      I'm not talking about having tinnitus go away. It has been 8 months onset of whatever hurt my ear and I feel like I keep injuring it by doing normal things like going to a restaurant. I am never anywhere that has dangerous decibal levels. Does this ever heal so that I am not reinjuring it? If so, how long does it take? What might i be doing wrong?

      Have you had your ears checked by the doctor and an ENT? (ear nose throat specialist) You say your ears hurt?
      This is not just tinnitus then. Get in touch with @glynis-harbron or @Michael Leigh when you get a moment. They may have more answers for your hurting ears and are both eager to help in any way possible to help you get to the bottom of this. Good luck and I sure hope this goes away for you soon.

      They can heal to an extent but it depends how much damage has been done. Hair cell damage does not repair though. Which is a shame.

      I have seen 2 ENTs, 2 neurotologists, and a neurologist. None of them know what is wrong with me. I do have more than just tinnitus. I was also very dizzy. Prednisone takes away my dizziness. No one can figure out why. I am seeing a Dr at Mass Eye and Ear soon. Hopefully, they will at least be able to figure out what is wrong.

      I hope you can find some answers. This really is something that needs to be investigated.
