      It seems most tinnitus is sound induced, but I think my ringing is infection or inflammation.

      It's only been about 1 week of the ringing, only in my left ear. It's a bit quieter than it was the 1st day. I think I've had a sinus infection for a few months now too. I'm already on Turmeric, Oil of Oregano capsules, and I put mullein garlic oil in the ear.

      If you guys have any advice, it would mean so much. I'm open minded. I feel this is very early on, and I want to help my body as much as possible to knock this out, so it's not a long term issue. <3

      I have read that prednisone/prednisolone may be effective in the early stages. For natural stuff, maybe NAC and magnesium.

      Hey man

      My best advice is to be in noise as much as possible. Never in silence.
      That's what caused my tinnitus to stay.
      I was jobless and day and night I was in total silence listening for my tinnitus sound. Weeks after I started listening to bird sounds all day long and was able to totally kick my tinnitus out. Silence like a miracle.
      Unfortunately I couldn't do it everyday and slowly my tinnitus started to become permanent.

      But you have really high chances of having silence again.
      I read 90% of tinnitus cases resolve themselves alone. Your brain is filtering it if you don't give it attention.

      You must believe it will go away. And I am sure it will.

      Hi @Joshua12345 -- I would recommend this compelling 6-Min. Video: -- Chronic Sinus Problems? Try the Bulletproof Sinus Rinse

      I would also recommend this thread: -- DMSO & Magnesium Oil for Tonic Tensor Tympani Syndrome (TTTS)

      I think you're on the right track in exploring alternative things. (y) In my mind, the things that are likely to be less costly, lower risk, and higher likelihood of success.

      Does sitting in silent environment really make tinnitus permanent?

      Everyone hears ringing in ACTUAL complete silence. An example. When I was in prison in my early 20s I didn't have tinnitus. But at night when there was no noise and you sit in your cell, you hear ringing while reading or w.e. not just me, ask anyone who's been locked up.

      It's just started and it's in one ear, you sound a lot like a few people I've know in real life. One was a medicine they took, one was allergies, both had temporary tinnitus from inflammation. Both got prednisone shots and prednisone pills and it was gone for one in 2 months and the other just over 3 months. So do the steroid stuff, eat clean. Go to a sauna, and your tinnitus may very well go away. Most of the people here are long term sufferers because we are unlucky as fuck. But most times tinnitus goes away in a few months, only 10% of people who have tinnitus have it last more than a few months and I've known dozens of people who have had temporary tinnitus for a few months, some more than once. Stay positive.

      I would say no, but the more your brain listens to your tinnitus sound the more it focuses on it and remembers it.

      So you should try as much as you can to be in noise.
      But just sitting in a silence room few minutes won't make it permanent.

      Plus yours is from an inflammation so there is high chance it will go away after the inflammation is gone.

      Up until I got tinnitus my normal lifestyle was being awake at night and sleeping during the day, both in complete silence.. You can imagine the shock to my routine this was :0. But as above I've spoken to many people about tinnitus since the majority of them who've had it.. It's resolved. After a few months, 3, 6, 8 months. Kind of deal. I can't hear mine at all right now as it tends to shut off at 9pm local time every night... I have no clue why. As soon as the Spring time arrives properly I'll be outside all day with the birds and hopefully that'll be in time before it gets stuck.. I have some NAC on the way. I just got done reading a research paper about it versus tinnitus from a local university. Seems the only thing that has real potential (magnesium also I guess)

      Thanks for the comment man. I was reading that prednisone is for noise/trauma related T. Would it work for me if it's Sinus/Ear infection related? Heard it has bad side effects, but if it fixes the T it'll be worth it.

      ALSO I went to an Infrared Sauna on Day 2 of the ringing (detoxing from another issue i have), and man the sauna made the T LOUD. Not sure if it was the heat or just quiet of the sauna, but that was the loudest I've had it. Went down in volume soon as I stepped out.

      Hope you're right and I hope it goes away. I just want to make sure I do my part in research/learning, so whatever the result, I don't have regret later on saying "What if I did this, that, etc"

      Prednisone is a corticosteroid. So it's an anti-inflammatory and prescribed for any type inflammation. Infection means inflammation.

      For the bad side effects, what did you read? There is very few at low dose and for short course.

      The bad side effects come with big doses and long courses, but that will not be you.

      Do they still do it as an injection at the ENT, and then wean off it with a pack? Or would I only do a the pack/pill version?

      Generally it's offered as a pill, but if you are known for having side effects, then the IT route is recommended as it is not a systemic drug that can affect the whole body: it is localized to the middle ear to diffuse into the inner ear.

      Your doctor should give you pros/cons for each option.

      @Joshua12345
      It is possible that the most common cause of pulsatile tinnitus hearing a heartbeat sound when ear is to a pillow is sinus wall abnormalities. If your ENT isn't helping, see an allergist. It may be just some things that you are sensitive too.

      It's also ringing/fullness in left ear, but yeah that could explain the heartbeat to pillow. Or maybe both are related?

      Going to see the ENT soon so I'll find out how helpful he is. How would an allergist be helpful in this regard?

      Micro fluid from sinuses can leak into the middle and inner ear. Fluid from sinuses leaking (traveling) into the inner and middle ear can press against the eardrum and nerves that can cause fullness. With that T and/or pulse sounds. PT - a heartbeat sound - more so by gravity to the ears when the head is not straight up . You may not have ETD dysfunction. That can be noticed if your Eustachian tube fails to open when yawning. PT is not ear damage, it's just an echo (sound waves) from an external source.

      Do you think the T will go away once the sinus issue is cleared?

      YES. -- Never take any sinus meds just before a shower or before using steam or any other treatments. If you are using meds, take them afterwards - 20 minutes later. This is one big mistake that many make.

      Because of Pulse sounds, it's good to have complete blood testing. Results can show so many things beyond - lack of or too much of a vitamin, infection and any thyroid problems.

      Do you have any jaw or neck problems - soreness?
      Headaches or any other problems? Throat soreness?
      If so, then we can talk more.

      We can also talk more about this, if needed.
      Allergies are often the source of Sinus Problems. Studies show that more than 50 percent of sinus problems are allergy-related, with the rest caused by a combination of allergy and non-allergy related symptoms.

      I had pulsatile tinnitus for a long time, but I don't know why it never bothered me. It was just when my head was on the pillow or doing sports, or waking up too fast.

      Although it has been a long time when I last heard my pulse on the pillow. And I don't have any allergies or didn't have any other problems, I was super healthy when I experienced that.

      Just my experience, everyone's different.

      Considering both quotes together, Your PT, probably was just from being hypertense - blood pumping too fast.

      I had PT last year for almost two months during an ear infection. Eventually it went away. I can hear my pulse in my ears while laying on a pillow anytime.. But that's not the same thing. I bought a memory foam pillow to stop that, it helps absorb the sound

      Yes actually it never was a problem and still is not. I think it's a "normal" pulsatile tinnitus. Well I don't consider it tinnitus. I think it's different.
