Hello I live in California, bay area. I noticed tinnitus in my left ear around new years. I suspect it was induced by going to a Hi-Fi audio store and listing to some audio equipment. However I'm not sure because I've had a few other issues over the past couple of years: 1. Multiple ear infections. 2. Prolonged wax build up, without regular cleaning (no medical insurance to see doctor). 3. I hear a "cracking" noise when I move my jaw. Possibly blocked Eustachian tube? 4. Lots of stress from new job. I'm hoping that my Tinnitus is caused by 3. Did anyone else get lucky and find their Tinnitus was a simple Eustachian tube fix?
