      Hey all,

      I banged my forehead hard a couple of times within a short time.

      Now I have an extremely bad tinnitus spike.

      Can hitting your forehead cause hearing damage?

      I did hear new chip chip sound a couple of times an hour later but that is gone now.

      Thank you for your advice!!

      Hi, sorry to hear about that. During my 2.5 years with tinnitus, I’ve hit my head a few times, never particularly hard. These things happen and are unavoidable. When I have done this, sometimes I get spikes, but they have been temporary, sometimes a few hours, once it lasted a couple of days. Good luck.
