      How do computer games affect your tinnitus. I often play PlayStation and quite often I get fleeting tinnitus, maybe because of the stress. What about you?

      Acoustic Trauma
      Depends on the games I play, nothing on MechWarrior but the car on mad Max tends to aggravate a little. If I get too stress, I run crusader king 2, Shogun and others for the relaxing music and pace.

      Not really sure...Bad ear infection?
      Doesn't affect my T, so it probably won't affect yours.

      Cause of Tinnitus:
      going for a rim shot on the snare drum.
      def effects mine sometimes..i got this sensation the other night like my hearing was going in and out from the left ear to the right. Cant even say my hearing was going in and out because I honestly am not sure what was going on but I did feel a sensation. I play madden and it can be stressful as hell because of all the unpredictable things that can happen. But throughout my Tinnitus experience I have noticed some strange sensations such as a slight pinch type feeling and even today I felt this warm feeling in my left ear. No idea what any of it means unfortunately but nothing has changed for me.

      Tinnitus Since:
      Cause of Tinnitus:
      Noise / T worsened with antiobiotics
      No effect though I always keep the volume at a low level. If anything, anytime I'm playing a game, I completely forget my T is even there.
