      Uncertain, now very somatic, started with noise?
      That's supposed to be an ironic title, of course.
      But people who have suffered an acute acoustic trauma know, at least:
      This trauma destroyed my auditory cells.

      People for whom the cause is not so clear are in the dark. Notice all kinds of somatic phenomena, observe their jaw (TMJ?), notice pulsatile patterns, and end up wondering if they are still clear in the head at all.
      They do not know what to do diagnostically and certainly do not know what makes therapeutic sense.

      I find this complete typing in the dark more difficult than a clear, comprehensible cause.

      Probably my limited knowledge of English led to a possible misunderstanding.
      And to no answer here....

      I get what you mean, it bugs you when you don't know the exact reason for your tinnitus or hearing loss. But personally I still say I'd much rather take that than an event that I know caused it, because the self blaming is brutal and the worst damn thing about this whole thing. You cannot forgive something you cannot forget.

      If I would have had no control over the reason that caused it, I would have accepted it already and moved on with my life.

      after cold and ear syringing 20-30% of volume 06/2018
      I agree with Tempest.

      The worst is if you know the cause, and it was self inflicted, like me.
