      Cause of Tinnitus:
      Hello everyone, I have a problem that comes back these days. When I hear a sound, such as a firefighter siren, a speaker, sounds will repeat after that. The definition could be palinacousis, but I saw that it was often related to a lesion of the temporal lobe, but it's been 10/12 years since I have that so I think I would probably be dead if it was this diagnosis...

      It goes away for a long time, and comes back particularly in times of intense stress (I suffer from generalized anxiety).

      I wanted to know if anyone else had the same experience.

      Cause of Tinnitus:
      Noise Induced, Prednisone (drones), Barotrauma (distortions)
      Sucks you got no response.

      This fun kind of tinnitus happens to me 100% as well. Typically loud sounds I hear through hearing protection, or sounds in the distance in quiet will "stick" even in their pattern, always around 200-500 Hz.

      Lesions won't kill you but a tumour might. I think mine's seizure like activity.
      I'm getting an MRI to confirm lesions of temporal lobe.
