kind.
