      Tinnitus Since:
      12/21
      Cause of Tinnitus:
      High pitch sound, solvent fumes via carpet adhesive, or cvd
      Sound induced tinnitus would typically be associated with high decibels (amplitude).

      If tinnitus was caused by a high frequency (high pitch) sound, would the sound have to be particularly invasive?

      Thing is in my case, day time I can't really hear the external sound I think may have caused my tinnitus. Night time the external sound is this constant ring and audible, but I'm not sure if that was what caused the mild tinnitus I'm experiencing.

      Question being, if it were high frequency/pitch sound causing the tinnitus, would that sound be unmistakable, or could it be a background type sound that you may or may no notice depending on other surrounding noises?

      P.S. I have acquired tinnitus somehow:

      - Either from this sound (which is a water pump underneath my new apartment).

      - Solvents used as carpet adhesive in a new carpet laid in said apartment.

      - COVID-19 booster vaccine.
