      Tinnitus Since:
      Cause of Tinnitus:
      going for a rim shot on the snare drum.
      I saw an ENT today. Hearing is normal and I was prescribed cortisone... My symptoms have really been decreasing this week... Not a lot of noises going on during the day but it does come back at night...

      I heard cortisone has actually made tinnitus worse in some situations... is this true and based on the way I am progressing after a week should I risk it? Only a week and a half in. Thanks guys

      Cortisone usually helps, not make it worse. If you are improving already, don't take it as it's unnecessary.
