      Tinnitus Since:
      Cause of Tinnitus:
      neck trauma
      I have been having pain and discomfort above my pubic bone, around that area for months, went to a Sexual health clinic and got the swab, urine and HIV tests, all negative, then I went to my GP and done a urine test, saw my GP today about this discomfort I'm having and she said they found a bacteria in my urine test which can cause these symptoms, not sure what the bacteria is called, it begins with H, so she prescribed me Penicillin antibiotics, 4 times a day for 10 days, 250mg.

      now I'm aware that some people have gotten Tinnitus from using antibiotics, although I have checked the side effects of Penicillin online and it does not say it can cause Ringing in the Ears, I already have Tinnitus from a neck problem and I'm a bit worried taking this Penicillin will make it louder or worse, but I of course don't want this bacteria they found to stay in me.

      I'll take Probiotics while I take this antibiotics to keep myself healthy, I've taken other antibiotics before with no issues, from what I read penicillin seems safe but I'm not sure.

      I took pencillin as well. My T was fine. Make sure to take it to kill off the bacteria.

      I took Biaxin (clarythromycin) for an ear infection 2 years ago and it increased my T. Avoid at all costs!!
